In a press release issued today, Aspyr Media announced that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone has officially shipped for the Macintosh.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a magical adventure based on the sensational literary series by J. K. Rowling. Aspyr licensed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone from Electronic Arts, and the Macintosh Carbon conversion was done by Westlake Interactive.

Here's more on Harry Potter from the press release:

"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is a magical adventure filled with wizardry, fun and danger," says Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr. "J.K. Rowling's books are awesome and the game is a perfect complement, allowing players to be Harry."

Explore Hogwart while solving puzzles, casting spells, battling foes and uncovering secrets. Interact with over 20 unforgettable characters from J.K. Rowling's world, including Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Rubeus Hagrid.

Attend lessons to learn all things magical. Collect Wizard Cards, Chocolate Frogs, and Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. Take flight and play a heart-stopping game of Quidditch on your Nimbus Two Thousand. Even win house points for Gryffinor.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for Macintosh also includes a special Harry Potter trading card game foil-stamped card inside!

"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone will be a success on the Macintosh," says Linda Chaplin, of Electronic Arts. "We are pleased to continue working with Aspyr to bring great EA games to the Macintosh."
