Guess you're going to have to stick to its current features for the time being!

Move over, Pottermore! The Hunger Games is coming to getcha.
Lionsgate has really amped up their viral campaign for the upcoming movie as they've launched a new site where fans can register to be placed in their appropriate "district."
Based on events on the popular game, fans will follow the trials of main character Katniss Everdeen, who, like in the book, is selected from 12 districts, along with other teenage boys and girls, to fight to the death.
Director Gary Ross spoke about it, saying:

This morning, the official owl went out to some of the lucky Potter fans who secured their early entry passes into Pottermore, J.K. Rowling's interactive extension to the Harry Potter universe.
The website went live today, with several Potterheads getting to enjoy the whimsical world for the first time ever! Those who have received early access have still have to wait for their Welcome letter via email to have official entry into the site. The idea is to scatter access so the whole thing won't implode before it's even begun!

At first glance at this interactive menu, we have a feeling we will never be hearing from any of your Potterheads ever again come this fall. None of you will be leaving your computers!
Via the website's personal Twitter page come this first glimpse at what is in store at Pottermore.com. The pic is a screenshot of the menu you reach when reading Chapter 6 of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone. Apparently, you'll have the choice of looking around Platform 9 3/4 or hopping directly on the Hogwart's express.
Give a careful look at the screenshot and see what other treasures you can spot!!!
Is it October yet?
