Disney Infinity
« on: January 22, 2013, 03:15 PM »
This June, Disney is coming out with a Skylanders type game but based on Disney characters. You buy the figures and then can use them in the game. The game is basically a virtual playset for the action figures. You can fight enemies, build buildings, push buttons, drive vehicles and move figures from virtual playset to playset.

Now that makes me think that since Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars I can see this virtual playset-type game being applied to future Star Wars figures.

Since Disney was able to incorporate many characters from the entire Marvel universe into Disney Infinity, I wonder if they will be able to incorporate characters from the Star Wars universe into the game.

This was just a matter of time.  Release date?

Is this some sort of stand alone system or does it work with an X-box/Playstation?
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Version 2.0 was available for PS4, PS3, Xbox1, Xbox360, WiiU, Android Tablet/Phone, iPad/iPhone, Windows 8 tablets, and PC. 

Starter pack (like the box shown) includes the game/disc, the figure base, and 3 game pieces (either 3 figures or 2 figures and some sort of power-up thingy), but you still need a system on which to play it.

We've got an original hand me down Wii that needs to be replaced with something better.  Now I have an excuse.

Any thoughts on the best system to get for kids currently aged 5-8 that will work with this?

We've got a pile of Wii games, but if WiiU stinks, I'm open to making a change.

The WiiU should do nicely for 5-8 year olds. There isn't a lot available for that age group on the Xbox one or ps4.

Well, unless you're going to buy a ton of games, I'd absolutely go with an XBox One or Playstation.  We got the XBox one for Christmas and both the kids love to play it.  We started off with Disney 2.0, which has a create mode (think Minecraft, but not just cubes of stuff) for all kinds of custom playhouses.  I think it came with a Dance-off sort of game as well.  Then we grabbed a few Lego-based games - Sam's favorite is the Marvel Super Heroes.  His latest acquisition was the Skylanders Trap Force, which is a lot like Infinity where you have to buy the characters to play them.  This has the added element of buying traps to capture bad guys in - then you can play the bad guys in the game.  I've heard good things about the PS4 as well - I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.  You're also coming in at a time where ou might be able to get the games/system/figures for a lot less than last year.

My boys already started their Christmas list for this one.  They were also loving the fact that Disney confirmed they will be releasing an Age of Ulton based playset with Hulkbuster Iron Man and Ultron figures.
