Disney Infinity, first introduced in August, has been tremendously popular with young gamers who love seeing their favorite Disney characters online. This game is similar to Skylanders in that players must collect plastic figures that sit on top of an electronic base to create interactions within the game.
The starter pack for the Disney Infinity game includes the game disc, base, and three figures. Additional figures must be purchased separately. New figures, scheduled for release in late October, will include characters from Toy Story, Wreck It Ralph, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Of the sets that are currently out, the characters from The Incredibles and Pirates of the Caribbean get consistently high reviews for the value they add to the game.
Disney Infinity is currently available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. Parents will be pleased to know that character figures are not machine specific, so children can play with friends on different consoles or get started on their current game system and upgrade to playing on a next generation console when the game is officially released for the Xbox One and PS4.
