Makes perfect sense considering how well Marvel is doing with the cinematic universe. But hot damn would I love to see Buzz Lightyear and Mr. Incredible team up with Captain America and Iron Man.

We need a Disney X Marvel RPG, not this figure based bull crap!

Coming up next? Star Wars! And then it's Vignocchi time 24/7 party!!

I'm prolly gonna have to pick this thing up once it hits PS4.

Can you get some Darkwing Duck figures in Infinity so Captain America and Darkwing team up against Jafar?

So they're going to charge people another $70 for a "new" game set? I hope that's not the case. That would be too exploitative IMO.

Going to keep my fingers crossed that the base stays the same, and it's only the software that needs to be bought.

For what it's worth, Jeff's video description says "software." I can't imagine making people buy a whole new portal. That's mean. But then I guess that Skylanders did it?

Anyway, call me when they start adding Disney characters from my childhood, like Aladdin, Beast, Prince Phillip, base Mickey Mouse, Goliath, Baloo (clothing optional), etc.

Johnny V did it, he finally chased that dragon.

Oh, dear. I was hoping they'd avoid this, especially after seeing the negative reaction to the idea on the Infinity boards and subreddit.

It's not too late to bring in Lucasarts characters, Johnny. Let's see some purple tentacle.

I imagine it's only a matter of time before YouTube Let's Players start getting added.

How else would they go about it? You're going to need to buy a new disc + figures.

It's safe to assume that you'll/we'll see new playsets for Spider-Man, X-Men, and The Avengers at the very least and that requires new levels and gameplay features that the base/core game doesn't have.

Jeff made the point long ago that the original DI only had so much on disc, and all of it (with the exception of the lightsaber) was known about early on, so this was always an inevitably.

You're gonna see Disney Infinity: Marvel Universe this year followed by Disney Infinity: Star Wars next year. It'll be like Rock Band, ie multiple games that feed into a larger whole. Every version of Disney Infinity (original, Marvel, Star Wars, etc) will probably have the Toy Box Mode included where all the toys can work together while the playsets remain separate.

You're going to be waiting awhile. Their target demographic is children, as in current children, not the ones from yesteryear like us which is why the base game leans so heavily on current/active properties.

Disney has said they have a 5 year plan for Infinity, but I'm guessing we won't see the Disney Afternoon era stuff till year 5.

If this is for Ps4 then I will definitely buy it. Johnny V hinted to me that they will have "big" announcements at E3, so my fingers are crossed.

I KNEW IT.

Right if they are willing to combine Disney and Marvel for this, there is hope I'll see Sora whacking Captain American in Kingdom Hearts 3.

It was an obvious move since they own them Marvel heroes have even been in Disney shows like Phineas and Ferb. Star Wars won't be far behind I'm sure.

Just in case no-one is aware, Disney Infinity software is currently on version 2.01 according to the start screen (at least on PS3). I imagine that the Marvel figures and associated playsets will launch alongside a PS4/Xbone version of the game, but if they were exclusive to those platforms I'd be very surprised indeed.

No question this announcement has been well and truly botched though.

Edited by LarryDavis

@sarahsdad: If it's coming for PS4 I would have no problem getting a new base too.

@yodasdarkside: Yeah, I highly doubt they'd lock out new figures to the newer consoles... Newer base, though, maybe? I never gave a shit about Sklanders so Infinity is my first manic figure buying video game. And I don't even really play it much, I'm just obsessive.

Put out some Aladdin figures, you fuckers.

Where's my Vignocchi figure?
