Disney Infinity review: Imagination land

Disney Infinity, powered by a treasure trove of characters, settings, stories and childhood memories, manages to deliver a game that isn't about any of those things. Instead, Disney Infinity is about you. It is a toy box dumped onto your living room floor, brought to life by imagination, both yours and Disney's. That those precious items, packed away in the game, take so much effort, time and ultimately luck to unlock, is the game's one major stumbling block. if you want to play with a child or friend, you're going to have to plunk down some cash Infinity hopes to live up to its name. A play set brings with it two meticulously detailed plastic figures and a set piece. To access the content, a player places the figures and set piece on the Disney Infinity base and they are...

Job ad says Maxis is working on a new franchise, cites Minecraft as model

Maxis appears ready to begin work on a new franchise, according to a job listing that cites LittleBigPlanet, Minecraft and Disney Infinity as models. It could figure to be big news as, since its acquisition by Electronic Arts more than 15 years ago, Maxis has begun only two new series: The Sims, the very profitable, long-running lifestyle series, and Spore, an ambitious but critically panned biology simulator that spawned few expansions and a partial sequel, 2011's Darkspore. The job listing is for a senior designer and says the person will work on "a new unannounced Maxis product." Maxis is looking for someone with experience in "deeply social multiplayer games, such as MMOs," and tips off that crafting and RPG leveling play a large role in this game. Oh, and this game will involve...

Disney Infinity 2.0 is an ambitious attempt to evolve the series and all its characters

Take Disney Infinity as your foundation, then imagine layering a few other experiences on top: an action role-playing game, with a skill tree out of Mass Effect for upgrading the characters' abilities; the procedural generation technology from Minecraft's sandbox world; the game creation tools of LittleBigPlanet; and the interior decoration element of The Sims. That combination is something like Avalanche Software's grand plan for Disney Infinity 2.0, which is set for release this September on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As you would expect, everything from the original game — figures, Power Discs and Toy Boxes — will be compatible with the sequel. But the term "sequel" seems somehow inadequate to describe Disney Infinity 2.0. Publisher...

Disney Infinity success leads to jump in Disney Interactive profits

The Walt Disney Company's Interactive division, which oversees the toy/video game hybrid Disney Infinity, saw a 38 percent increase in revenue during the second quarter 2014, according to an earnings report (PDF link) released today.

Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is 'not just an Avengers game'

The next version of Disney Infinity, Disney Interactive's "toys to life" blend of action figures and video games, is getting a fresh new world for fans to play in: the massive, galaxy-spanning Marvel universe.
