    It is definitely an exciting step in the game play and trading direction. And with other emerging technologies focused on creation (eg: MakerBot), I’d love to see a collaboration of customization that translates creations from the game to “one-of-a-kind” objects.

    Great review about Disney Infinity. I haven’t gamed since the 1980’s when I had an Atari. There were many games that came out over the years that I wanted to play, but it wasn’t until I got wrapped up in all the Disney Infinity hype.

    I have a huge learning curve going from the joystick that we used years ago to a controller, but I’m hooked.

    I love all the possibilities and look forward to many hours ahead learning how to play and discovering new things. Like they say, the possibilities are infinite!

    I’m still at that frustration level of trying to figure out how to unlock the potential if toy box mode. My first night of play I discovered that multiplayer only consists of playing with your online friends. I hoped to be able to play with new people and learn what others had done so I had some idea of how to get started.
    I also discovered that the downloadable premade toy box worlds don’t have much you can do until you unlock certain toys. Seeing how Ricky was able to add to the Disneyland area gives me hope that I’ll soon catch on.
    I hope to have Marvel and Lucasfilm characters to play with in the future.

    I have friends going to Orlando next week, so I have ordered all my Infinity goodness so they can bring it with them. 🙂 Although I did skip on the Cars play set simply because I don’t really care for racing games (and things were already pretty expensive!). Now all I need is the actual game, that I’m getting down here in Brazil when it comes out (in 3 weeks or so, apparently) because it’ll be dubbed, and that’s better for my 7 year old. 🙂

    Our family was very excited to play Infinity, but unfortunately we’ve been completely let down by the fact that the Wii version is thoroughly nurtured. There is only co-op play in the playset and no on-line connectivity. We didn’t know this when we preordered it. So we we’re very disappointed. We’re not gamers by any sense but we paid attention to a lot of the hype and read up about it. But we never saw that the Wii version was limited in comparison it to the other systems before it came out (we later learn the Nintendo DS is even more limited). I knew the system was getting long in the tooth but since I didn’t see/hear the Infinity was going to be limited so I wasn’t worried about it. We’re pretty bummed out because so much that we were excited about as a family is missing. Not to mention we paid the same amount for a limited version of the game… I could go on and on but I wanted to throw my 2 cents.

    We do like a lot of what we’ve seen but that almost makes it more frustrating as we watch our 8 year old play while we’re stuck on the sidelines. 🙂

      Thank you for pointing this out. It’s sad Disney didn’t include an online option in there.

    Not gonna lie, highly annoyed by the fact that only one of the characters released so far is a woman, and that there are no female characters included in the starter pack.

      There are currently two females, Mrs. Incredible and Violet. Plus Holley Shiftwell, if you consider a car a female. Rapunzel, Elsa, and Anna are on the way within a few months.

    Is it corporate synergy or serendipity that Marvel’s INFINITY comics crossover event (completely unrelated to the game) was released at the same time?

    Both were in the planning stages for a long time, and were presumably only coincidentally named, but someone at Disney saw an opportunity for some free marketing based on recognition of the word “infinity” alone.

    After playing some multiplayer toy box…. I have to complain about not being able to use the Xbox headset to communicate with the other players. Can’t coordinate on projects and all the other player did was place random objects in the sky.

      You can use audio communication in Toy Box mode. I’ve done it. You have to join Party mode together.

    I think this has been a fantastic launch, I am 23 years old but feel that Disney Infinity brings a kids game in to the hands of gamers and Disney fans of all ages.

    The Toy Box mode truly is a brilliant idea, I have already found myself spending hours and hours creating cool little gadgets!

    I just hope that Disney launch more Play Sets than currently has been released!

    While Disney and Disney Interactive do seek to eliminate the high risks associated with the development of multiple games based upon the short-term successes and popularity of corresponding movies and/or characters, the point to be made is that Disney could have enriched the gaming properties it already had at its disposal without turning its back entirely upon such games and the corresponding (player) communities whom voice and legitimate concerns were, in essence, “blatantly” ignored.

    For example, players loyal to the game “Pirates of the Caribbean Online” (POTCO) maintained an ongoing petition movement for over a year which involved the gain of some 3,000 signatures from players whom had voiced their legitimate concern about the game and the status it was allowed to be kept.

    To date, in the shadow of this report, no hint of acknowledgement of such concerns were ever received by the POTCO community from an official representative of Disney or Disney Interactive despite a total of 50 individuals whom were strategically contacted whom had worked for the company or its interactive, gaming division. http://revivepotco.org/

    (Note: Pirates of the Caribbean Online, ToonTown, and Pixie Hollows will each be shut down by Disney on Sept. 19, 2013)

      It’s unfortunate but when there are not enough players to support the game they are shut down. It’s a shame Disney isn’t going to expend this game on the Xbone and PS4 because their PC architecture wouldn’t make it a lot of work to expend to these platforms and with a new POTC movie on the horizon a renewed interest on the franchise could emerge.

    I think Disney is making a great choice with this platform. Many Disney movie games are bad and with this base they can produce better games. I hope Disney isn’t going to slap on new textures and rehash the same game endlessly.
    For anyone who hasn’t got a console, you have a few option. As said before the Wii version is not complete, the Xbox 360 version needs a yearly service of $60 to play the online component. The PS3 had some upstart problems but is working great now and doesn’t need an online service contract.
    The game will be on Xbox One and PS4 when they arrive. Both console need an online service abo that is $60 for Xbox One and $50 for PS4. The later gives you 2 free games each month (one recurring for some time, the other one new each month). It is said Disney Interactive is making exclusive content for PlayStation 4 but it’s not clear if that are games that only come on the PS4 or exclusive content for Disney Infinity.

    This game is terrible, not worth the time or money. The game play is ok with the play sets but trying to build a world, well it’s way to hard it’s more frustrating than fun

      No, the only play set coming out now is the Toy Story one.

    The Javita review couldn’t be complete without looking at the Javita comp plan.
    The label itself is a combination of 2 Greek words:
    gano means shiny in addition to derma means skin. They have
    black coffee, mocha, a special coffee blend and a
    lot of herbal tea.
