First details on Disney Infinity project come out



We finally have the first round of confirmed details on Disney Infinity. I'm not going to round up the info here, simply because we don't know if the title is coming to a Nintendo platform yet. The only platform confirmed thus far is Xbox 360.

Check out the details here

Seems like it would be wasted on a platform which (a) does not match the target audience for Disney and (b) is going to be replaced by this time next year.

So Basically it's a mix of Skylanders, Minecraft and the Lego games.... I could see that becoming some huge phenomenon specially with all of Disney's great IP's

Unless you're selling your game exlusively in Japan, there's no reason to skip a 360 release.

But it's pretty obvious that they also aren't crazy enough to push a project like this and restrict it to just the 360.

Look at the responses here. More than one person has already voiced concerns about the title on the 360. This sentiment was created by 3rd parties themselves, simply by virtue of their own statements that Nintendo systems are for kids and that Sony and MS systems are for adults and "real" gamers.

It's an unconscious bias that people have picked up over the years from constantly hearing it being parroted by developers, the gaming media, other gamers, and even Sony and MS themselves. In that regard it could actually be seen as a gamble to release it on the PS3 or the 360 as the "demographics" that this game are aimed at traditionally only buy Nintendo platforms. Or so has been said, over and over again, ad nauseam...

I wonder if all this marketing garbage may come back to bite them in the end.

But it's pretty obvious that they also aren't crazy enough to push a project like this and restrict it to just the 360.

Most developers never seemed to have a problem with ignoring or trashing on the 50% of the home console market that the Wii represented for years. Who can really say what they're going to do? Besides, we don't know if MS decided to pay Disney gobs and gobs of money for exclusivity or not.

The fact that it wasn't announced for both the 360 and the PS3 suggests that something is going on in the background. Could be exclusivity, limited exclusivity, exclusive DLC, or a deal with MS in regards to advertising such as they have for CoD. We don't know. But a reveal for only the 360 so far says that something could very well be happening.
