Disney Infinity (By Disney and Avalanche Software)

"Disney Infinity will be an open-world sandbox game that combines the best of Minecraft creation with the absurdity of Just Cause's over-the-top action moments, all in a child-friendly world populated by iconic Disney and Pixar characters, according to videos and images leaked to Polygon.

According to developers in one video, Disney Infinity will be broken into two major elements: playsets and the rumpus room.

The virtual playsets are themed after well-known Disney creations like Cars, Buzz Lightyear, Woody's Round-Up, The Incredibles, Wreck-it-Ralph and even classics like Peter Pan and Aladdin. They will include settings, backdrops, toys and action figures. It's likely that if the game comes with pre-created missions or levels, that those would be delivered with playsets.

It is in the rumpus room where we saw players controlling a Buzz Lightyear. In the video, Buzz walks up to a capsule machine, selects an item from a menu and the item drops out in a capsule. When he tosses it, it pops up and becomes what he ordered.

Other bits of the video show characters dropping massive building blocks to create castles, running around inside a highly detailed city as the buildings grow and shrink, change shape and float. Some of the settings seem relatively bare of detail, while others were minutely detailed.

Disney Infinity which will run on a multitude of devices including consoles, the iPad and Android phones will be unveiled in January to a gathering of press in Hollywood"
