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"

Yeah it sounds quite good and Avalanche are really good, they made one of the best sandbox game ever (Just Cause 2) and made a good job with Toy Story 3 and Cars. Now it also says that the building part is currently not featured on the ipad version. I really hope those features make it into the final version...

Whether or not the extra features are included, I'll still be happy to play an open sandbox game made by Avalanche on my iPad.

EDIT: Btw, shouldn't this be in the upcoming iPad section?

Well if they say "including consoles, the iPad and Android phones" I'm assuming they meant IOS and said "Ipad" because that was the device used for the demo. If there's any indication in January that this is ipad exclusive i'll move it to the right forum but I doubt they would limit themselves and release it only for the ipad.

I'd wait for an official announcement on that. It seems like a generic statement from Polygon, the same thing can be said about the fact they only mention the ipad for IOS. Let's wait and see!
