The report of this news comes from the Wall Street Journal, and unfortunately there’s not much information aside from the fact that it’s happening. Most assumed it was only a matter of time before Star Wars and Marvel were brought into Disney Infinity, and now it’s happening. It’s a smart move really, as fans and collector’s (like myself) will buy up the Star Wars Infinity toys regardless of whether or not they actually intend to play the game.
Truthfully, these kind of games haven’t held much interest for me. I like the idea behind them, and the interaction between real world objects and virtual world results, but it’s not something I’m pumped to play. Now, however, with Star Wars jumping into the action, I may end up joining the masses. I’m a sucker for all things Star Wars, I fully admit it, and there are thousands of others like me. In this, Disney has a gold mine waiting to be unleashed.
Hopefully we’ll get more details on the Star Wars expansion to Infinity sooner rather than later. What do you guys think? Are you excited about it? Are you already playing the game?
