This is how the Disney Infinity power discs work

Disney Infinity (1)

I really dig the Disney Infinity toys. Sure, they may be made of powdered Skylanders, but they’re actually pretty darn cool to just have. Heck, I’ve got a Captain Barbossa figure that is sitting on top of my Xbox right now. But there’s more to Disney Infinity than inaction figures. There are power discs as well. Lots and lots of power discs. While you prep your wallet for them, here’s how they’ll work.

The additional pieces that come with Disney Infinity, allow players to unlock new themes, gadgets and vehicles on the fly. I saw it first hand at E3, and the feature does at least work pretty damn quickly when it comes to mixing up the Infinity playbox.

Remember, those extra pieces are going to arrive in lucky packets at a price of R69 each, with about power discs in each packet. I still think that this is some dangerous territory for Disney, as they’re looking to squeeze an extra buck out of a potentially fantastic franchise, but then again, I also see kids trading these discs amongst one another.

There’ll be the usual common, rare and ultra-rare power discs available. Here’s a full list of them, courtesy of AGB:

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

      TWO

      • Rinceandwhere’smyFingT-shirt?

        That is quite expensive. And I can only imagine the bullies at school stealing them of the smaller kids #flashbacks

      • Vampyre Squirrel

        ONLY TWO??? OMG! That’s like getting old games on Xbox Live for free… a total rip off :P

        • Rinceandwhere’smyFingT-shirt?

          it is quite expensive, but I can bet that the kiddies will get their way!

          • Vampyre Squirrel

            yeah, more than likely

  • Rinceandwhere’smyFingT-shirt?

    Love the concept. Why can’t they make am adult version of this? Like Warhammer 40k, or D&D? I’d so be into that.

    • That Super Twit

      Warhammer 40K! YYYEEESS!

      • Rinceandwhere’smyFingT-shirt?

        Can you imagine that? Different disks for dif armour, etc!

        • That Super Twit

          I used to play a little of the table top version & some PC games of WH40K.
          This would be awesome.

    • Unavengedavo

      It would also be cool if they could do something like this for Card games like Yu-Gi-Oh or Magic the Gathering :P

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    I bet at @hammersteyn:disqus will upvote this comment. That man upvotes everything.

    • That Super Twit

      Guess all the comments are just so full of WIN.

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        I think he just has a fascination with the upvote button. Right @hammersteyn:disqus?

    • Rinceandwhere’smyFingT-shirt?

      HAHAHA! Or not ;)

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        I was so sure of myself…..

  • Ultimo_Cleric N7

    What a wonderful new way to get even more money out of gamers…and especially their kids.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I’m shocked that they didn’t even include a jar of Vaseline…

    • TiMsTeR1033

      why on earth would they include that?

      • That Super Twit

        The cost to collect them all.

        • TiMsTeR1033

          and you told me that because??

          • That Super Twit

            You may require the above mentioned Vaseline should you be keen on collecting them all. :P

          • Unavengedavo

            Because you are going to pay through your ass :P

  • Unavengedavo

    I’ll just leave this here…

    • Vampyre Squirrel

      I think he’s just making sure we know it’s out on a ton of consoles

    • That Super Twit

      Sheet! How many consoles!?

      • Weanerdog

        Which is heavier a ton of consoles or a ton of Bredas?

    • Major Commodore 64 Darryn B

      So many consoles, it broke my brain.
