Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes - 2.0 Edition (PlayStation 4)

Infinity just got bigger

Disney was never going to let Activision control the NFC figurine market, and so last year it delivered Disney Infinity – a family friendly title featuring themed Playsets and a LittleBigPlanet-esque Toy Box mode. Disney Infinity 2.0 improves upon many aspects of the original, as well as bringing the franchise to the...

Marvel-ous?

If you’re a regular reader of this site, Disney Infinity 2.0 probably isn’t placed anywhere near to the top of your PlayStation 4 wishlist. However, that doesn’t mean that the release isn’t worth talking about – especially with Marvel characters at the forefront of the package. As such, we’ve teamed up with our friends at...

Comic book cash sink

The game-cross-toy genre is still alive and kicking, with the bigwigs at the House of Mouse announcing Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 earlier today.

Sequel to family friendly money spinner seemingly on the way

Disney Infinity may have been pitched as a big playbox of potential, but it seems like developer Avalanche Software is going to need to have another crack at the concept before truly realising its vision. The company – based in Salt Lake City and not to be confused with Just Cause...

Review: Disney Infinity (PlayStation 3)

Disney Infinity (PlayStation 3)

It's a kind of magic

Let's start off by addressing the flying Dumbo in the room: Disney Infinity is not simply a Skylanders clone from the House of Mouse. It's pure, unadulterated Disney magic – and completely worth the arm, leg, and kidney that you're inevitably about to spend on it. Even before Pixar's seminal 1995 blockbuster Toy Story,...

Warren Spector: PS3 Version of Epic Mickey 2 "Isn't Just Up-Rezzed"

Not just a HD port

The news that Warren Spector's Junction Point was focused on the Wii version of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions being developed by UK-based Blitz Games, may have led to worries that PS3 could see a bare-boned HD port. As Spector explained to Eurogamer.net, however, a 'virtual team'...

Disney's Brave Coming to PS3 with Move Archery

Arro' there

PlayStation Move is set to get another taste of Disney when Disney Pixar's Brave comes to the motion controller this summer. The third-person action adventure uses Move in an archery segment, though hopefully the full game will be Move compatible; you can't beat a bit of wand-waving in a fantasy setting. Disney's not telling us much...

Disney Announces Cars 2: The Video Game, Same Team As Toy Story 3: The Video Game

We'd have thrown this press-release regarding Cars 2: The Video Game in the recycle bin if it weren't for a little tid-bit about the developer

"Cars 2: The Video Game is created by the same studio that brought you the acclaimed Toy Story 3: The Video Game last year." Cast your mind back to the hazy days of Summer '10 and you might remember us raving about the excellent Toy Story 3: The..

TRON: Evolution's Move Controls are Light Cycle Only

Short but sweet

TRON: Evolution is due to de-rez Europe on Friday, and now we've had our first look at the Move controls we can confirm they're a bit disappointing. Considering the game's heavy combat focus and use of a throwing disc, you would have thought Move could have been used in any one of a number of interesting ways, but as it happens the...

Disney and Muppets characters headline

Got over the sting of LittleBigPlanet 2's delay to early 2011? If not, the content in the game's sweet collector's edition ought to do the trick. Ignore the fancy steelbook packaging that looks like Sackboy's furry torso and the five exclusive PSN avatars you'll receive – the downloadable costumes on offer...
