I’m following the Disney Infinity story for quite a while now. On August 18th it will be released in the U.S.A. The release for Germany is scheduled for the 22nd of August. And I have to admit, I love it! I mean all these worlds and characters, that’s just the right amount of Disney to get you through a rainy stay-at-home day.
Well. If it weren’t for the quite expensive price. I know, games and merchandise are there to gather money for the company. But Disney Infinity is quite expensive, especially if you take into account that the starter pack costs you almost $75. Alright, you get three play sets (Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Incredibles), as well as three characters (Mr. Incredible, Jack Sparrow, and Sulley). But to experience the real fun of this game, you have to invest into more characters, play sets and power disc sets, the latter unlock special power ups or special gadgets, vehicles, and themes. Characters go for $12.99 each, or special 3-packs for $29.99. I can give Disney credit for including two characters into each play set, wich will be available for $34.99. Power disc sets include two power discs and are $4.99/set.
You can do the math, can’t you? Here is an example, if you buy the starter pack and the play set for Cars, which already includes the characters Lightning McQueen and Holley, and add five power disc sets, you will have already paid a total of $134.94 for this game – no end in sight. And here is another downside (in my opinion), the first series of power discs (there will be three at the end) contains 20 different discs, but you’ll never know which two discs are included in the set you buy.
Are you looking forward to the release of Disney Infinity? Will you buy it? What do you think about the amount of money one has to invest to experience the fun out of this game?
