The magic word in Disney Infinity is customizability, as the platform allows players to build their own worlds using a variety of Disney and Pixar franchises as inspiration.

While there will be a large number of options included in the game at start, power discs that unlock additional options will be sold at retailers.

Since the announcement of Disney Infinity, the new gaming platform that utilizes both Disney and Pixar franchises, much of the focus has been on the customizability of the initiative.

Disney Infinity is an upcoming gaming platform that will combine the characters from various Disney and Pixar properties for the first time.

Disney Infinity differs from the traditional video game in several arenas, but hardware is where the big difference lies.

Many have stated that Disney Infinity is simply the Disney corporation’s version of Activision’s Skylanders, a franchise that has earned over $1 billion from sales of its game as well as character figures that can be beamed into the game.

The starter pack for Infinity will include one power disc, but other discs will be sold in blind packs. After the break, take a look at 20 power discs that will be included in Series 1!
