Disney Infinity’s Extra Content Is On Disc, And It's No Big Deal

Game Informer - I was poking around online this morning when I saw this story. The gist of it is that Disney Infinity includes all of the game’s upcoming content on the disc, which a Disney rep says might mean that hackers could uncover it ahead of schedule. Considering Infinity’s ultimate goal of timing that content with movie and DVD releases, it could be a problem for Disney if those announcements are blown before they want to make the info public. (Disney Infinity, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I was commenting on another article about how terrible on disc DLC is, specifically referring to this game. Now that I read this article, I think I misunderstood the way their on disc DLC works, IF this article is accurate. According to the article the on disc DLC everyone's complaining about is unlocked by buying the physical character figurines and plugging them in to your console. I knew that already, but I thought the on disc DLC people were talking about was different. I was imagining that when the next Disney movie comes out you could pay money to unlock that world or something. If it's just the figure thing that's all fine then. That's their whole gimmick. A kid buys the toy, sticks it on the stand, and magically he can play with it on his 360 or whatever. Is this article correct? Is this really what people are complaining about?

I still hate on disc DLC but this is a bit different, in my opinion.

Well if they have to do it like Figures unlocks DLC then I cannot see any other way around it other than patching in DLC which could be huge. Skylanders did it with the addon content. You bought a pirate ship or some other toy which unlocked new areas but obviously that content was already on your system rather on the disc or from a patch. I know people don't like paying for DLC already on disc but would you rather have a massive patch instead? As these new waves of toys unlock characters/levels etc type of games means no dlc comes digitally like with other games. So there has to be some sort of workaround.

iMho ... its still on the disc.... and the toy plays NO role what so ever(didnt read the article,,just coments) in the game itself...

i say they should have put the content on the toy. and when u plug it in .. it copies it over to the system

JUST because its already on the disc,., you should be able to unlock it without purchasing anything at all
