An Innovative New Way to Game. Exclusive Demo with Activison

Now these things are cool!

At E3 Activision demoed the next installment of its popular Skylanders franchise but now they have new characters that have swappable tops and bottoms.

That’s right, with the upcoming Swap Force “inter-action” figures, you can separate the top of the character from the bottom and mix and match them with other characters. When you mix and match – it allows you to create different hybrid characters with different powers and abilities. Put it this way… if you collect all 16 new Swap Force characters, you can create 256 different characters. That might keep you busy for a while.

So if you don’t know what Skylanders are – basically you collect physical character figurines and you place them on a “Power Portal"... (Dev, E3, Industry, PC, PS3, Tech, Xbox 360)

I think it's an awesome concept that can be developed much further.

wait wasnt alot of games doing this without the collecting of the toys it seems like theyre trying to find new ways to get this kids to by more of these toy mix and matching part and abilities has been done a ton of times before.

Activision aint slick they know kids luv toys and games, and if you connect the two more $$$.
