Al Zamora from DualShockers talks about how Disney Infinity will profit from its rival, the Skylanders franchise.
is this title the wrong way? is it mean to be: Skylanders Has a New Friend at Retail and It’s Called Disney Infinity?
While Disney and Disney Interactive do seek to eliminate the high risks associated with the development of multiple games based upon the short-term successes and popularity of corresponding movies and/or characters, the point to be made is that Disney could have enriched the gaming properties it already had at its disposal without turning its back entirely upon such games and the corresponding (player) communities whom voice and legitimate concerns were, in essence, "blatantly" ignored. For example, players loyal to the game "Pirates of the Caribbean Online" (POTCO) maintained an ongoing petition movement for over a year which involved the gain of some 3,000 signatures from players whom had voiced their legitimate concern about the game and the status it was allowed to be kept. To date, in the shadow of this report, no hint of acknowledgement of such concerns were ever received by the POTCO community from an official representative of Disney or Disney Interactive despite a total of 50 individuals whom were strategically contacted whom had worked for the company or its interactive, gaming division. http://revivepotco.org/ (Note: Pirates of the Caribbean Online, ToonTown, and Pixie Hollows will each be shut down by Disney on Sept. 19, 2013)
One you find a game or game type you like, you want to see if there is anything else out there similar to it. In this case, now there is, which is how Disney will make money off this.
