Disney announces plan to print money, calls it Disney Infinity

Disney today announced its video game that blends Skylanders-type figurines, game levels, and an open "toy box" where you can create your own games. Positioned more like a platform than just a game, Disney Infinity is poised to rock the gaming world.

The initial Disney properties represented are Monsters Inc, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Incredibles.

OMG will there be a Boo playable character for Monsters Inc.? My brain just melted. WANT.

Disney Infinity will be available on pretty much everything. Can't wait. Glad I skipped the whole Skylanders thing with my kids...

PSA: Skylanders Giants shows up on Amazon for pre-order, includes Wii U version

Andy Roberston over at GeekDad reports that online retailer Amazon is listing the upcoming Skylanders Giants game for pre-order, and that includes a version for the Wii U console.

There are two versions, with or without the Portal of Power accessory, so if you're like me and you haven't gotten into Skylanders as of yet, you can pick up a complete version with everything included. Nice that they're not making people buy another portal if you already have one, though.

With the way these things are flying off the shelves, if you want a copy of the new game, it might be wise to pre-order now.
