Enter the world of smart toys with Disney Infinity

No, these aren't Skylanders

Today, after much hinting and whispering on Disney fan pages, Disney's answer to Activision's Skylanders was unveiled. The series, Disney Infinity, utilizes figures of well-known Disney characters, like Toy Story's Woody and Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and transports them to the virtual world via the Portal of Power -- I mean, Infinity base. From there, you can choose to play within "play sets," where you can participate in activities specific to a character's world, or enter "Toy Box mode," where you have the chance to mesh characters and worlds and even create your own games.

Like Skylanders, Disney Infinity will start out as a bundle of three characters, the Infinity base, and the game (available for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U initially, followed by 3DS and mobile platforms), with additional figures available for purchase separately. 

Are you excited about this new series, Tomoreaders? Are there any characters you'd like to see?
