I am sure you still need figures and base unless it is like the iOS and PC version.

Still need figurines and a base, but if you have the ps3 or a regular wii version, you can use that base with it!

Though gamers will need to pick up the game's portal and some figures, it's fascinating that the download itself has no cost.

 

still pretty sweet... i got this for the kids for 360 and their 360 broke so maybe i'll put it on the Wii U for them

Unfortunately...the 360 base has a chip that causes any other console to not recognize it...

Has anyone managed to download this yet today?

It's showing as retail only right now. I can't find a download option. Other items that should be here, like Mega Man 6, aren't online either. May not be online yet.

Good point... hopefully it nets at least 10 coins for the post play survey

So, what is a decent price on a base for this? All I saw was $20 or so on eBay, and if I'm paying $20 for a base and $10 for a character, then the free download gets kind of ruined by those immediate costs.

A big reason for this is none of the playsets (Cars, Lone Ranger, Toy Story, etc.) from Infinity work in Infinity 2.0. They just unlock all the toys for the Toy Box. This is a nice way to make sure you can pick up Infinity 2.0 and still play the older sets still at retail.

if that's the route you are thinking of going, might as well buy DI at target this week for $30 lol

Hmm. I have the Wii-U starter kit. Most stores (BB, GS, Target) don't take the game in trade since it requires the base, but Walmart's trade site has a listing for "Nintendo WiiU Disney Infinity (Game Only)", trading in at $9.34.

Not much, but better than nothing if they'll actually take it.

This was released primarily for owners of the Wii game that are upgrading to the Wii U for 2.0. This way they'll get the superior Wii U software without having to rebuy a starter pack.

Nab the starter pack at Target for $30. It includes three figures and a token that unlocks three play sets that aren't available outside of the starter pack.

The free download is literally just the software. Without the figures and token to unlock that actual game you won't be able to do much of anything.

Keep in mind this free download is largely for pre-existing customers, not new ones.
 

thanks for that... nevermind then lol


You can nab a Wii U base for $10 on eBay, and all your existing figures, discs, and playset tokens will work just fine with it.

Well, I'll have to think about that. $30 is a good price, considering I want no part of the Marvel crap in the new one. I just hate the starter packs of the game because the characters are so crappy. I mean, that's obviously their intent there, but it'd be cool if they instead made it a deal where it was the game and its hardware with any 3 characters, then sold the included guys separately with this stuff, instead of making us waste $20-30 on 3 characters most don't care about (compared to the standalone options).

Well, you could always wait it out for the Toy Box Starter Pack for 2.0. That comes with Merida and Switch, plus a base and the 2.0 software.

The newly announced 2.0 Toy Box starter pack is cool. No Marvel stuff, and $20 cheaper.

Skylanders would be nice. My only gripe is how much Activision changed the portal after Giants.

I think I will wait for DI 2.0 to become available in the e-shop before I buy it. This way I don't have to buy another base & I can just buy the characters I want. It's rumored to hit the eshop during the holidays but who knows

Yeah, I think having to buy all the stuff to play the game kills the "deal"

Btw I'm glad that I didn't get rid of the ps3 version that I bought during Black Friday lol

So, is it confirmed that the 1.0 DI stuff won't work on the 2.0 base?  Do you need to keep both bases?

If it lets them do neat things with the gameplay I'm OK with them changing the portal.  The Swap Force portal change for example seemed justified since it was necessary to be able to use the two part characters.  But then requiring a new portal for this year's game (for the really gimmicky seeming traps) feels like it's crossing that line to where they're making changes just so you have to spend more money.  That I don't care for.

The newly announced 2.0 Toy Box starter pack is cool. No Marvel stuff, and $20 cheaper.

 

So what, $55 for that? I think I might still prefer the $30 1.0 game. Stitch is OK, but Meridia sucks. I'm still not entirely sure how these games work though. What do they mean by "Toy Box" starter, is there some meaningful game component missing (something about a game token for the first game was mentioned before)?

 

Might see about grabbing 1.0 for $30 now, then grabbing the non-Marvel 2.0 when it's about the same price or something.

The bases are identical between versions. Figures and Power Discs from 1.0 work in 2.0.

The only that will be left behind in 1.0 is Playsets. Playsets for 1.0 will only work on the 1.0 software.

However, the Playset tokens, when placed on the base in 2.0, will unlock toys related to that Playset.
