Not to be out done by Toys for Bob and the Skylanders franchise, Disney Interactive Studios has revealed Disney Infinity. The game, which is scheduled for release this coming June, will take the Skylanders concept but utilize Disney and Pixar characters.

Disney Infinity will be available for nearly every platform that you can imagine: Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and 3DS. As you would expect, the whole business plan for this title revolves around additional purchases after your initial investment. After you pick up the start pack for the game, which will contain the game, three figures, and three playsets for $74.99, addicted gamers will be dropping addition cash to pick up additional character and playpack sets. Character three-packs will sell for $34.99 while single-character packs are $12.99.
