Disney Infinity exec slams amiibo shortages

Calls shortages 'irresponsible and rude'

If you, like me, got really into collecting amiibo when they launched late last year, you have without a doubt at some point come to realize that they're really damn annoying to collect. Artificial supply constraints, limited...

Soft, movable boobs are on Metal Gear Solid V's Quiet action figure

Certainly doesn't make me soft
May 11
// Jed Whitaker
Hideo Kojima revealed an action figure for Quiet, a character from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V, that has soft pushable boobs. The boobs can be squished together...on a toy. This was the man who was going to make Silent Hills. I don't even know anymore. Boobies.

To Infinity and beyond: A chat with Disney Infinity's executive producer

Feb 05 // Jason Faulkner
Infinity had its work cut out for it as it entered the market. Skylanders had a monopoly, but Vignocchi stated that all it did was prove market opportunity. The team behind the series knew that the Disney IP, software innovation (through the Toy Box), and higher figure quality would be the key to differentiate the series, and focused on those aspects. When designing the games and figures, the designers try and follow Pixar's maxim to "make movies (games/figures) that they would want to see (play)." The most important aspect to them is, does this character "allow us to bring unique and incredible gameplay" to the series? What's going on in the world of Disney, theatrical releases and other key events, have some bearing on which characters make it to life, but if it wouldn't be fun to play them, they won't get made. I also inquired about the recently released Toy Box 2.0 app for the iPhone, I was curious as to whether a future version of the app would utilize the NFC capabilities of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus if they were unlocked by Apple. Vignocchi stated that the approach right now was to consolidate and connect the Disney Infinity series across all platforms, console, iOS, and PC. Right now the figures are unlocked on PC and iOS via a unlock code included with the figures, and did not mention plans to expand NFC capabilities to any other platform. My final question concerned a dream of mine I've had since I was a child, to go on a magical adventure with Boba Fett, The Hulk, and Mickey Mouse, and being two-thirds of the way there has haunted me for months. The first Disney Infinity release was solely Disney properties, 2.0 added Marvel to the mix. I was hoping I would get confirmation that Star Wars was part of a massive Disney Infinity 3.0 that also included favorites from original LucasArts games, so that I could finally give up on the material world beyond my Disney Infinity playsets and PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, Vignocchi stated that he had "nothing to announce at this time." But for a moment, I felt like I could sense a twinkle in his eye from across the Atlantic.
