Disney Infinity 3.0 hasn’t even been announced yet but character names and images have appeared online. Apparently coming from Chinese retailer Taobao, they were posted to Infinity Inquirer but has since been taken down at the request of Disney Interactive, but not before someone could snatch the images!
Characters revealed were classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Mulan, Olaf from Frozen, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron, and five characters from the upcoming Pixar movie Inside Out. It’s also likely that Disney Infinity 3.0 will feature Star Wars figures given the release of the new film this Christmas. Even if you’re not a fan of the game, the figures make for pretty cool collectibles. I’d love to get my hands on Chewie and Han Solo figures!

Tilmen from Nintendomination has uploaded a comparison video comparing the well-received Xbox 360 version of Bayonetta to the recently released Wii U version in Japan. The edge could go to the Xbox 360 version, but I will let you make up your own minds. Which version do you think looks the best?
Analytics firm Nielson has produced a new report that suggests that one-third of PlayStation 4 owners switched from the original Wii console and the Xbox 360. The survey was conducted by 1,200 active gamers from North America aged 7 to 54. The flaw in the survey was that participants were asked which console they currently owned at the time of the survey, not what they had owned in the past. This means that those who sold their PlayStation 3 or Wii would have been listed as non console owners. We already heard earlier this week that Sony were surprised at the success of the PlayStation 4 and were undecided why it’s been such a run away success.
Today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew is coming on November 11th to Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, in addition to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Named “Best Racing Game” of E3 2014 by the Game Critics, The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving MMO that takes gamers on a wild ride throughout a massive open world recreation of the United States, full with exciting challenges and populated by other real players.
“It’s Ubisoft’s objective to continue to meet the needs of consumers who have not yet made the move to the new console generation,” said Geoffroy Sardin, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “The Crew was originally built for the new generation of consoles, but we have always had a desire to make it accessible to as many people as possible. We’re excited to bring The Crew’s same core features, massive scope, mission variety, and overall driving experience to Xbox 360 players.”
Asobo Studio is leading development of The Crew for Xbox 360 with support from the teams at Ivory Tower, Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Shanghai. Ubisoft announced that after the closed beta on PC that took place in July and will resume again on August 25th, a limited number of players will be invited to participate in a closed beta for Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 starting in late September. Exact dates and further details on this closed beta period will be communicated at a later time.
GFK Chart-Track has revealed that the Xbox 360 was this generations best-selling console in the United Kingdom. The Xbox 360 is expected to overtake the Wii in a matter of days. GFK says that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is regularly outselling all its rivals, and has now shifted 8.4m consoles in the UK. However, the PlayStation 2 remains the best-selling console of all-time.
“This is an historic milestone and our sincere thanks goes to each and every person that has bought and enjoyed Xbox 360 over the past eight years.”
– Director of Xbox and entertainment Harvey Eagle
Injustice: Gods Among Us launched yesterday in North America on Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A free-to-play iOS version of the fighting game was released on April 3rd, and players who download it will be able to unlock content for two of the three home console versions. According to Siliconera, although it includes unique features like off-TV play, the Wii U version of Injustice: Gods Among Us doesn’t support the unlocking of content via the game’s iOS variation.
