Just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Sony and Disney Interactive have revealed the first look and additional details for their exclusive ‘Disney Infinity 2.0′ Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 as well as a PlayStation 3 bundle.
Starting this Fall, a special Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Collector’s Edition will be available at retail stores nationwide. This limited edition offering will include the Disney Infinity Starter Pack for either PlayStation®4 or PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, along with all six Avengers Play Set figures – Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America and Hulk (who will be exclusive to the set for 30 days). The Collector’s Edition will also come with a large, light-up diorama display featuring the giant Frost Beast boss from The Avengers Play Set. The base of this unique diorama features pedestals for collectors to display each of their six Avengers figures, along with a seventh pedestal for a soon to be announced character. The Collector’s Edition will retail for $179.99.
In addition to the Collector’s Edition, Sony will debut an exclusive hardware bundle for North America that includes a PlayStation 3 system, as well as the Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack that comes with Iron Man, Thor and Black Widow figures. The system will retail for $249.99 and come with a 12 GB hard drive.
The Collector’s Edition will be on display and available for pre-order at the Disney Infinity Pop-up Shop (343 4th Ave. San Diego, CA 92101) during Comic-Con and at the Marvel booth inside the San Diego Convention Center. The game will also be available for hands-on demos at both locations during the show.
UPDATE: A photo which was partially shown to us earlier last week has appeared on the official PlayStation blog featuring ‘Disney Infinity’ executive producer John Vignocchi posing with the Collector’s Edition and holding in his hand what appears to be a playable figure for Loki. Interestingly enough, Loki (and other villains) had come up earlier in a discussion between us and Vignocchi when talking about the quirk of the first generation of the game in which playables (such as Randall and Syndrome) ended up being NPCs in the play sets as well. His response was to stress the heroes in the new generation’s title.
