CONFIRMED: ‘The Lone Ranger’ Playset for Disney Infinity

'The Lone Ranger' Playset for Disney InfinityJust ahead of E3, we have received confirmation of something we have been reporting for quite some time: a previously as-of-yet unannounced playset for ‘Disney Infinity,’ The Lone Ranger. Although we have been talking about the playset since before the original announcement, we last visited the possibility back in March, when the launch had been delayed until August. While most outlets focused on that its launch no longer coincided with the theatrical release of Monsters University, we also pointed out that it now releases after the theatrical debut of The Lone Ranger, which will now mean Disney Infinity will be relying on the success of the film rather than being a marketing tool for it.

Disney Infinity Play Zone by PDPWhile we expect to see and hear a lot more as E3 rolls around next month, Amazon.com and other etailers have begun listing some of the accessories by PDP that will be available for Disney Infinity at launch on August 18, 2013.

The big ticket item appears to be the Disney Infinity Play Zone (seen here), which according to etailers will be able to store up to 17 character figures and 3 playset tokens along with 20 power discs and the Disney Infinity base and software disc. Amazon is also listing a Disney Infinity Play ‘N Store which is currently lacking a product image, but it appears to be a more convenient form of the Play Zone, allowing easy storage to play conversion, featuring stackable capability for multiple Play ‘N Stores and the ability to easily slide in the Disney Infinity base for game play.

Disney Infinity Launch Pushed Beyond ‘Monsters University’ … and ‘Lone Ranger’

Disney Infinity Power Disc Blind PackEarlier this evening, the New York Times broke the news that Disney Infinity will no longer be released in June as previously announced, but has been pushed back to August 18 domestically, with a European release a couple of days later.

The move, according to the article, was one based on market and positioning, suggesting retailers were receptive to the product and offering valuable shelf space for it but wanted it closer to the holiday season.

While the article gives the impression that Disney Interactive feels the move will be better overall for its bottom line (at least come 2014), it also introduces some doubts as well.
