Disney Infinity 'Toy Story Space' PlaysetWhether it was intentional or not, the release of a new ‘Disney Infinity’ featurette titled ‘Creating Disney Infinity: Play Sets’ has officially confirmed our previous reports that ‘Toy Story Space’ does in fact appear to be an upcoming playset for the ‘Disney Infinity’ gaming platform.

The video also features minor clips from ‘Phineas and Ferb’ which we also believed to be an upcoming playset but are unclear if it had ever officially been announced as such (characters such as Phineas and Agent P have often been touted as playable characters in previous promotional videos).

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.
