>Cut fifteen dollars worth of content
>Drop price by five dollars.
Disney Infinity playsets (basically story mode campaigns) sell for thirtyfive bucks and come with two figures, usually the main guy and a girl that won't sell well on their own.
Now, Marvel has gotten a lot of heat from Disney Infi ity fans. They completely control the Marvel content in the game, and have made a number of questionable choices., not the leat of which is doing another Captain America figure instead of a new character.
Now, we find out that he is the ONLY figure in the 3.0 Marvel campaign. They're selling five other figures seperately, and couldn't be arsed to give someone with Cap. They got fucking greedy.
They would rather give us NOTHING than give us Scarlet Witch.
Let's list everythign wrong with this
>Multiplayer focused playset that only comes with one figure
>All other playsets come with two to promote Co-Op
>The one figure is another variation of a character already available
>Price does not reflect the difference in cut conten
>It's a repose
>Only five dollars less than any other playset despite figures being almost $15
>Need a downloaded patch to even play it
>No Winter Soldier, Quick Silver, War Machine, Lizard, Ghost Rider, or any highly requested characters
>No Scarlett Witch, Wasp, Rescue, White Tiger, She Hulk, or fucking any chicks
>Can't Co-op out of the box
>In the co-op focused playset
>Going to be selling more 2.0 characters to make more money from the same molds
I wanna emphasize this again. Scarket Witch. Captain Marvel. Wasp. Ms. Marvel. She-Hulk. Squirrel Girl. White Tiger.
They would rather give us NOTHING THAN ADD ANOTHER GIRL.
WHO THE FUCK AT MARVEL IS MAKING THESE DECISIONS AND HOW DO WE GET THEM FIRED
>WHO THE FUCK AT MARVEL IS MAKING THESE DECISIONS
>AND HOW DO WE GET THEM FIRED
You can't. The man let Marvel get bought so he could take over Disney from the inside. Perlmutter is the ultimate merchant jew.
I was worried that Disney was going to ruin Marvel when they bought them. Now I'm more worried that Marvel is ruining Disney.
>video game gimmick designed to squeeze that much more cash from chumps
>being surprised when they want to squeeze even more
This is one time where I genuinely hope theres a "no rey in monopoly" tier outrage. I really wanted Scarlet Waifu. Now I'm just gonna buy my Tayne figure and wait until 3.0 is playable on PC.
>Avalanche actually pitched the X Men as characters
>Marvel said nos
>Avalanche pitched a comics based Spiderman set
>Marvel said not unless it was based on their crappy cartoon
>Marvel ordered them to do a Cap repose
THEY CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT
They said 3.0 will be a more drawn out release than 2.0 was. It looks like they're willing to add characters and stuff post release via patches, so it looks more like 4.0 won't happen until they need to introduce something significant to the gameplay mechanics, like water or four legged characters.
That said, Disney Classics and Disney TV Shows have both been touted as ideas. They balked at more TV characters after Phineas and Agent P bombed, but fans have been clamoring for Kim Possible and Gravity Falls, Wander is apparently a really popular fan choice, and season 2 might make Star and Marco actually viable choices. JV has apparently already met with Alex Hirsch about GF content and Christy Carlson Romano about voice acting KP, so...
>needing a physical toy to awkward swap in and out a digital character for a game
>having to pay money for dlc in small installments for the price of a standalone expansion for most games
Fuck Skylanders for making this shit possible. And people are falling for it hard.
Then again, I'm not buying it.
Don't buy it.
You don't need shelves full of "collectibles".
If it makes you feel bad, don't do it.
If you enjoy spending $N oon crap, then do it.
But don't fucking whine on the internet that you have to pay more for your decorative painted piece of molded plastic.
yes they can because retards keep blaming disney because marvel can do know wrong, except you know being the whole reason umvc3 never got a patch, they never gave us a new magneto costume even though they were the ones who decided on the house of m look. They are also partly to blame for umvc3 in general because they both agreed a new disk would be better
>You guys know that the Disney Infinity team is always listening to your feedback, and we make changes along the way based on what we hear from the community. Your feedback has led to one significant change in our Play Set configuration. We heard from you that you want more choice in how you expand your Disney Infinity collections, especially with the Play Sets. With this in mind, the Marvel Battlegrounds Play Set Pack will come with the Play Set piece and one figure (Captain America – The First Avenger). Now it’s up to you to decide which other Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains you want to fight with in Marvel Battlegrounds from a selection of 25 characters and with more to join the roster soon!
Translation: This isn't a trend, but as a consolation have one of the 2.0 figures we couldn't sell.
Or Yondu. Or Iron Fist.
They're ripping people off and passing it off as customer service now.
>paying for toys to play video games
Please tell me you guys aren't this retarded
>not the leat of which is doing another Captain America figure instead of a new character.
Do they not realize it's all these Captain Americas and Iron Mans that make up the difference and actually let them sell less popular characters at all?
Its why you used to see a Wolverine in every x-men action figure wave or something.
Who are they gonna push for females? Black Widow? Scarlet Witch? please.
The Nintendo version supports Amiibo that can be played in a Wreck it Ralph campaign.
DI is really good about making characters feel different, though. Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader are completely different. Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey and regular Mickey are different, but this is literally just Cap again with his helmet off.
Don't forget that the award for getting all the characters in 3.0 is confirmed to be a keyblade.
It's a kids game. You aren't the targeted audience, manchild.
Star Wars Rebels playset.
It's unlikely they'll do any figures for Rogue One, since that's an "adult" Star Wars film.
If that's the case, they probably won't release any new Star Wars film stuff until Episode 8 in late 2017.
Wouldn't be surprised if they whip out a Rebels playset in the interim to pick up slacking Star Wars sales. $5 it will come packaged with the missing Hera figure, or one of the villains.
