The recently-released figurine-powered video game Disney Infinity launched with relative success, pushing 300,000 copies of their pricey ‘starter pack’ in its first two weeks on the market. Unfortunately, Activision is trying to quell the excitement about Disney’s success, saying they sold 500,000 copies of their Skylanders Giants starter pack in its first two weeks, about 170% as many copies as Infinity.
Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg says “the best is yet to come”, citing next month’s release of Skylanders: Swap Force as reason to stay interested in the franchise.
