Disney Infinity delayed until August is a strategic retailer move?
Disney Infinity has been delayed, but not for the usual reasons. According to Disney Interactive co-president John Pleasants, Disney isn't delaying the game because more time is needed, they're doing it because a later date will be "more favorable" for retailers. A direct quote reads
Disney Infinity will now be releasing on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, and WiiU August 18th for North America and August 20th for Europe. So, the reason we won't be getting our hands on Infinity for an extra 2 months is so retailers and Disney can have an even better 4th quarter. Well, I kind of respect you for telling us the truth, but on the other hand, this just makes me sad.
