Disney Infinity 3.0 leaked? More characters revealed?

When Disney Infinity was first released, it allowed players to enter a world brimming with imagination and take control of some of their favourite Disney characters. Disney Infinity 2.0 expanded into Marvel superhero territory, but many were a bit miffed that they had to buy a brand new game to play as the likes of Spider-Man and the Hulk. At least, Disney stopped there, right? Well, not if these Disney Infinity 3.0 rumours are true.

It seems that the first wave of figures that will be compatible with the as yet unannounced Disney Infinity 3.0 have been leaked online. The images were apparently first spotted by a member of the Disney Infinity Fans forums, and later posted by the fan-site Infinity Inquirer.

The images, which originated from Chinese retailer Taobao, showed off eleven new characters that have not been seen yet; Mulan, Olaf from Frozen, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron Legacy, classic versions of Mickey and Minnie and four out of the five main cast for the upcoming Pixar film, Inside Out.

Infinity Inquirer’s post  has since been removed “at the request of Disney Interactive” and any images and references to the figures have also been removed from Taobao. You can see the original article, however, in Google Cache.

Are these images legit? Is there a third Disney Infinity on the way? Will you need to buy another game or will it be a downloadable update? What other characters could potentially be included? Until Disney make an official statement, we can only wait.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
