I have a couple friends who are huge Skylanders players (they're adults, I'm an adult, no children involved here, LOL). When I told them I was getting Infinity they jumped on my case about how it copied Skylanders and I shouldn't get it because they were afraid it would kill Skylanders.
I was immediately confused by their hatred. Because I've watched them play Skylanders and never particularly had the urge to at. And don't think it looked all that similar to what I understood the concept of Infinity to be. Sure the concept of the pad and figurines is similar but gameplay is totally different!
They didn't even want to give it a chance. I hope to change their minds.
