Let's raise our voice! More abilities for 1.0 Characters!

I'm just worried DI will one day go down the path of reposes after repaints after re-releases ala Skylanders. The addition of skill trees to the 1.0 characters was a HUGE thing because it meant that Disney Interactive were willing to give a little back to the fans who have already invested, without making people shell out for new versions of the figures each edition. This would be the next step in that process.

Think about those people who can't afford to buy all the new figures each and every year (myself not included). The upgrade to a character already in their collection would be amazing, not quite as good as a new figure but appreciated none the less. The main issue is that this process doesn't result in much in the way of profits for Disney. But we've seen some good will in the past. I doubt they would make less figures because of 1.0 fixes, more figures is where the money is.

There are a million things I would rather them work on then upgrading those characters moves. Just wait until 3.0 comes out and the new, new figures can do things the 2.0 ones can't. Oh dear god we will need those upgraded as well.

You are right that the answer is bogus (we would lose resources to create more 3.0 characters). They make their money on the 3.0 figures, nothing is taking away from them creating as many of them as they can. But the resources they would take away from ANOTHER aspect of the game, no thank you. Let's get this game playing great, not waste time on the old characters so they can karate chop.

@braiko:

You do realise that dedicating time and money to adding new abilities to the old characters would make them more likely to go down the route of re-releasing variant versions of them, not less, right?

Except the 3.0 characters won't be able to do things that the 2.0 characters can't.

3.0 characters will have combo systems and super moves, just like 2.0 characters. Same with 4.0 characters and 5.0 characters.

Why do you think a game company with almost endless resources to be handed by a gigantic company is in fear of "lacking resources" like its some kind of indie studio?

@Sheriff Woody sure if you live in an imaginary world where capitalism doesn't exist.

There's nothing keeping DI from making reprints of 1.0 characters with updated features besides pretending capitalism doesn't exist. :D
