Yesterday Disney Interactive announced the official release of Disney Infinity 3.0 for Apple TV. The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack, which includes the SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller and a black Bluetooth Disney Infinity Base, is available now at Apple retail stores nationwide.
I’m really interested in this because I don’t have a next generation gaming console. I’m not an avid gamer at all. I am however, a recent cable TV cord-cutter. I own a Roku 3 and have been looking into getting the new Apple TV. Releasing this game on Apple TV allows Disney and Star Wars to reach a much broader audience.
