Final Borderlands 2 DLC Packs Announced

We’re reaching the end of the line. After 18 months of consistent support covering four major expansions, two new playable characters, and a handful of small add-ons, 2K Games and Gearbox are getting ready to mark Borderlands 2 as “complete.”

IGN is reporting that two more headhunter packs are in the works. The fourth will coincide with Valentine’s Day, putting Mad Moxxi in the spotlight. Mad Moxxi and the Wedding Day Massacre, which will star the two families from the core game’s Clan War mission, is due out on February 11 for $ 2.99.

The final pack, Sir Hammerlock and the Son of Crawmerax, will be out in April. For more on Borderlands 2, check out our review.

Our Take
Kudos to Gearbox and 2K Games for continuing to support Bordlerands 2 for a year and a half. With as much support as the pair has thrown behind our second trip to Pandora, I’m eager to find out what’s in store for new generation consoles. Perhaps a new Borderlands is one of the over 10 in-development, new-generation games Take-Two mentioned on its recent earnings call.

Disney Sells Over 3 Million Infinity Starter Packs

Disney Infinity released in August of last year, and since its launch, more than 3 million starter packs have been sold. The starter pack includes three figures, the base, a power disc, and the game, and as the title implies, it offers a good point of entry for the Disney Infinity platform. That number does not cover the sales numbers related to additional figures or add-ons.

Disney Infinty appears on NPD's top games of 2013, appearing at number 10 below the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft. Every other game on the list was a sequel or a continuation of a franchise. You can see the full list here. NPD only shares an ordered list of top selling games. The 3 million starter pack sales number comes from the New York Times.

According to New York Times, Disney Infinity cost $ 100 million to develop and helped to elevate Disney's profits to $ 16 million, compared to a loss of $ 76 million a year prior.

Our Take
I don't think anyone expected anything but success for Disney Infinity when it was first announced, but it still seems to have exceeded expectations. In its ongoing battle against Skylanders, I'm curious to see if one topples the other, or if the two can live together in action figure harmony. Despite success (Skylanders Swap Force was one of December's best-selling games), at the end of the year, it seems as though Disney Infinity is slightly ahead.
