The Disney Infinity 3.0 Apple TV Starter Pack is here! Available now for purchase and pick up at any Apple Store Retail location or online! We got our hands on this new amazing starter pack and unboxed it!
This new starter pack knocks it out of the park and we seriously hope this is the direction Disney Infinity is heading in the future with wireless accessories.
We half expected the new Black Bluetooth Base to be battery powered like the PS Vita, but found the new base with a long wire similar to the bases packaged in all the other stater pack. The difference here was the cord only needed to be plugged into a usb adapter and it was powered and ready to connect. The new paint job on the base is also really nice and we hope to see this new sleek black design in future Infinity releases.
The included controller which typically retails for approximately $50.00 is a nice substantial accessory. Never having a run in with any Steelseries accessories, we didn’t know what exactly to expect, but we were expecting the worse and hoping for the best. The controller is really great and we have to say, once you start using it on your Apple TV, I doubt you’ll ever go back to the basic remote. The new controller makes surfing the Apple TV so easy and fun.
The Nimbus controller pairs quickly to the Bluetooth in the Apple TV and conveniently charges using a lightning adapter port.
There wasn’t anything particularly special about the rest of the starter pack, just the Twilight of the Republic playset, figures and web code. Overall we can say that this starter pack is absolutely worth it if you use your Apple TV anywhere near as much as we do ours.
And from the packaging we are getting a strong feeling that the Apple TV app supports all the 3.0 Playsets and will eventually have the new Force Awakens and Battlegrounds playsets available too.
