Disney Infinity launched yesterday on all major consoles allowing games to connect to a number of Disney universes and even create your own using the Toy Box Mode. Except, there was a problem. Gamers who bought Disney Infinity for the PlayStation 3 were greeted with a number of problems that prevented them from actually playing the game on launch date. The biggest problem came when Disney released a 1.01 patch for the game which locked up the network preventing users from connecting successfully to the game servers and even saving their data. The outcome for PS3 users was catastrophic. Users who would try to load up their saved data would encounter an error saying their data was corrupt. Trying to load Toy Box Mode would freeze the game up completely, at times crashing the console.
But there is a light at the end of the Infinite tunnel. Last Sunday night, Disney admitted to a problem with the 1.01 launch day patch that was released and recommended users delete the patch and play the game disconnected from any network. This would allow the game to run smoothly and have no more problems. The good news here is that the issue is not a hardware issue or even a game issue, but more a network issue with the patch overloading the servers.
This seems to be a quick workaround for PlayStation 3 gamers who want to play the game instantly without losing their data and crashing the game when entering Toy Box Mode. Disney is currently working on a permanent patch that will fix this problem. Disney Infinity launched Aug. 18 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
