This past Tuesday started out innocently enough. We were monitoring the news out of Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) when the announcement broke: As part of an agreement between Disney Interactive, Lucasfilm, and Sony, this fall will see the arrival of a special version of the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0. The limited-edition Star Wars Saga Starter Pack will offer fans the chance to play as Boba Fett, the popular bounty hunter from the Star Wars movies. It will also allow players access to a much-anticipated Disney Infinity Play Set one month before it arrives on shelves, and even more importantly—at least, for the purposes of this commentary—the deal is only available for Sony’s PlayStation system.
Today, at the Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. E3 2015 press conference, Disney Interactive, Lucasfilm, and Sony announced that Boba Fett will be joining Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition as part of a new limited edition offering. The Star Wars Saga Starter Pack for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 will allow fans to play as Boba Fett in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition through the holidays, and will also let them get the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set nearly a month before it arrives on store shelves.
Some of the characters from the popular animated TV series Star Wars Rebels are joining Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, reports Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm.

In addition, all characters are unlockable within each Star Wars Play Set.
This fall, the Star Wars universe will join Disney, Disney•Pixar, and Marvel in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, as announced by Disney Interactive. The latest edition of the video game series will include five Play Sets, new Toy Box expansion games, and fan-favorite characters from across the Walt Disney Company.
