With Skylanders facing a big rival product for the first time this year in Disney Infinity, how will the products compete with one another and what does this mean for toy industry?

"It will be interesting to see how this year pans out for both products, and whether Activision will tailor its plans to take account of the new competition," said GamePeople, GeekDad and Family Gamer TV editor Andy Robertson.

"There could well be space for both these games at retail, only time will tell. 

"Snagging the best deal with retailers, both for space and exclusives, will contribute heavily to how well Skylanders Swap Force and Disney Infinity do."
