Unfortunately it's my understanding that the Wii's online shop wasn't capable of similar download functionality. Too bad.
Overall Infinity is something of a mixed bag to me. The Power Disc implementation is severely lacking. Of all the discs that are out now, my kids are only interested in maybe 8-10. Others just sit in the folder and will rarely get any use.
Characters which can only be used in the Toy Box mode are pretty much worthless. I understand why designers wanted to limit each playset to just its native characters, but there's not a whole lot to do with figures who don't have a playset. My kids got Ralph and Vanelope for Christmas. After 10 minutes of running around in Toy Box mode, the novelty had worn off.
If they make a Disney Infinity 2, I hope there is at least one playset where EVERY character can be used. The setting doesn't really matter.
I also hope they make all of the current figures backward-compatible with an Infinity 2 game. Skylanders does this.
Honestly I'll be very, very surprised if there isn't a follow-up game. There were reports that Disney spent $100 million developing Infinity. And most of the work is already behind them. In order to make Infinity 2, they can re-use the same base game engine. Just need to apply a few tweaks and build new Playsets.
Most of my local stores (TRU, Walmart, Target) saw their Infinity stock dwindling throughout the holiday season.
But again, I hope they reward folks who spent literally hundreds of dollars on Infinity 1 by allowing most--if not all--of the discs and figures to be used in an Infinity 2.
