Big recommendation on this. We already had the portal, but decided to buy the starter pack with the new portal because the new portal PLUGS INTO THE WII!!! (no more batteries!!)
I know that the XBOX version of last year's Skylanders had a USB plug, but the Wii and PS3 ones did not. We have gone crazy with batteries, even using rechargeable one is a pain because you're constantly replacing them.
hope this helps someone.
So are you saying the new portal plugs into the Wii via a cable, or there is a USB that plugs into the Wii that connects with the portal? Plugging into the Wii with a cable would be so annoying...and limit access to the portability of the portal....
Thanks for this! I grabbed a PS3 version since the Amazon BF deal doesn't say ps3. With my red card it was $49 and change. Only roughly $10 more than Amazon. Good enough deal for me. And the new portal is a usb cord to the ps3 meaning no more batteries. The cord will be annoying but it's better than using 9 batteries a week on the old portal!
And the Target only Granite Crusher is pretty neat. He's black with blue spikes/eyes/crystals. His eyes and spikes glow royal blue when he's on the portal. I definitely prefer him to the silver/green Crusher.
So, we have the xbox360 version with the portal that I got the kids for Christmas last year. Wondering if I should get this one for the xbox too or should I get it for the wii? The kids play both consoles...just don't know if there are advantages to having both games for the same console?? (I don't play the games ) Any advice?
