Another New TRON Game On Live Arcade For The Xbox 360?

By TronFAQ on Monday, April 23, 2007 at 10:45 PM
Well, this is getting interesting. Now there is a rumor of another TRON title that's going to appear on the 360.

There are no other details available at this time. I'm betting Disney Interactive Studios probably isn't too happy that the public is finding out so quickly about these, before they're even announced.

From the little information that is available, it looks like the original TRON Arcade game will also be appearing on Xbox Live Arcade for the 360.

I think it would be foolish to not make these new TRON games cross-platform, and keep them Xbox 360 only. If they're really serious about going through with these, then at least fight fire with fire by enhancing them and releasing them on as many platforms as possible. Including the one where the most people are playing the originals using MAME, the PC. Make it available on Games for Windows Live. And how about the Wii, taking advantage of the Wiimotes?

April 26th UPDATE: It seems DI has confirmed that TRON and Discs of TRON are coming, in a sly way.

Thanks again to MChilds for this latest news tip.

Unfortunately, I won't be "ready" to combat Sark if he's going to appear on the Xbox 360 only. In fact, let's have a couple of polls . . . to see what platforms people want to see these games appear on, and what they expect out of the games.

December 6th, 2008 UPDATE: These polls are now closed. Please see this article for the results. Thank you to everyone who participated in the polls!

    The page itself is rather thin on detail, isn't it?

    Searching http://www.esrb.org/ratings/search.jsp gives four RELEVANT titles: TRON 2.0; Killer App; Discs; and "Tron". That last one is rating "E" and XBox 360 specific.

    If Silicon Era's supposition is correct and it's just the cheezy Snakes-like game, we'd all be better off installing Armagetron or just going back to 2.0's Cycles arenas, non?

    For whatever miniscule good it'd do, I'd second the "other platforms" request. PC. Of course, I'd also plump for Linux; what's wrong with OpenGL? It's available for Windows and Mac too... or maybe l.walker is right when he said it was some high-up decision. I'm going to stop myself before I get into an anti-Microsoft rant (man, I can't wait until my job is something that opposes Microsoft deliberately. Hopefully, another couple of months.).

    It better be multi platform. Even the the thought of a new Tron game is good, what sense would it make ti have it another Xbox exclusive?

    I think the PC games require support, oh wait that's right up thier alley. $D I hear they whip thier games up too quickly, I guess this game mode would be appropriate.

    I want more Tron FPS MP games, the rest are time wasters, IMO.
