  • 282 comments

Today’s giveaway is brought to you by Disney Interactive Studios. I’m giving away the new TRON: Evolution Wii video game. The TRON: Legacy movie (the geek in me can’t wait to see this movie) will hit theatres December 17th, but the video game is coming out today. TRON: Evolution video game is available for Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC (Windows 7 / Vista / XP), Nintendo DS, and Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). The game is set during the era between the two TRON movies, TRON (1982) and TRON: Legacy.

The TRON: Evolution game provides insight into the past. According to Disney Interactive Studios, the film will reference elements of the game’s story. Fans can play the game to learn more about the TRON mythology seen in the film. However, you don’t need to see the film to enjoy the game (or play the game to enjoy the movie). Of course, you’re not a geek unless you go see the new TRON: Legacy movie and play the video game. It’s geek law #1217.

I don’t own a copy of TRON: Evolution – Battle Grids yet, but here are some highlights for the Wii video game:

  • Grid Games: Play thrilling TRON inspired arcade games including Light Cycle Racing, Light Disc Battles, Light Runner Combat, and Hyperball

  1. Nope, haven’t seen it (yet!). However, I have only seen a couple movies each year since having kid :-P The list of movies to watch keeps getting longer, and longer…

  2. I saw the original and, even more so, remember playing the original video game (was that on Intellivision or Atari? I cannot recall). Thanks for the chance to win this new game.

  3. Yes! I have seen the first movie. A better question would be HOW MANY TIMES have you seen the first movie?!?! I’m really excited that Disney has done a sequel to this film with the same actors so many years later.

  4. I watched the original in the theater when I was 12. Obsessed over it for years, including blowing tons of quarters on the arcade game.

  5. Saw the first movie a while ago. Looking forward to this one as well. I also enjoyed the arcade version even if I wasn’t very good at it.

  6. Oh yes, I say the first Tron movie back in the ancient days! Man was it different from anything out there at the time! Really looking forward to the next movie!

  7. Yes, I saw the original Tron movie when it first came out (showing my age here!) and I loved it. My kids and I are ready to hit the theaters first thing when this one is released!

  8. I saw Tron when I was a kid. After the movie me and my friends pretended we were drving light cycles. I liked on FB and will tweet right now thanks

  9. yes, saw the first TRON back in the day. I’m a huge sci-fi fan and loved it. Can’t wait to see the new one to see if it stays true to form or is drawn into the “big-budget” flops.

  10. Funny you should ask; the hubby and I were talking last night about if we’d seen the first movie. Neither of us saw it at the movies, but have seen bits here and there over the years; never watching the whole thing from start to finish.

  11. I’ve seen it several times, including the theater when it first came out. I also spent many many hours playing Tron on my Intellivision.

  12. I HAVE seen the first Tron movie. I didn’t care for it the first time I saw it, because I didn’t understand it. When I saw it again (years later after being geekified) I really enjoyed it. Lots of “Oh that’s what that means!” moments.

  13. I watched the first movie with my husband (he had it on VHS!) some years ago. I have to admit, I didn’t really understand what was going on! Thank you for the giveaway.

  14. Watched the first movie back in the 80’s and loved it and the arcade game, except for the spiders, all the fricking spiders.

  15. I have seen the first Tron movie, had mixed impressions, hope the new one can step up a little bit

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway

  16. We did not see the first Tron movie, however, my husband has seen the trailers of the upcoming one and is looking forward to seeing it at the IMAX theater.

  17. Saw the first Tron a long time ago and I saw the new Tron last night at a pre-screening. I’d say the new Tron blew away the original one by far!!

  18. I LIKE you on facebook and answered your question about TRON movie on your wall. I’m victoria liester on fb.

  19. I have seen the first Tron movie, but that was a long time ago. We’ll probably rent it to watch again before the new one comes out. Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. I have seen the first Tron movie many times. I first saw it in the cinema with my Dad. Later I owned it on VHS. Now I own the movie on DVD. I’m looking forward to seeing the sequel. Thank you for the great give-away.

  21. I saw (and love) the first one and I just saw (and am currently digesting and forming an opinion – although my inkling is that I liked it 7.5/10) the new one a few days ago.

  22. I saw the First Tron movie a couple of months ago for the first time! The I saw the new one tonight. Both were really cool and different. :)

  23. Yes I’ve seen the original one, the one with the not so great graphics, but have always been a Science Fiction fan so enjoyed it.

  24. I subscribed to your blog, commented on your facebook page, left a link on mine and oh yeah want to give a goat to someone. Thanks for the chance.
