I don’t know if we’ll see any other TRON: Legacy goodies revealed today but most of what we’ll see comes from things that were already scheduled for today.
1. TRON: Legacy Daft Punk Soundtrack
The soundtrack releases today. If you haven’t pre-ordered, here’s what you need to know.
ordering from the official TronSoundtrack site will get you either the collector’s edition or you can choose to go with an MP3-only option. The latter is cheaper if you don’t need a physical CD and aren’t jonesing for the glow in the dark (in TRON costumes) Daft Punk collectible poster.
Amazon has a deal (at least for today) where you can purchase the entire soundtrack (downloadable MP3) for $3.99.
The offer from the TronSoundtrack site gives you all MP3s mastered at 320kbps (highest possible quality). The Amazon deal has the MP3 files mastered at VBR (variable bit rate) which results in smaller file size but possible loss in audio quality. What makes the Amazon deal good besides the price? Amazon has an extra bonus track called “Sea of Simulation” and a “digital booklet” of the CD liner that you don’t get with the TronSoundtrack site’s order.
2. TRON: Evolution video game (Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows PC)
Disney Interactive Studios releases TRON: Evolution today. TRON: Evolution is an immersive 3rd person action/adventure game that pulls the player into the unique digital world of TRON. Gamers explore TRON’s cities using the free running phenomenon Parkour, navigate among unique rebel factions, and fight an epic battle against a dictator’s seemingly unstoppable army in the prequel story to the blockbuster film, TRON: Legacy.
The video game will bridge the gap in time between the original TRON movie and the TRON: Legacy movie in theaters on December 17, 2010
3. Official music video for Daft Punk’s “Derezzed”
Olivia Wilde (Quorra) cameos in the electronic duo’s official music video for the first single off the movie’s soundtrack. Lots of throwback elements to the original TRON movie with a new twist. They turned lightcycle battles into “light jousting”!
