GfWL will come on the disc and be installed as part of the installation process. GfWL will get installed first, then it will automatically move on to the game itself.


So GfWL is similar to Steam, but with what I'm assuming is a terrible user interface that runs through a program that's about as CPU friendly as Internet Explorer?

Ewww...

Will I even be able to launch it through Steam for the in-game interface?

It's not as bad as all that. I just personally don't like GfWL as much as Steam.

Sure. There are already games on Steam that also use GfWL.

Any chances on a Tron Legacy themed Xbox? If they don't, I hope that someone can come up with a cool mod for the casing, imagine the possibilities, incorporating an identity disc in there, glowing.

I could see someone casting a case in blue see through plastic and then masking circuit traces in it only to apply flat black paint to the case. Once the masks are removed the blue circuit lines will be visible through the paint and with some judicious lighting inside, you could get a really rad glow.

AWESOME! be cooler if the lines had an animated light so it would look like some lightcycles racing from the top view. Where is that guy that modded the Deluxe Identity Disc?

I`m just hoping that it can still be played on a dual 1.5 ghz XEON processor machine that I have at home over here. Game wise from what I have looks interesting from both the multiplayer side and from a single player standpoint from teh video``s that were shown over the net.

VROOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!

To compute or not to compute that is the question at hand. Tis nobler to compile in C++ or in TASM.

One of the sweepstakes prizes is an Xbox 360 with a Tron-themed system skin.

I wonder what the skin will look like? I have to say the more videos i see of Evolution the more excited I am about it. I've been burned by movie-based games before (looking at you Iron Man 2) but I'll have to take the plunge on this one. I love the parkour-like feel of moving around in single-player. I was a fan of Mirror's Edge (as frustrating as that game could be) and this looks even better with the inclusion of the Mag Disc.

I never, ever play mutli-player games, but I might sign up for Xbox live to try these out. I feel like Tron really lends itself to multiplayer combat.

Here's a video of the Wii Battle grids game. I don't know if it's new or not, but it was new to me and showed a brief moment of what looked like 1st person on the lightcycles! It's not a very practicle way to play (if the lightcycles in Tron 2.0 are any indication) but I really like the option.
http://www.in.com/videos/watchvideo-tron-evolution-battle-grids-wii-comiccon-2010-trailer-8882939.htmlIt also looks like there might be parts of the story mode where you walk around talking to characters? I'm not sure but it looks like it could be a slightly deeper and more interesting game than I thought (though I was interested enough to finally get a Wii just to play this game. We'd been talking about getting one for a while, but anticipating this game definitely put me over the edge. The Wii actually arrived in the mail just this morning 15 minutes before i had to leave for work. Been looking forward to trying it out all day

Also, here's a series of videos of some of various games. In particular they show the Jai-alai game from the first movie!

That looks like some sweet stuff. Thanks for the links! Although the Wii version looks very "toony," it does have the games and that's the selling point. I don't usually buy a Wii version of a game coming out for PS3/360, but this is a definate exception. Now I wonder if the Wii version will tie in with some sort of new CG animated Tron series I've heard Disney has been planning. I know it will tie in with the movie too, but the characters (toony as they may be) seem to be fully developed ones.

I'm not totally against the more cartoony look (I am getting the Wii game after all), but I hope the animated show is not in the same style. I would much prefer a more realistic look myself. It doesn't have to be photorealistic of course, I would just hope for more human proportions to the characters.
