New Tron 2.0 film early 3D footage revealed

YOU thought Avatar was good, but you haven’t seen anything yet if this test footage of the upcoming Tron 2.0 footage is any guide.

Move over Pandora! Click through for the video.

OK, I lie, this is actually footage from the early 1980s Tron video arcade game made by Bally Midway and based on the film.

There are four mini-games in Tron – tanks, light cycles, grid bugs and defeat the MCP – rendered in increasingly unimpressive graphics which even had kids of the time (like me) yawning and looking for girls instead. However, the upright box the game was packaged in looked frickin awesome.

After the launch of the iPad, I can’t help but marvel at how far we’ve come. (while still wishing all computer games came in enormous boxes)

If you fancy a taste of computer generated awesome, click here to buy Tron on DVD.
