Disney is definitely betting big on this whole 3D Blu-ray stuff, as we just got word that they're preparing to release at least 15 of their films in the home 3D format, including The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, a first for both films. Other notable titles include Tron: Legacy, Tangled, Bolt, Meet The Robinsons, The Nightmare Before Christmas, G-Force, and Chicken Little. These join recent Disney 3D releases like Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol, and Step Up 3D. In addition to the 3D movie itself, the discs will also feature 3D menus and previews as well. No specific dates have been given for any of the titles.
Who knew Coke Zero would be in the forefront of gaming innovation? Last week, Coca-Cola released "the first ever location-based videogame" called LiveCycle.
LiveCyle is based on Disney's TRON: Legacy film and the premise of the game is to move around the real world real to create a Light Wall and derezz your opponents, and avoid being derezzed by theirs. The Coke Zero websites offers a trailer of the game which makes it seem like a pretty fun idea, though there is a lack of actually gameplay. Real gaming innovation or interactive advertising? You decide! Play the game and let us know in the comments!
Live Cycle is available in the iTunes stores for the low, low price of $0.00. Download it here.
This Collector's Edition TRON wired controller for the Xbox 360 represents Clu, dictator of the Tron world, and The Black Guard, Clu's elite fighting force. Features include orange light accents, performance enhancing design, and rubber grips.
Only 250 of these controllers are being made at $49.99, so expect them to sell out before the end of the month.

For anyone out there who has been longing—nay, pining—away for remixes of the stripped-down melodies that accompanied their favorite 80’s Midway/Capcom/Atari games, then 8-Bit Weapon has the cure for what ails you. The Tron Tribute EP is available for download, and the remixes are based off of the original score by Wendy Carlos for the 1982 film. The EPs samples use sounds from the following systems: Commodore 64, Nintendo NES, Nintendo Game Boy, Apple II, and Atari 2600. Beware: repeated listening may cause you to troll eBay and craigslist for your old Coleco-Vision console. For anyone born after 1985, this may be a little confusing. I know that quarters are like the nickel of the 80’s now, but 6-8 of those in your pocket used to mean 2-3 hours at the arcade… What’s an arcade? ...I hate you.
