UPDATE: Tron: Legacy viral revealed!
UPDATE - So everyone played along and scoured half the globe for these arcades and found all these items and codes and what was revealed was...a new image from the film? Yeah, that was kinda anticlimactic BUT the good news is that it was a bigger way to announce a sort of AVATAR Day type promotion coming up this weekend.
A new website was revealed at pitcell.com, which announced an "Exclusive Limited Event" in New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto and Sydney this Saturday. What exactly that is remains to be seen. It could be the new trailer (very likely) or it could be the new trailer with the added bonus of some footage from the film (possible) or it could be the Tron Guy doing a half-hour burlesque show (unlikely).
Like AVATAR Day, you'll have to sign-up online for tickets at the above web address at 4pm EST today. You need an account with FlynnLives.com so I'd suggest signing up for one now so that you don't have to do that later and can immediately start fighting the crowds and 404 errors later this afternoon...
Just a little over a week ago, a few people across the world starting receiving packages from Flynn Lives, the "company" that set up the TRON: LEGACY arcade at Comic-Con. I got a little yellow, diamond-shape. Others got orange stars and others received a blue shape. It was all leading to a site called Zero Hour that was using binary to count down. And what was it counting down to? 11am EST this morning. So what was the big reveal?
I originally thought it was counting down to the trailer but it was something even cooler than that. If you live in one of these cities - Sydney, Denver, Madrid, Paris, Boston, Washington DC, Orlando, Atlanta, Raleigh, San Diego, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, Austin, Minneapolis, Nashville, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Las Vegas, Phoenix and London - you can participate in the search to find Kevin Flynn.
Says the site: "We are deploying envoys to 27 locations around the world and we need you to meet up with the Flynn Lives contact in your area. Check the link below to find out when and where this rendezvous will take place. Then, get ready to hit the streets."
Right now only Chicago, Orlando and Paris are active but expect more to come online soon (Chicago says you need to head to Union Station and find a gamer in a "Flynn Lives" shirt...).
