Quoted from snaroff:

TRON is a masterpiece...no need for an LCD and the scoring & rules are awesome. I recently picked up an LE and have owned a Pro for many years.
Stern did 3 runs IIRC. Not difficult to find Pro's or LE's, so a Vault is just a way for someone to get a NIB pin (which is just silly). Plenty of great examples in the market today. If you want a TRON, it's not difficult to find one! PLEASE.

Masterpiece - no. Very straight forward that results in you playing the same way each time.

Amazing game that is one of sterns best - definitely.

I think the vault brings the inflated used market back to reality which people would like.

Quoted from snaroff:

If you agree TRON is amazing and one of Sterns best...I don't see why it's not a (Stern) masterpiece. There are many ways to play it.
People looking to flood the market with games that *have already been re-run multiple times* are short-sighted and naive about the long-term effects. Don't get me wrong, some games are worthy of being vaulted, however LOTR and TRON are not in short supply. Again, I recently picked up a TRON LE at a fair/reasonable price (considering heavily modded Pro's are going for 7-8k). If Stern did a nice TRON vault, it would sell for 7-8k. Don't see the price savings. In most cases, the sellers aren't making much money...the TRON mods are costly (easy to spend 2k).

yeah that's a good point. Stern wouldn't release vault for under 7 at this point.

Quoted from Blacksun:

I would rather see Simpsons or LOTR...

Just curious.... Why Simpsons? Easily obtainable, price is still very reasonable, etc

Quoted from fattdirk:

I just don't get what Stern is waiting for. They vaulted Star Trek when noone was asking for it. People are begging for Tron.

disney license I would think. Disney wants too much?

I still don't understand the Tron pricing game. The vault comes out, it's going to be priced higher than a pro otherwise Stern has decided to sell a bare bone release of Tron and guys will spend 1-2k modding them.

With that pricing, aren't we back at where a nice Tron pro is now? Where does the plummet really happen?

Even better question on the LE - Stern would never vault a game that incorporates code from LE - they confirmed this when vaults became a reality. I'm not sure if they would take features like the El wires from it either. Therefore I really don't see any impact at all on the LE.

Maybe I'm missing something?

Quoted from BoJo:

They exist. My LE is bone stock with the exception of cliffys. Has less then 100 plays and still has the original code since it's spent most of its life in storage. I have mods for it but haven't installed them yet so technically it's unmoded (for now).

But why? Seems like you're just keeping it in a time capsule instead of playing it. That's some extreme discipline.

Quoted from snaroff:

I currently own a heavily modded Pro and an LE. Love the LE features, but my modded Pro is just as good (and I'm not "full of it".
Important to note that "modded Pro's" aren't all equal...depends who is doing the modding. For example, my Pro has gorgeous Mike Chestnut chromed armor & apron which is arguably nicer than what the LE has (just to take one example).
I do agree that many modded Pro's aren't as good as the LE...depends on the situation.[quoted image]

That's a gorgeous example of a Tron pro ; )

owned both LE and pro - LE is nice but not worth it. And I didn't install those ramps - although people have too much time on their hands to circle another guys ramp lights.

That pro he has is gorgeous and I would take over an LE any day of the week (plus the cash of course). Missed that gem bank shot off the targets.

LE owners - be happy too - it's a great game and one of stern's true LEs. Win win people.
