Gawd... :(

That's Disney on me hit list now... :flak:

(wonder if all their old miggies that they bought back in the 90's have broken down... they could've bought some nice ones on eBay recently... cheap at twice the price)... :)

Now where'd I leave that Mickey Mouse trap... :D

Does that mean there will be a DisneyScotland.com website in the works?

Franko still has Disney aspirations. He's still waiting for a princess to come along and kiss him so she can turn him from a frog into a prince.

As I stated in this thread: http://amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?t=57148 it could have been announced at a better date then today, but this is no April Fool's gag.  When Red and I were at Barry's house for a meeting a couple of months ago, Barry put on speaker phone his conversation with a major Disney rep about advertising schedules for the Tron release. Barry offered the Disney contract for our review as proof.

Unfortunaly, as much as many of us want to get excited about such a thing, you are really not going to get anyone to really believe it today.  Everyone will be couching their comments with "if this is true".  First thing tomorrrow, I for one will believe you.  Today?  It is all speculation.

The intereting thing will be to see how many people still doubt it if the story is the same tomorrow.  Even more interesting will be to see where things go on the 5th.  It would take some pretty big self denial to continue to doubt that CUSA is for real if they get ads in a disney release.

Well... I knew that something Tron related was coming for a few days beacuse Barry sent me some material that, let's just say, hints in that way :)

then, you also have a message by eliyahu on awn.net saying that he and barry discussed this deal as far as last year in e-mails.

On top of that, several mods on C-A.org knew about this for some time also.

Yes, it was posted today, probably deliberately on Barry's part :), but it is true.

I have also been informed and have seen their webstore, including prices on the hardware.

It is happening as outlined in their PR.:)

Always thought Commodore was a Mickey Mouse operation.

Yes, this is the crucial point about Commodore USA.  They can use the Commodore name, they can use the Amiga name, but it's all a sham.
