Not all of them are shoutouts to the 1982 original, but every last one is super nerdy. For example: did you know there's a reference to the 80s video game movie War Games? That's reference number 6
The actual numbers are in and, despite a lot of doom and gloom from box office prophesiers going in, it looks like Tron: Legacy may be a modest hit after all. Actual box office results for Friday
