I love it!

I need a new 360 too, currently using my mates. Will probably get the Gears of War 3 one though at £280, 320GB console, 2 controllers and a copy of the game.

If the console made R2-D2 noises when you powered up the console or open the disk tray then I'd get it in a heartbeat.

I agree pad looks nice, but the console looks like it has some cheap stickers on it

Limited Edition Star Wars 360 Console Delayed

Originally planned to be released in time for 'holiday 2011', Microsoft have balked on that date and have pushed both of these items back into an, as yet unspecified, date in 2012. So if you were planning on getting it off Santa, you might as well change you list to something else. Less exciting news is Kinect Star Wars is also delayed along with this.

Quote
Microsoft and LucasArts have elected to move the launch of Kinect Star Wars beyond holiday 2011 to ensure the full potential of this title is realized. This move applies to both the Kinect Star Wars stand-alone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. We will communicate additional timing information at a later date.

So either they realised Kinect Star Wars was sh*t, like everyone else noticed ages ago. Especially after the recent panning it recieved. OR more likely they were scared of all the amazing games coming out 2011 and realised no one is gonna have money left to feed themselves let alone buy the awesome 360 bundled with the not so awesome controller and the aweful shovelware game ;op

I blame Rebecca Black


it seems that the reason it was delayed was because of the game (obviously), the official statement is that 'it was sh*t'

Kinect Star Wars Bundle & Game being released April 3rd

The Kinect Star Wars Bundle and Game will be released on April 3, 2012.

Here are some details from the press release:

With five dynamic modes – Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate – “Kinect Star Wars” makes it possible for Star Wars fans of all ages to delve into immersive Star Wars experiences. In addition to the previously announced Jedi, Podracing and Rancor modes, Xbox 360 and LucasArts have today unveiled new additions to the game, including:

New experiences within Jedi Destiny Mode, including:

o Space battles: As you travel the Galaxy to face an evil that threatens to undermine the fabric of the Republic, you’ll engage with forces of the Empire in intense space battles

o Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders: Pilot iconic Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders on your epic journey

o New duels: Battle opponents like Count Dooku and Darth Vader on your journey to become a Jedi

· New Duels of Fate mode, a battle-by-battle experience to sharpen your Jedi skills against the Dark Side.

· New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move “Solo style.”

Additionally, the Xbox 360 Limited Edition “Kinect Star Wars” console bundle will feature an exclusive C-3PO unlockable for Dance Mode. With these new reveals and the ability to play in 3D, “Kinect Star Wars” adds to the growing popularity of the family-friendly gaming portfolio for Kinect for Xbox 360.

Fans of the game can get a sneak preview on Saturday, February 11th at select AMC Theatre locations across the United States. In celebration of the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D on February 10th, select theatres will feature a day full of Star Wars activities, including hands-on time with “Kinect Star Wars.” For participating theater locations, please visit http://www.starwars.com/news/episode_1_amc_screenings.html.



May 4th would've been a more appropriate release date.   :)
