I may have to get this for the new Star Wars office! ;D

All homes should have an XBox on every TV in the house.

THIS may get me to finally buy an X-Box 360.  Very cool.

I don't really like the controller, but I surprisingly really like that console... too bad I bought a brand new Xbox just a few months ago.   :-\

Yeah I sort of wish I had held otu too Rob, and I would've had a lot longer to hold out.  Would've been worth it though.

Yeah, that's really cool.  I've thought about an Xbox for a while but never bought one, this could change that.  I like the idea of the c-3po controller, but I'd probably put it up and just get a regular controller to actually play with.

Cool looking console but I think that Kinect game is going to flop big time

I bet you'd get at least $75-100 for that controller alone if you were to throw it up on eBay.  And probably not to even a SW nerd--just someone who wanted it for that sweet-ass bling-bling paintjob.

My son has been begging me to get him an XBox... mind you we already have a Wii and a PS3 so I've resisted.  This particular XBox is so cool looking that I'm tempted...

I haven't even looked into the Kinect game, but I'm betting you aren't wrong.  However, there are so many other excellent game for the Xbox that I don't really care.

Well when you look at what you get for the price, you get the game and more storage for free.

Star Wars Kinect has been pushed to 2012.

Kinect Star Wars & Ltd Edition Console Delayed
You better rewrite that shopping list for Santa Claus

Written by DavieMarshall today at 16:08

Please don't shoot the messenger folks, but yes you have read that title and strap-line correctly. The long awaited Kinect Star Wars and that lovely looking Star Wars themed Xbox 360 has suffered a delay at Microsoft's jurisdiction.

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. Speaking to OXM a Microsoft spokesperson gave the following statement:

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.


An absolute blow and a major disappointment for many, it is suggested/rumoured that extra time is needed to fine-tune the title, specifically addressing issues with lagging and flaky controls. More news on the new release date as it becomes available.

Judging by Twitter they don't have enough people around to make it.  :-X

FYI - Castle Crashers has a free download in the downloadable content in game for a free pink knight download.  Not only do you get a free download, but for every download a dollar is donated to support boobies and it looks like you get 2 new avatar items of some sort - I didnt look at those.
