Saw it at Wallys for $19. Looks good, but I dunno. Anybody hear anything yet?

I'm not biting - I'm all about good graphics and gameplay, and the games just look like those lame cell phones games to me.

I was tempted to pick it up, especially when we first heard about it.  I thought I would grab it opening day right away, but at this point, I still haven't.  I thought it might be a cool, cheap video game, that I could take with me so my brother and our nephews could play it too.  At this point, I'm spending more than enough on figures, etc., so I'm holding off.  I haven't heard anything from anyone who has picked it up.  We got our nephew the Spider-Man one like this, and the games actually weren't too bad.  Certainly not on the level of PS2, XBox, Gamecube...but not too bad for $15-$20.

I went to Target today and they had the new R2-D2 version which also has a slot for a game key.

From what I hear it's the same game as the Vader one, just for those not sure... 

I've yet to get either since there appear to be so many.  It's one of those things I want but don't wanna pay full price for...  The game shots look ok though.

JJ...I forgot to mention that they both have the same games on them.  I checked on the packages.

The only difference other than the looks is that the R2 version has the game key slot.

I think the game are cool. but I brought the darth vader one and I don't see a slot for the game key. do I have to buy another one with the slot or will they make a key to work with the darth vader controller.

I think you'll have to pick up one of the others to use a game key with it.

I received the Darth Vader plug-n-play in the mail today from the giveaway and gave it a quick try.  The games aren't as sophisticated as say Jedi Outcast or KOTOR, but still, lots of fun little games on it.

I hadn't ever picked up the past Plug n' Play games, but my wife gave me the newer Millennium Falcon Original Trilogy one for my birthday this past weekend.  I had always been tempted to pick it up, but never ended up getting it, so it was a nice surprise.  Of course, it isn't challenging Xbox graphics, but for a fun "pick up an play" game, it is really nice.  I really enjoy it anyways, and it reminds me of the fun games I enjoyed so much as a kid.  The X-Wing game in particular is pretty fun.
