In Star Wars, the Force has the ability to move just about anything. It's a wonder then, if this fictional power that binds the galaxy together has ability to move real-world objects, like say the new Limited Edition Xbox 360 “Kinect Star Wars” console bundle?
Limited Edition console bundles have been all the rage for many years now, but while many times the manufacturers simply throw in an extra game or two and call it "Limited Edition", one look at the Kinect Star Wars bundle and you can tell it's something special.
The console bundle includes a custom designed blue and white R2-D2-themed Xbox 360 console, with many of the unique R2-D2 characteristics such as stylish air vents and quadrilateral etchings. Not only that, powering up the R2-D2 Xbox 360 is accompanied by the iconic "happy" R2-D2 beep, and the power light right is coloured blue instead of the usual green. Just as neat, opening the disc tray emits the familiar "puzzled" R2-D2 beep sequence. (Well, hopefully I'm interpreting the R2-D2 beeps correctly.)
The R2-D2 Xbox 360 console will come with a built-in 320 GB hard drive -- the largest capacity Xbox 360 model currently available.
What's more, the bundle also includes a shiny gold C-3PO-themed Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, complete with the tangled wired C-3PO "neck" mess. The controller features the transforming D-pad for better precision in fighting games, and coloured face buttons for ABXY.
It's worth noting too that the included Kinect sensor is white (and not the usual black), to keep consistent with the rest of the bundle.
For a look (and listen!) at the Limited Edition Xbox 360 Kinect Star Wars bundle, take a peek at this video put together by Joystiq.com's review editor, Richard Mitchell:
Of course, it wouldn't be a Kinect Star Wars bundle without the inclusion of game by same name. Developed by Terminal Reality (of BloodRayne fame), and published by LucasArts, Kinect Star Wars features five dynamic modes, including Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate. All modes utilize the unique Kinect motion control capabilities, allowing players to experience a range of Star Wars experiences such as weilding a lightsaber and becoming a Jedi knight or taking control of a fearsome, unchained Rancor as players wreak havoc upon Mos Eisley.
Rounding out the Kinect Star Wars Xbox 360 bundle is an Xbox 360 Wired Headset, a copy of Kinect Adventures game (yes, two games are included), and exclusive downloadable content in the form of a C-3PO unlockable for Dance Mode.
