Use the Force (Cash Preferred)

Microsoft has just announced at Comic Con in San Diego that there will be a Limited Edition Xbox 360 Kinect bundle that takes its inspiration from Star Wars.

And yes it is coming to Australia.

The bundle includes:

  • The new 360 console design with a Limited Edition R2-D2 look and R2-D2 custom sounds
  • A massive 320 gig Hard Drive
  • A shiny golden Limited Edition C-3PO wireless controller
  • The Kinect sensor in pure white
  • The Star Wars Kinect game
  •  The Kinect Adventures game
  • Xbox 360 Wireless Headset
  • Exclusive DLC (downloadable content)


Australian Details

While this package will put you back US$449 in the U.S., and even though our dollar is higher than the greenback, here in Australia the price looks to be AU$599.

The console is due to release before the end of the year both here and abroad.

The Kinect Star Wars game uses the Kinect controller-free system: the player performs body movements to control vehicles like the X-Wing and Pod Racer, use hands to use the Force to lift or throw on-screen objects, swing arms for lightsaber actions, use voice commands and jump to perform on-screen leaps.

  1. Personally i think this is by far the best value-for-money buy for the xbox platform. Not only do you get a new special casing iconised with the Star Wars franchise, but you get a Kinect unit, game, special controller for a little more than the 250 gig Kinect Bundle.

    For anyone wanting to get into the platform, or those who are just hell-bent on having any type of Collectors/Limited Edition piece of kit, this one would have to be The One to get.

    I’ll seriously be looking at nabbing one of these, but it’ll have to be pre-ordered asap, as I do believe that they will be limited quantity of these compared to other units on the shelf (to a certain number of course)

    We have the Gears 3 Unit on sale around the same time as well, and I believe there’s the possibility of another high profile franchise doing a special console edition. – But nothings concrete on that game yet – yet!
