Star Wars Kinect was always intended to be a new take on gaming in the sci-fi franchise, but now it's going to bring with it a new take on the Xbox 360 hardware. At a Star Wars Kinect panel at Comic-Con today, Microsoft and LucasArts revealed a new Kinect Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 console set for release this fall.
The bundle will include a 320GB Xbox 360 console with an R2-D2 theme, a metallic C-3PO controller, a white Kinect sensor, and a copy of the game for $450. For comparison, the current 250GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle with Kinect Adventures sells for $400.
Originally announced at E3 2010, Kinect Star Wars is set primarily during the time of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, with overlapping bits of the other prequel trilogy films and nods to the original Star Wars trilogy as well. Players will take orders from Yoda, cleave their way through armies of battle droids, and use Kinect-enabled Force powers to battle the Dark Side.
