AU Shippin' Out April 2-6: Kinect Star Wars

Lightsaber duelling comes to Xbox 360 courtesy of Kinect Star Wars.


It’s time to dust off your Kinect and stretch out your arms, because Kinect Star Wars is going to have you flailing this week. The game is set during the Star Wars prequel timeline and is divided up into five different minigames. As you'd expect, Kinect Star Wars includes a lightsaber fighting mode for all the wannabe Jedis out there. On top of that, there's podracing, dancing, and a Rampage World Tour-like section where you wreck the galaxy as a Rancor monster.

This week also brings with it a double dose of Silent Hill. If you're new to the series, you can catch up on the franchise's history with the Silent Hill HD Collection. Inside the box players will find Silent Hill 2 and 3, which have both been remastered to 720p and now support trophies and achievements. For veterans of the franchise, or those who just want to play the latest game, there's also Silent Hill Downpour.

Silent Hill Downpour follows escaped inmate Murphy Pendleton as he makes his way through the doomed town. Built on the Unreal 3 engine, this latest entry in the long-running series marks the first time that a Silent Hill game supports stereoscopic TVs.
