It’s all about the merchandising! LucasArts recently unveiled a custom Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 and Kinect console combo. Presented at a panel presentation at this year’s Comic-Con, the custom Xbox 360’s design is inspired by brave little droid R2-D2 and will play custom sounds. The package also includes goldenrod-friendly C-3PO designs for the controllers (check out the wires at the controller’s base!).
Priced at $449.99, the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Kinect Star Wars Bundle includes a 320GB hard drive and is available to pre-order at select retailers (we found listings at Amazon.com).
As avid Star Wars fans, the only item we’re not crazy about in the bundle is the included copy of Star Wars Kinect. You can read more in our hands-on impressions of the flail-friendly motion-control game here.
