Last week we reported on news of the upcoming Xbox 360 Kinect Star Wars Bundle that features an R2-themed console and a C-3PO-themed controller. While the price tag may be steep at $449.99, especially if you already have a 360, pre-orders are now available at Amazon and at other online retailers. Feel free to visit our previous post to catch up on news and links regarding the Star Wars-themed Xbox 360. The Amazon listing includes 23 images of the bundle and the following product feature descriptions:
- Xbox 360 Console: Bring the Star Wars characters you know and love into your living room with this custom R2-D2-themed Xbox 360 console with custom sounds.
- Kinect Sensor: Includes the first ever custom white sensor. Immerse yourself into the Star Wars universe with full-body gameplay. Xbox 360 Wireless Controller: Includes custom C-3PO-themed Xbox 360 Wireless Controller.
- Kinect Star Wars game: Enter the Star Wars universe like never before. Use the Force like a Jedi, become a champion Pod Racer, pilot iconic ships and much more.
- Kinect Adventures game: Get off the couch and into the game in a whole new way. You and your friends and family will jump, dodge, and kick your way through 20 pulse-pounding adventures set in exotic locations.
- 320GB Hard Drive: The largest hard drive available on Xbox 360, Xbox 360 Wired Headset, and Xbox LIVE Token for exclusive downloadable content
Note that the description from Amazon provides a little more detail on the Kinect Adventures game that will be included in the bundle. If you are unfamiliar with the game, it is not Star Wars-based. Think of it as a collection of fun mini-games that will help get you used to the Kinect motion controls. To learn more about Kinect Adventures, check out this IGN review from last November.
The Amazon listing notes a release date of December 31, 2011. Look for that date to be pushed up to coincide with the release of the Kinect Star Wars game and to best take advantage of the holiday market. More as we hear it!
