Star Wars Xbox 360 R2-D2 Model Announced At Comic-Con 2011

A Kinect Star Wars Xbox 360 system bundle with included R2-D2-branded system and C-3PO-branded controller were announced at Comic Con 2011. It will be released this Fall.

Geeks will fall absolutely in love when they see this new Xbox 360 in action. Not only does the bundle include the pretty awesome looking Kinect Star Wars game, where you get to swing a lightsaber with your bare hands and make force-pushing motions like you were a real life Power Ranger… ahem, I mean real life Han Solo; but you also get an Xbox 360 system that makes unique sounds! Ensuring your Xbox 360 isn’t like anyone elses!

What sounds? R2-D2 sounds of course! That’s right, boot the system up and it will look and act just like the little lovable robot that everyone wishes they had in their home. Cute sounds and all (okay so don’t expect it to walk around your house, cause it won’t. That’d be creepy and make it hard to play)

However the bundle comes at a STEEP price tag of $500 U.S. Dollars. OUCH. It’s also kind of sad that the C-3PO controller looks like it is simply a gold-colored controller with nothing else making it stand-out. Can you say “lost opportunity”?
