The biggest Star Wars fans in the galaxy have been counting down to this day for quite a while now, and chances are they’re single and homeless after dropping some hefty loot that debatably should have gone to a rent/mortgage or car payment. Needless to say, that’s all irrelevant at this point, because today marks the launch of the Xbox 360 Kinect Star Wars Bundle, aka “all you will ever need…ever…if you are a fan of the Star Wars universe.”
If you’re willing to pay $449 and not expect a fully functional droid that follows you around the house, then you won’t be disappointed. The Kinect Star Wars bundle comes with a custom R2-D2 inspired 360 that makes authentic R2 sounds when powered on and includes a gold, C-3P0 controller as well as the first ever all-white Kinect. In addition to coming equipped with a 320GB hard drive, the bundle also gets you Star Wars Kinect and Kinect Adventures, but if you’re so inclined to toss your copy of Kinect Star Wars right back in the box, no one would blame you.
Any and all true Star Wars fans (if you’re paying $449 for a console, you’re probably a fan) will appreciate the cool little easter eggs that are included on the R2-D2 system. When you open the tray, you’ll hear genuine R2 beeping sounds, and inscribed on the tray is a message saying, “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” The words “Industrial Automaton” are also printed on the back near the ports.
