Kinect Star Wars and R2D2 Xbox Delayed to Next Year

If you have been anxiously waiting for the R2D2 Xbox 360/Kinect Star Wars bundle, then this news will definitely disappoint you. A spokesperson from Microsoft told OXM (Official Xbox Magazine) that the console/game bundle has been delayed to "beyond holiday 2011."

The spokesperson said, "Microsoft and LucasArts have elected to move the launch of Kinect Star Wars beyond holiday 2011 to ensure the full potential of this title is realized. This move applies to both the Kinect Star Wars standalone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. We will communicate additional timing information at a later date."

The move is most likely due to the fact that Kinect Star Wars has shown off poorly at several events including E3 and most recently, Gamescom. In reality, the delay is only upsetting because of the fact how gorgeous the R2D2 Xbox is. A further announcement on a new release date has yet to be revealed by Microsoft.
