It isn't every day that Microsoft creates a custom Xbox 360 to go along with a videogame release. Even more rare is for them to release a custom console for a game that they are not intimately involved with. Based on this information, it was a surprise when they announced a Star Wars Kinect custom console.
The console itself is modeled after R2-D2 with a matching gold C-3PO controller. In addition, a matching Kinect sensor is included, along with a 320GB hard drive, Star Wars Kinect and Kinect Adventures. All of this for a price of only $449.
Oh, by the way, it also has custom console sounds. So, are you going to be getting one of these when it launches this fall? Let us know in the comments section. Also, good news: you can pre-order from the Microsoft Store right now!
