And I am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations. And this is my counterpart R2D2. We’ve clearly been pimped out by Master George again. It was probably R2′s fault. That malfunctioning little twirp. I told him not to sell out and let us be turned into cheap gaming accessories, but he’s faulty, malfunctioning. Kept babbling on about his mission. We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life.
LucasArts and Xbox just unveiled the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Xbox 360, complete with a gold controller, white Kinect senor and R2-D2-themed Xbox. The bundle of course comes with Kinect Star Wars, but also Kinect Adventures — as if playing a Jedi will ever get old. The Star Wars theme is more than just a fancy paint job. The console will make R2′s signature beep when turned on or the optical drive tray is used.
The 320GB special edition will be available “later this year” for $449.
