Kinect Star Wars (And R2 360) Delayed To 2012


Sad news for Star Wars fans with an Xbox 360, Kinect Star Wars has been delayed until next year. The announcement came from the Official Xbox Magazine in the UK, which says on their website:

“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,” a spokesperson told us. “This move applies to both the Kinect Star Wars stand-alone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. We will communicate additional timing information at a later date.”

So both the game, and that awesome R2-D2 Xbox 360 with the C-3PO controller, are delayed until some time next year. Word from Gamescom, where they were showing off the playable Rancor levels, was that the game was still very rough and buggy; so the delay isn’t too much of a surprise.
