Were you excited at the prospect of being able to get your hands on the Star Wars R2-D2 edition Xbox 360 as a Christmas present for yourself or a loved one? The bad news is that it appears that the Star Wars inspired gaming console has been delayed to possibly next year.
The delay has been confirmed by a Microsoft spokesperson, but perhaps the reason behind the delay may be able to appease some fans. According to Microsoft, the delay was brought about due to the company who felt that the Star Wars Kinect game was not as polished as Microsoft and LucasArts had hoped.
While this may be bad news for those who were looking forward to seeing the game bundle wrapped up nicely under their Christmas tree, we’re guessing that they may have been more disappointed with a rushed game that was felt incomplete or was full of bugs. Unfortunately it was not mentioned as to when exactly in 2012 fans could expect to get their hands on the Star Wars edition Xbox 360.
For those who forgot, the Star Wars edition Xbox 360 includes a 320GB R2-D2 themed console with custom sounds and a white Kinect sensor. It will also come with a C-3PO theme controller, a wired headset and a copy of Kinect Star Wars with access to exclusive content, along with a copy of Kinect Adventures. The bundle is expected to retail for $450.
