Kinect Star Wars Xbox 360 Bundle Release Date

Originally unveiled in July 2011 ahead of a planned November release, continued delays have seen Microsoft and Lucas Arts repeatedly push the Kinect Star Wars release back.

Available to purchase now from a selection of online and high street retailers, the Kinect Star Wars Xbox 360 bundle has been handed a £349.99 price tag, almost £100 more expensive than the standard black 250GB Xbox 360 console with Kinect peripheral.
