Okay, This R2-D2 Xbox 360 Is Cooler Than You'd Expect

When you open the tray and turn it on, it actually cues up sound effects.

I know, I know. An R2-D2 branded Xbox 360? I know, I know.

And yet, it looks pretty cool.

Microsoft unveiled the new Kinect Star Wars bundle at Comic-Con today. Not only does the console look like R2-D2...it comes loaded R2-D2 sound effects when the power goes on and the tray comes out.

  • The full bundle, priced at $449.99, includes:
  • Kinect Star Wars game
  • Custom R2-D2-themed Xbox 360 console with custom sounds
  • White Kinect Sensor
  • Custom C-3PO-themed Xbox 360 wireless controller
  • 320 GB Hard Drive
  • Xbox 360 Wired Headset
  • Kinect Adventures game
  • Exclusive downloadable content

I think you're allowed to geek out on this one, folks.

When in doubt about your game being good; put an ugly dress on it.

Uh...yes it does. 2nd on the list.

Someone made a "Light Saber On" joke before I could; I feel ashamed...

Posted by slowbird

I'm not even a Star Wars geek and I think it looks cool.

Posted by Maajin

Awesome! And I don't even like Star Wars that much.

Garish. Gross.

Wait, What?

Posted by JJpenguin

definite pass

Edited by Sil3n7

I like how they just name a gold controller "The C-3PO controller" as if there's some huge distinction

Posted by umdesch4

Aw man, and it used to be able to fly too, but lost that ability somewhere along the way.

Ugh...color me stupid... Must be the heat (it's over 100F in Montreal right now)

Posted by White_Silhouette

It looks really cool, but my xbox still works and can't justify getting another one.

Posted by Valder137

We need someone to sell skins of this for those of us that already HAVE a 360, i think......

Edited by Swoxx

Pretty cool. Too crazy for me though. It'd be a eyesore in my entertainment unit

Posted by wafflestomp

I really like it. Good work.

all i want is the 320 hdd, im gonna run out of space on my 250 gb hdd if they keep putting sweet ass arcade games that are almost 2 gbs each.

i'd prefer 500 gb if i could

$500 (after tax) for a 6 year old system?

No thank you, even though it looks awesome.

Posted by GaspoweR

Holy crap..i think MS has probably found a way to sell the Kinect Star Wars Game... by selling it with customized hardware. That was something I didn't expect.

Oh, okay.
 
For a second I thought this was gonna be one of those retarded Kotaku "Hey, look what this fan made!" pieces of shit.
 
You're alright for now, Klepek.

Posted by GS_Dan

The game looks absolutely awful and always has done.

Posted by Solh0und

It looks neat i guess.....

Posted by confinedbread

But does it scream instead of red ringing?

Posted by bkbroiler

Wow, I want one of these. If I got one I would just throw away the Kinect and have sex with the disc tray.

Posted by Musou

This is freaking amazing

Posted by bybeach

I'm just too old for shit like that, and am wanting a black slim. I still have my (second after repair) old white 360 with a 120 gig HDD I thought smart at the time to buy.

A 250 GB Kinect package is $400.  You get the skin, a bigger HD and Kinect Star Wars for $50 more.

SOLD!

Posted by sthusby

I want.

Posted by EXCellR8

$450? ...well i guess the big hard drive is nice. Everything else... meh

Posted by Grilledcheez

I wish I had known this was coming, I would have held off on the 360s!

Posted by Vexxan

Does it come with sound effects?

Posted by Jondan

Wow, this might actually make me cave and get a 360.. damn.

Posted by Sanj

Hah, and a gold controller beside it. That is pretty awesome.

Posted by buft

Posted by technicalta

My god I want that so bad. But I don't want to buy anything Kinect.

Edited by SkinnyBlue

Microsoft has raped my wallet enough as it is. As cool as that looks and sounds, I'll pass.

Posted by Nightlight
