Kinect Star Wars brings the Star Wars universe to life like never before. Harnessing the controller-free power of Kinect for Xbox 360, Kinect Star Wars allows fans to physically experience training as a Jedi, using the Force and battling with a Lightsaber. Using full body motions, players can live out the ultimate Star Wars fantasy, no controller required.

Podracing Mode
Previously shown content for the title includes the Jedi mode unveiled at E3; complete with Lightsaber combat and Force movement, the mode optimizes the ideal mix of gameplay feel and heroic animation through epic Jedi duels with an array of fan favorites from the Star Wars universe. The Kinect Star Wars’ Podracing game mode allows fans a chance to compete alongside the surviving racers of the Boonta Eve in recognizable pods and other unlockable vehicles native to the Star Wars universe.

    Not to flame you… but duh.  I mean, you wrote all that only to come to the genius conclusion that preference would dictate the better buy.

    Also… if you REALLY wanted to do a fair comparison as far as price, what you do is add back in the missing items to see how much  they would cost if you made each bundle have the same accessories.

    So, 
    GoW3 bundle $400 + Kinect $100 = $500
    SW bundle $450 + extra controller $50 = $500

    The bundles are EQUALLY priced… even if you add in the ‘other’ games, either way its $560 for either bundle. 

    So yes, by brilliant deduction Watson, its all a matter of personal choice.

    I’d want this but my beef is that we’re getting late in the console cycle.  Am I really going to spend $450 on a new Xbox when rumors of Windows 8 w/ Xbox is right around the corner?  When rumors of new consoles are coming in the next 2 years or so?
    If my current Xbox dies on me and I need replacement… even then I would just get the arcade edition as I already have tons of accessories.yes, I know… the hardcore SW fans and collectors and those who just want it that badly are going to dive in for it and I don’t blame them, or if you don’t own an Xbox and this would be a great time to jump in.  I have to fight the urge myself.  But $450?  Can’t do it.

      Gamestops received an official email from HQ the other day, they are not taking Reservations for this system yet, they are not sure each store will get enough.  This might be like the Halo reach 360 where each store just got 4 360s and thats it.

    Looks nice, but I won’t be getting it because I have no interest in the Kinect.
