Microsoft Delays Kinect Star Wars Until 2012

Posted by James Newton

Trouble afoot?

Microsoft has announced one of its biggest titles for Christmas, Kinect Star Wars, will now not make it to shelves in time for Christmas.

A spokesperson confirmed to Official Xbox Magazine that the title will now miss its 'holiday 2011' release window, though did not reveal any further information about release date. Here's the full statement:

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. 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.

Our Kinect Star Wars First Impressions weren't overly positive and the game has received negative press for its input lag, so here's hoping the delay can deliver the Star Wars experience everyone's hoping for.

Well that kinda sucks... But at least they will fix it up (hopefully) with this delay!

Well that sucks I was hoping to get the Star Wars edition console for my son for Christmas. Now I will have to think of something else.
