Not sure if this was posted. I did not see it but Amazon is now matching the $50 credit that Target is giving in a gift card. If this was posted sorry for the double post.

I was just about to post this as I ordered one. I have some Amazon GC's and my X360's disc drive has been sucking lately. There's no more mention of the pre-order goodies but I hope they're still included.

Excellent. I emailed them saying I was going to return it if they didn't match it.

Man that is tempting. Had this preordered forever and cancelled it last week. Thinking I can get this for $300-$350 at some point down the road. All these special editions drop eventually. I am in no rush.

What so special about this xbox 360 besides the star wars theme? This thing cost more than the original xbox 360 20GB which launched in 2005 (7 years ago).:lol:

Its goes BEEP BOOP BEEP

I just bought a MW3 slim, if i would have remembered this I probably would got it and sold the kinect.

BTW I bet people are willing to pay like 80 for one of those gold controllers instead of waitiing for a retail release which will inevitably happen

Great, I tried cancelling mine this morning but it was too late as it was in the packing stage and it shipped this afternoon. I put Target GC as the reason for cancelling. I was not going to accept the shipment but I will now assuming I get the $50 credit. Thanks. Will update if I get the credit.

Update - I called Amazon and they said I would should receive the credit in two days. We also get the playable character for preordering.

I want this so bad, but it just seems like a little too much to drop right now, especially when I have a relatively-fresh Halo Reach LE console I haven't used in months, not to mention a few other Xbox's I have just lying around the house. All signs tell me that there is no reason to get this, but DAMN, the Star Wars nerd in me is saying I really need to get it.

I honestly don't see getting a better deal on this unless you can catch it on clearance at Target or maybe another retailer like WM or BB a year or so down the road. Even if you could get it for 30% at Target, with tax figured in, it would still only be about $50-60 cheaper than this Amazon deal, considering no sales tax and the $50 credit. ...And that would be a big gamble to hope you can catch one on clearance.

Maybe I'll be totally wrong, but when you factor in the Star Wars theme along with it being a limited console, I really don't think these things are going to linger on store shelves forever, unless they make a crap ton of them.

The sick thing is, I basically have to get 2 if I get 1. It would be tough for me to not open this awesome console up and have it setup in the main living room, so I would have to get a second to keep sealed; it would be a cornerstone of my SW and video game collections.

I cancelled this two weeks ago.... and just re-ordered. I was able to sell my MW2 console for $250, and got the $50 giftcard also? sweet! Thanks.



.. that $50 gift card is payment for the horribleness that Star Was Kinect is, right?

My gf wants this, but can't justify another Xbox 360 console. If its still available for the Holidays, I'm biting. If not, well i guess I was unlucky.

This is S T A R W A R S ! There's no comparison to Halo, COD, or any limited 360 console release as far as collectibility potential...no comparison.

I'm mostly interested in the R2D2 console. I wonder what those C3PO controllers will go for$$$. Those red wii controllers went for a pretty penny when that wii bundle came out. I think I can justify opening one up to use, by selling off the controller, game, my old slim, and kinect ... hmmm.

You are so right. If you look on Amazon, most of the special edition consoles seem to retain at least most of their MSRP value, if not more. I guess I could use the $50 credit towards my second console to keep sealed, and only be out $850 for two. Not to mention that I could probably bring myself to offload my Halo Reach LE console if I had this bad boy.

Those of you who are willing to orphan the console by selling the controller and kinect make me so so mad!!

I think the console is $50 overpriced but hell of cool. I just hope I'm not going to kick myself in the ass if I see these on clearance soon. At least $50 sweetens the deal and I know it would get put to good use soon.

Here is something coming out later on this year I believe to keep your xbox company.

My cousin was gonna buy this since he's in the market for a 360... then he watched some gameplay footage of Kinect Star Wars and immediately changed his mind haha.

I think it's a decent deal. I don't get why the only included one controller.

Both the MW3 console and Gears 3 Consoles were $280 at Newegg just a few months after their release (MSRP was $399 IIRC) so that's not holiding value well.


Granted yes this is star wars but it's also $450. I don't think it's exactly over price but it's priced itself out of the range of casual gamers or collectors.

Think about that ... $450 for a SE console that is nearly at the end of this generations lifespan (1-2 years tops).

I wish I knew exactly how many of these were produced but to spend $450 if you plan on using it then you're spending at least $150 more then what you could be a similar but NON SE console with kinect or if you plan on collecting it you're dropping $450 on a console that will have a newer version out in just 1-2 years.

I know there will be value in collecting these but it is a hefty investment.

You guys might want to hold off on Star Wars Kinect:



I'm pretty sure that's not an April Fool's joke either, considering it was posted March 29th... the dance names are really the worst part of it. Double Blaster, The Trash Compactor, The Speeder, and Chewie Hug?

AAAHH I just found another one, holy crap this is really terrible. Have fun folks. I'm really not sure which is worse, probably the one with Han and Lando because it's just so wrong, but yikes this is close.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'm not a staunch Star Wars purist but that is a fucking travesty.

I love a good lightsaber fight as much as the next guy (heh heh) but I'm not buying that game out of principle. Fuck YOU GEORGE LUCAS AND WHOEVER IS THE FUCKING DEVELOPER.
