Still can't afford it. :-( Wish I could, I'd love it so much.

Really wish I had a reason to get this other than the paint job and new sounds. :(

JUST GIVE ME A REASON, CURRENT 360.

Yeah I don't understand why it didn't. The Gears 3 and MW3 consoles both came with dual controllers. I would buy this at $400 if it came with two controllers just because at one point (I haven't checked current trends) the controller itself was sell for $100+ on eBay.

The GeOW3 and MW3 consoles didn't come with Kinect, though. 2 controllers + Kinect + game + 320GB Slim for $450 would be a heck of a deal. $400 even more so.

It's kind of why I wish it had 2 controllers.
I would have jumped on buying it by then.

I don't care. I know there are a lot of star wars and xbox fans on these threads but you're not going to convince me by listing MSRP prices for all the hardware that at MSRP or even $400 this is a good deal.

Past trends show that special edition consoles fall in price hard and fast. This may never hit the $279 price point that the gears and MW3 console hit but I would expect it to hit $349 easily. They should have released this 6 months to a year ago. As it is there is most likely going to be a big price drop at E3 which will make the $449 price point look even more silly with most likely less then two years left till the next console comes out.

Yeah, wow, that controller is still selling for around $100 on ebay recently. I gotta admit, it would look pretty cool on display with a bunch of other cool star wars stuff.

Not all of the special edition consoles drop in price, as I know the MW2 console never really dropped in price as it was somewhat limited compared to the other ones after it (SC, FFXIII) or the Slim special edition consoles. Most of them, yes, do drop in price, though it's because of oversupply more than anything else.

Since they have such a mediocre game packed in with it, that may drive it down further, though I don't think it may drop below $349 for what's packed in there.

Hmmmm.....wonder if there's any chance I could get Amazon to give me back $50 since I paid the full $450 less than a month ago....???

I want it but my current one is working fine and doesn't have all that many hours logged on it.

I have the VZW Droid 2 R2D2 phone....it would go together nicely.

What are you doing on CAG if you're willing to pay full price for gaming goods?

Yup. These things are flooding retail, and the price is just way too high for a console that has pretty much maxed out it's audience, and is fast approaching the end of it's cycle.

let the Kinect be the deciding factor. Do you already own a Kinect? Are there Kinect games you are interested in? their you don't have a Kinect and are interested in it, the Star Wars console is the way to go.

Already have a Kinect. To your point that's the main reason I'm not already in. Doubt I could get much out of mine.

I am really tempted. I love the look of this. I have neither Kinect nor a slim and have been hauling my old XBox up and down stairs between my primary gaming TV in my Bedroom and the TV in the family room that I use when I have friends over for group games like Rock Band. I was planning on waiting for a deal this year's holiday season but if this model drops any farther I will have to give in to my inner Star Wars Fangirl and buy it.

I wanted one of these really bad, but I was able to get the Gears of War 360 for $250 last year instead. If I can get one of these for under $300 I'd probably bite, but even then I might not.

They really screwed the pooch on this one. If this had released on time during last Christmas it would've done a lot better. $450 is way too much without a large title to support it, even if it does have the Star Wars branding. Releasing it when they didn't help at all either.

I ended up seeking my old 250 GB slim and Kinect for $225 on Craigslist. Originally had it on there for $250 but I agreed on $225 since the buyer was driving a fair distance.

If this bundle included 2 controllers then it would have been really worth it, but $449 is too much especially when the game is crappy and most hardcore gamers that this would appeal to probably don't want a Kinect.

The MW3 console was gone from retail stores in minutes here on launch day never to return to shelves around here, If I didn't go online to get one from newegg I wouldn't have gotten it. My retail stores are terrible about stocking new products, especially high value ones, its one shipment and that is it.
