Or, at least, that seems to be the general market reaction to the freshly announced Star Wars themed Xbox 360 console. The console itself is dolled up to resemble R2-D2, and the controller mimics the faithful dolt-of-a-robot C-3P0.
It was announced today at Comic-Con, a very fitting location.
Also shown off was a new ‘pod-racing mode’ for the Kinect that will feature greatly in future Star Wars related titles for the 360. The Star Wars Xbox 360 is being sold as a bundle, and will include as part of it a white Kinect, something that is new for the market.
And now, because I know what you really want, here is what the beast looks like (images via Gizmodo):
Sexy, yeah? This is what the bundle contains, via Major Nelson:

Custom R2-D2-themed Xbox 360 Console with custom sounds (Hear them (MP3) – > Power on and Tray eject)
White Kinect Sensor
Custom C-3PO-themed Xbox 360 Wireless Controller
320 GB Hard Drive
Xbox 360 Wired Headset

The whole mess will set you back $449.99. You can preorder the bundle here, but it won’t ship until this holiday season. You know you want one.
