Kinect Star Wars Is Supposed To Be A Little Better Now

We played Kinect Star Wars a couple of times last month at E3. Our own Owen Good wasn’t impressed. Neither was Brian Crecente. I got my chance this week and shot some video to give you an extra look at the game.

Bear in mind two things as you watch the video here:

1) A LucasArts producer who was overseeing demos said that the build I was playing — which includes the E3 Jedi level and a new pod-racing mode — was updated based on E3 feedback and has reduced latency.

2) I’m considered an optimist in these parts.

Check out the video, which features some bonus slow-mo sections and even a bit of first-person Kinect gaming. This is going to be a big game this fall and it’s still being worked on. This is your look at the latest iteration, from all angles.
