Kinect Star Wars Is Supposed To Be A Little Better Now

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.

  • I’ll be getting this game… Becuase you get it with the new special edition R2D2 360. I’m sure the game will be traded in very quickly however

  • must admit… a few drinks, 2-player pod-racing could ensure momentary measures of fun… and possibly broken furniture from the mandatory “pushing your opponent into the bookshelve/coffee-table/other-furniture-with sharp-edges to win” situations
