Kinect Star Wars has gotten a bit of a bad rap from most who have gone hands on with it, most citing lag as a real issue, but now Microsoft has announced it is delaying the game in order to provide an extra layer of polish.
“Microsoft and LucasArts have elected to move the launch of Kinect Star Wars beyond holiday 2011 to ensure the full potential of this title is realized,” a spokesperson informed OXM. “This move applies to both the Kinect Star Wars stand-alone game and the Kinect Star Wars Limited Edition Console. We will communicate additional timing information at a later date.”
As much as I do want to play a well made, motion controlled, Star Wars game, I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I wanted to play it on a console with more tactile motion controls – like with PS Move, or Wii Motion+. I love Kinect, but I want to hold something that I can pretend is a light saber. I can’t believe that game hasn’t been made yet!
