Kinect Star Wars gives us podracing & an amazing console

[Update: Major Nelson has posted that the console also makes R2-D2 sounds when you turn it on or open the tray. It also has "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope" inscribed on the disc tray for the first time (Thanks Rammstein)]

LucasArts revealed a podracing mode for Kinect Star Wars to let you channel your inner Anakin child -- the 10 year old one from Episode I, not the one from Episodes II and III. You'll be able to race alongside the surviving racers of the Boonta Eve Classic of 32 BBY, while flapping your arms around like Jar Jar Binks.

While that news probably won't direct the bloodflow to anyone's lower regions, this new Xbox 360 Limited Edition Kinect Star Wars Bundle might just do the trick. It comes with a sweet looking Xbox 360 that sports an R2-D2 look, white Kinect sensor, 320 GB hard drive, copies of Kinect Star Wars and Kinect Adventures, exclusive downloadable content, a C-3PO-themed controller to blame your multiplayer incompetence on, and a wired headset to do so in a British robot voice.

Too bad you won't be able to use that controller in the next Star Wars game. The price? $449.99. Ouch.
