The force is strong with this Xbox 360 'Star Wars' bundle

Microsoft is releasing a Limited Edition Kinect "Star Wars" bundle with a white Kinect sensor, R2-D2 console, and C-3PO controller.


While we were less than thrilled with the Kinect Star Wars demo at E3 2011, we're pretty sure this sweet R2-D2-inspired Xbox 360 will sell.

Announced today at Comic-Con 2011, the Limited Edition Kinect Star Wars Bundle will include the custom console with a 320GB HDD, a copy of Kinect Star Wars and Kinect Adventures, a white Kinect sensor, a gold C-3PO-inspired wireless controller, a wired headset, and exclusive downloadable content.

Microsoft formally announced Kinect Star Wars at E3 2011 and demonstrated lightsaber gameplay and force movements. Our own demo netted some awkward results that left an overall stale impression, but we're still eager to see the final product--whenever that may be. The big news today along with the bundle is that podracing will also be a game mode as well.

There's no release date yet for the bundle either, but it'll go for $450. That's not a bad deal if you're starting completely from scratch.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
