Hot on the heels of learning the "Teen" ESRB rating and the inclusion of dancing mini-games in Kinect Star Wars, Kotaku reports about possible release date information on the Star Wars-themed Xbox 360. Both were originally slated to be released together so one would think that the release date rumors for the new 360 would naturally apply to Kinect Star Wars as well. Here's what Kotaku is reporting:
- Possible April release for the Star Wars Xbox 360
- The console was apparently seen on the set of a "popular network television show." The show is not named, but considering that a number of shows are filming their spring episodes now, the timing makes sense for promotion.
At this point Microsoft has no comment on the rumors. Click here for the source article which shows a close up picture of the Star Wars-themed console on the set of the unnamed television show. Remember, until we hear something official, all of this is considered to be in the rumor category. We'll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more!
