What you see here is an R2-D2 inspired Xbox 360, along with a C-3PO Xbox 360 controller, and you'll find these as part of the Star Wars Kinect bundle that was revealed by Microsoft at Comic-Con. Also included in the bundle is a white Kinect sensor, Star Wars Kinect, and Kinect Adventures. The console also includes a 320 GB hard drive, which is a first for the Xbox 360 line. The console itself has custom R2-D2 sounds rather than the standard Xbox 360 chimes. You can pre-order these now, and they'll be shipping in the fall for $449.

At a height of 4.75-inches, you simply twist the licensed gadget’s head and freshly ground pepper comes out his, um, bottom (peppercorns not included.) Made in Japan and available for $19.99, we can’t wait until they come up with a C-3PO salt shaker and Yoda sugar dispenser.
