Microsoft has confirmed to OXM it has delayed Kinect Star Wars and the awesome R2D2-inspired limited-edition Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle.

Both titles were originally slated for release this holiday season, and no new date has been provided.

“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 told the site. “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.”

While it has already been noted that there isn’t a new date for the title, OXM seems to understand it will arrive sometime after the first of the year.

At any rate, we need to ask for something else besides that cool Xbox 360 for Christmas now.
