Two major German shops have listed a Lightsaber peripheral for Kinect Star Wars.
The Lightsaber includes light effects but no batteries.
Amazon Germany asks €16 for the Lightsaber. Promediamax asks €15.36.
There are no images of the product, but Amazon's listing mentions a release date of 17th November, which suggests the game will go on sale in the UK on Friday, 18th November.
Does this Lightsaber, if real, undermine Microsoft's vision of a controller-free future? Could it also pave the way for more bespoke Kinect game controllers?
Peter Molyneux revealed recently that there will be no swordplay in Kinect game Fable: The Journey. He said lack of physical feedback wouldn't satisfy what our brain expects when swishing a sword. "The visuals and the sound aren't enough," he said.
Sony's rival PlayStation Move controller has rumble feedback and physical substance. It also looks remarkably like a Lightsaber hilt, albeit one with a ping-pong ball on top.
