Star Wars Kinect delayed

To ensure its "full potential is realised".

Star Wars Kinect won't make its planned holiday 2011 release window, Microsoft has announced.

The platform holder told OXM that the game needs a little more development time before it's ready to face the public.

"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 realised," explained a spokesperson.

"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."

Eurogamer's Christian Donlan jumped into the Terminal Reality-developed effort last month.

"I'd heard horror stories about the game's inability to interpret basic movements, incidentally, but my demo, at least, held up very well," read his Star Wars Kinect preview.
