UPDATE: Xbox marketing man Graeme Boyd has confirmed via his Twitter feed that the Star Wars bundle will be available in Europe, though didn't volunteer a price.

ORIGINAL STORY: A limited edition Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 bundle goes on sale in the US later this year to tie in with the launch of Star Wars Kinect, Microsoft and LucasArts have announced.

The set, priced at $449.99, sees the main 320GB console unit get a R2D2 skin, while the controller gets the C3PO treatment. The 360 has custom Star Wars sounds built in for when you turn the power on or open the disc tray.

You'll also get a white Kinect sensor, a standard wired headset, a copy of Star Wars Kinect, Kinect Adventures and access to "exclusive downloadable content".

Microsoft hasn't confirmed a European release yet, but we're chasing. Amazon has started taking US pre-orders.
