Gamer’s dreams of waving their hands in front of the TV pretending to be a Jedi Knight can finally come true. Microsoft has launched a Star Wars game that is playable with its motion-controlled sensor, Kinect, in India. The game is an XBOX 360 exclusive and gamers can pick it up for Rs. 2,399.
In a statement, Microsoft said, “This new title will add to the growing popularity of the family-friendly gaming portfolio for Kinect for Xbox 360.”
In the game, gamers can wave their hands in front of the TV to use the Lightsaber (the Jedi’s preferred weapon of choice) to attack, use the force to maneuver objects and take down enemies, participate in Pod races and even make Han Solo dance in a mini-game. The game also takes players into outer space for a galactic Dog Fights. All these variations in gameplay are controlled with gestures only. Gamers do not require a physical controller to maneuver the actions on screen.
