"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. 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."
The delivery date now says early January 2013 - or is this an Amazon mistype! I actually preordered it November 2010 so it could be my longest preorder that Amazon hasn't cancelled. (Scott Lynch's The Republic of Thieves gets added, I order & then they cancel, it's a very long saga which has been ongoing for over 2 years).
That is a place holding for amazon. The new date has not been announced but rumor is early april. There is a rumor it will come out in Feb to come out with rerelease of movie at the theaters. But that seems unlikely now.
This really sucks. I was going to get this for the kids for Christmas and was thinking it would be a late arrival. Well... April or even worse, next Christmas is way to far out to keep that idea going. Oh well, no need for the pre-order. When it finally comes out, guess we will entertain getting it again.
I canceled my pre-order Jan 1st. If they have delayed so many times it usually indicates major issues and pre-reviews weren't that great. I'm not interested in spending $50 to be their guinea pig on a game that they have had so many issues with. I'll wait and see what happens when it launches and others have purchased it. Once I've seen a decent amount of reviews from real users, then I'll consider it.
I'd rather they take their time and get it right. There have been too many games rushed to market and flopped that once had potential. It will be fun whenever it gets here since Star Wars never gets old.
