"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."

I'm disappointed in the delay, but I'm glad they're still working on making it a better game. I don't think I can handle any more whining from Star Wars "fans" about another sub-par Star Wars game.

Thankfully. This game looks like a pile of sloppy crap. Hopefully they revamp the entire game so it works, and maybe do away with the Nintendo Power retro cover.

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).

What's the deal? It says December 31st release date, I clicked pre-order and I got a delivery date of about 5 days later. Has something changed again?

December 31st, 2012.

Oh wow, I was about to order this game thinking Dec 31st, 2011 and then saw the comment on 2012. Very, very sad they pushed it out an entire year

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.

April?! Might be time to cancel my pre-order.

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 just spoke with Xbox customer service and they say there is no date yet but the rep says that the Amazon dates are basically placeholders and is thinking that it will be before June.

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 am so frustrated. The item still states Jan 2012 as a release date and yet once you order and you get the confirmation email, it says 2013!!! They need to change the advertised date it's deceptive!

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.

A new preview video on XBox Live last week (the one where Artoo is in the studio) indicated the game will come out in the next 3 months. April...May...?

Looks like June2012 will be the release time zone because of the 'new' XBox 360 console, all touted up in SW style:
Xbox 360 Limited Edition Kinect Star Wars Bundle

And I'm certainly not ordering this, my XBox 360 works perfectly well just as it is!

HURRAY! April works great for me because I have a birthday in it!

Hopefully it's delayed forever... game looks HORRIBLE.

The game doesn't look horrible for a kinect game if it was a regular controller game i would agree
