First and foremost I wish to apologize for the quality of the pictures as this is the first time I am attempting an “Unboxing”. Hopefully things will get better after this one. Anyway, on with the show.
As you can see the box starts off by delivering all the goodies contained within. Now that is instant gratification!
Fanservice for any Star Wars fan is always a nice thing and the box continues to deliver.
The system sports a very nice and well detailed R2D2 paint job that no Star Wars fan could hate. You can’t tell too well by the picture but the colors are indeed spot on.
This special edition Xbox sports and fantastic white matte finish. Which is indeed a nice touch as you won’t have to worry about fingerprints all over the unit. Not that you’d be touching the full unit very often… unless you are like us who just want to hug it constantly without and rhyme or reason.
Not only do you get an Xbox 360 with a 320gb Hard Drive, Controller, Kinect Sensor and Headset, you also get a copy of Kinect Adventures and Star Wars Kinect. Both games might be mini-game collections but they still deliver plenty of fun for all ages, especially the Star Wars Kinect game.
A nice shiny gold finish (not real gold) is present on the limited edition C3-PO controller that comes with the system. It is indeed one of the newer type controllers with the twist change D-Pad. The back of the controller is a matte black with nothing special going on. The bottom side of the controller however…
As you can see the traditional C3-PO exposed wires are present on the bottom side to complete the design. Even though it is purely for aesthetics and is nothing more than a decal or sorts, it is still a nice touch to round out things.
The Kinect Sensor that comes with the unit is also white, but it is shiny, glossy finish unlike the rest of the system. It really isn’t that bad considering how often you will ever have to touch the sensor after the initial setup and placement. The sensor itself does seem to be a bit smaller than the original Kinect Sensors and seems to respond a bit better.
Inside the instruction manual packet that comes with the system is this nice littler poster. There was no need for it to be there but it is a nice little bonus for Star Wars fans.
As you can see, an extra little bonus is hidden on the upper portion of the disc tray for your enjoyment every time you open it to change games discs. It is the little things like this that make a special edition item well.. special. Now if only more things like this were given this kind of love an attention. Overall the system is very nice but it is hard sell for anyone that already has an Xbox 360 already. We now that there are some Star Wars collectors out there that will buy this unit and never take it out of the box as is the norm with Star Wars collectibles but that was not to be the case with us. The system is indeed a good purchase for any fan of Star Wars that wants to get an Xbox 360, and we recommend it as a worthy purchase. All we ask is that you take care of it, I mean it is a collectible after all.
