Limited Edition Star Wars Xbox360 Console

Are you a Star Wars fan and need a reason to replace that RRoD’d Xbox360 you have laying in the corner collecting dust? Well, we may just have a solution for you. The new Xbox 360 Star Wars edition is expected to hit US markets later this year, or perhaps during the first quarter of 2012.
