Microsoft Releases Star Wars Kinect Comedy Short

Posted on January 26, 2012 AT 10:34am

THE BUZZ: Microsoft has released a new promotional video for Star Wars: Kinect.

EGM’s TAKE: The video is a comedic take on the classic duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and starring Chris Pratt who “becomes more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” The scene is pretty well done and sums up exactly what we’d all be like if we were given a real lightsaber, except for the severed limbs. The sad part is that this is what we all want from a Star Wars Kinect game, not what Star Wars: Kinect actually delivers. Maybe one day our dreams will come true.

What do you think of the video? Leave your thoughts below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
