There’s a rumor floating around that Microsoft is planning on releasing a R2-D2 Xbox 360 console in conjunction with the Star Wars kinect game.  Nothing has been confirmed yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this R2 console is indeed legit.  We all know Lucasfilm loves raking in the cash, and Microsoft shares that mantra, so why not go after the loyal Star Wars fan base and their deep pockets?  According to the leak, this custom 360 will be blue and white, and will also have a unique looking kinect device bundled with it.  Who knows what that could mean, but I can totally see a blue and white Xbox with R2’s eye for the power button, and maybe some custom sounds.  Stay tuned for more details as they come out.  You’ve decided that enough is enough when it comes to Xbox 360 console types…
