Weird Kinect Star Wars App Now Available

The Kinect Star Wars app is now available for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile. I’ve just watched the video they’ve released to promote it but I still have no idea what it does so I’m downloading it now. I’ll see you after the trailer.


Well, do you see what it does? No, me neither, aside from inducing dangerous imperial hallucinations.

After a play with the actual application, I’ve worked it out – mostly. You connect it to your twitter account (and Facebook, if you want) and it shows your feeds there, plus the viral marketing feeds for the game itself. Tapping on the two-week old tweets from C3PO and R2-D2 that display by default, you’ll hear quotes from the game’s menus screens. There’s a way to make it show tweets like the Star Wars crawl text too, but I didn’t read the splash screen in time and now I can’t figure out how to do it.

You’ve always wanted a way to read tweets about Kinect Star Wars, haven’t you? Well, you’re in luck, I guess. Seems utterly ridiculous to me but then, I’m an old misery.

You can get the app via these handy links for iOS, Android or Windows Mobile. It’s free.



  1. This is not the app i’m looking for.

    • Nice, have a gift basket of internets

      • Actually I retract that. It’s the subheading!

    • Pointless app, that is all…

  2. I have no idea what you just said…

  3. doesn’t sound like something I want to download

  4. R.I.P.

    Star Wars 1977 – 2012

    • *1977 – 1983

      • Exactly, although let us not forget 1978 (Holiday Special!)

    • ..but Battlefront? surely it can still be 2012, hehe.

  5. Pass

  6. erm…. no thanks!

  7. The music, the sound effects… such joy.

  8. Does the app feature a Yoda-riffic Vodafone advert anywhere?

  9. Turns out Jar Jar Binks wasnt the worst thing that could happen to Star Wars after all, who’d have thought?

  10. What’s next? A Star Wars cow, so they can milk it further?
