Microsoft has unveiled a new “Star Wars”-branded Xbox 360 – with a console body that looks like R2-D2 and a C-3PO gold colored controller – that will go on sale this holiday season.

Priced at $450, the bundle will also include a white Kinect camera and a copy of the forthcoming “Kinect Star Wars” game. The presentation is one of several tie-ins to the just starting San Diego Comic Con. The company also plans to show off a new podracing mode for the game at the show as well.

Things are going well at Microsoft’s Xbox division these days. The company, in its just released Q4 earnings, noted that the Entertainment & Devices Division saw a 30 percent jump in revenue during the quarter, a 45 percent increase over the previous year. Strong sales of the Xbox 360 and Kinect get the credit.

On the whole, Microsoft boasted quarterly revenue of $17.37 billion — up eight percent over the same period last year and setting a new record in the process. Net income came in at $5.87 billion, a 30 percent improvement over the previous year. For fiscal 2011, revenues of $69.94 billion broke another record, coming in 12 percent higher than fiscal 2010.
