The Star Wars Themed Xbox 360 that quietly went on hiatus after a splashy unveiling may be prepping for a spring release, a source tells Kotaku.

The console, which features a R2D2 inspired look and boot-up sound, is being used on the set of a popular network television show. The episode, we're told, will air in late February. Rumblings have the console itself hitting stores in April. That could also mean that Kinect Star Wars, which was also delayed, would likely be hitting in April.

Contacted last night, Microsoft officials declined to comment on the rumored April release.
