In addition to the previously announced Jedi, Podracing and Rancor modes, Xbox 360 and LucasArts have today unveiled new additions to the game, including:

- Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders: Pilot iconic Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders on your epic journey
- New duels: Battle opponents like Count Dooku and Darth Vader on your journey to become a Jedi
- New Duels of Fate mode, a battle-by-battle experience to sharpen your Jedi skills against the Dark Side.
- New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move "Solo style."
"With these new reveals and the ability to play in 3D, "Kinect Star Wars" adds to the growing popularity of the family-friendly gaming portfolio for Kinect for Xbox 360," Microsoft added.

Also, Alex Garden, GM of Xbox LIVE, issued a letter to Xbox LIVE community about the security stating:
"Security is an ongoing battle. No matter how well we work to improve security - and we are working every day to bring new forms of protection to Xbox LIVE - our work will never end. With every measure we put in place, ill-intentioned people will create new ways to attack online services.
That's why I believe it's more important than ever that our members are armed with information and security tools to actively partner with us in this war on fraud. We have a dedicated web page at http://xbox.com/security detailing all the steps you can take today to help protect your account.
What you'll see here is the most common sources of attack continue to involve:
- social engineering to gather information about the user to guess the password
- phishing, whereby the user types the account password into an illegitimate website that is pretending to be something else
- malicious software on the computer that has captured the password
- or, using the same password from another online service that has been breached.
