"This September will mark the long-awaited rollout of The Force Unleashed, LucasArts' suite of Star Wars video games set between episodes III and IV. Much like Shadows of the Empire a decade ago, Unleashed is a multimedia project that will be officially entered into Star Wars canon, with novels, comics, and a whole line of action figures.
But this time around, the games are clearly the centerpiece. A version of the game will be released for every platform of significance: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PS2, PSP, and Nintendo DS. Last week, at the Lucas campus in San Francisco's Presidio, I got some extensive hands-on time with the three major versions of the game. Star Wars fans will get a solid Force Unleashed experience no matter which console they own, but if you own every game machine, there's one version that looks like a clear winner."
