Star Wars games will soon be available on Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's Playstation2 consoles, the company behind the series has confirmed.
LucasArts Entertainment said it will also develop online games, based on George Lucas's Star Wars series, allowing players to compete in virtual worlds over the internet.
The company did not say when the games would be released but is hoping to cash in on the success of the current movie Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
Last December saw the release of a PC game, Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided.
The news comes as a boost for Microsoft which launched its $1bn online gamble, Xbox live, on Monday and has been forced to slash its price in response to similar moves by archrivals Sony Playstation2 and Nintendo GameCube.
