uDraw Game Tablet Heading to Xbox 360 / PS3

By Tina Chubb - May 4, 2011

When the uDraw gaming peripheral first released exclusively for the Nintendo Wii console last year, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners may have felt as though they were missing out. However, it now appears that the uDraw Game Tablet is heading to Xbox 360 and PS3 after all.

According to a recent article by Fred Dutton over on the eurogamer.net website, the publisher THQ recently revealed that that uDraw add-on sold a total of 1.7 million units in the 2011 fiscal year. For that reason, they have decided to expand the brand onto the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Unfortunately we haven’t got a specific release date for the uDraw peripheral as of yet, as THQ CEO Brian Farrell simply stated that it would arrive this holiday. The uDraw Game Tablet was for the Nintendo Wii in late 2010 in the United States, and in March 2011 in Europe.

The uDraw currently boasts 4 supported titles – uDraw Studio, Dood’s Big Adventure, Pictionary and the SpongeBob SquigglePants game, which as we mentioned in a previous article, was also announced for the newly released Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming system.

You can view a trailer for the uDraw device via eurogamer.net. Do you own an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 console? If so, would you buy the uDraw Game Tablet?

    No, looks like an expensive toy made of inferior materials, and will not be supported well in the future. I am interested to see how this peripheral will fare among PS3 and 360 owners, but the software will be the driving force as to whether or not anyone wants to put any faith into this device. I have heard very little of this for the Wii, hard to believe 1.7 million units have already been sold. I'll be keeping my eyes on this one.
