uDraw Heads To Playstation 3 And Xbox 360

THQ Nordic Xbox 360 Sony Playstation 3 Microsoft News Casual

THQ had release the uDraw tablet for the Wii back in November 2010. It is basically a gaming tablet with a pressurized stylus and, in combination with the Wii Remote, can be used for motion control. Instead of keeping it a Wii exclusive, however, THQ has announced that the tablet will be heading for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360, due out sometime in 2011.

Vice President of THQ Asia Pacific, Rodney Block, had this to say about the expansion of the uDraw tablet on other consoles:

“Xbox 360 and PS3 fans have been asking for uDraw and after such an overwhelming response from Wii players, it’s with great excitement that we launch uDraw HD. There’s no console based artistic tool like it, uDraw can be used to create pieces of art, keep minds active and play games. Fostering creative expression, the uDraw for HD consoles can be enjoyed by the whole family, encouraging them to spend quality time together”.

Alongside the bundled software uDraw Studio Instant Artist, THQ has revealed two more games for the tablet that will be released this year: Pictionary: Ultimate Edition and Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat. THQ promises more games for the tablet in 2012.

I guess those who wanted this tablet and didn’t have or want a Wii would be excited about this announcement, but I do seriously doubt that it was in high demand from all types of gamers, especially one group of gamers. At least they decided to expand.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    I think it will be pretty cool. Though I already have a tablet for the computer and photoshop, so I doubt I will get much use out of this (if I even get it).

    But I am interested in checking this out. They had a display when I went into GameStop the other week and they had some games that looked like digital coloring books. Which would be a really cool way to get kids used to drawing with a tablet, and introduce them to digital art. So it’s cool in that aspect as well.
