THQ uDraw GameTablet Gives Xbox 360 and PS3 the “Wii U Experience”

The introduction of Nintendo’s Wii U[1] gaming system may have made some people wondering whether Microsoft and Sony would create their own touchscreen controllers, much like how the two companies created the Kinect[2] and PlayStation Move[3], respectively, in response to Nintendo Wii’s motion gaming. Actually, they have, but with a gaming device created by a third party.

THQ[4] comes up with the uDraw GameTablet, a slate device that would cater to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Like the Wii U controller, it has a touchscreen display that also can be used for drawing and handwriting. However, it is noticeably thinner than the Wii U counterpart mainly due to the lack of a Wiimote holder, something the two other consoles do not need.

So far, both Xbox 360 and PS3 have yet to unveil games that will support the uDraw, but the device itself features uDraw Studio and Pictionary, which are bound to leave you busy for hours. Both versions of the THQ uDraw GameTablet will be available in November for less than $100.
