Lmfao. Not wasting my Rzone certificate on this. I won't be shocked if they Brutal Legend/Duke Nukem this and have it for $2.99.

This is taken straight from the creators page:



Seems there is a whole lot of more steps involved vs the PS3 tab. Which surprised me since I figured the 360 would be the easiest one to get working on the PC.


Ahh thanks, appreciate the info. Does sound like a bit of a pain to get the 360 version working. I'll probably use the PS3 version on the PC instead then.

Looking at the instructions, I didn't realize the PS3 version had its own USB dongle as well (while the 360 version uses the normal wireless controller frequency of the console, I guess). You'd think it could've just used Bluetooth instead on the PS3, but I suppose that makes it easier to work with if you don't already have a Bluetooth device. Too bad it doesn't seem to able to use pressure sensitivity on PC., but should be better at basic drawing tasks than a mouse would be anyway.

Isketch, here I come!

Sony doesn't allow that, hence third-party wireless controllers and arcade sticks use those inconvenient dongles.

You know how you can buy pieces of meteorite online? Buy one of these to commemorate the sinking of THQ. It's a piece of gaming history.

A piece of the Berlin Wall or the Titanic would be more analogous.

You know, those U-draw tablets might be a good way to play RTS games on PC from the couch! Think I might get one! (The PS3 one of course, so it's less of a hassle to get it to work on PC)

Another thing after watching the vid on p.42 (thanks eXiON!):

I got moto gp3 on the pc, but it's not compatible with DirectX drivers on Vista, so I can't use my logitech controller...I can only use the keyboard to control the bike, which is a nightmare, rendering the game useless to me.

But with this tablet and driver, it looks like I can assign the keyboard keys to the tablet keys and use the tablet to play the game! Am i right?!?!

What the hell - even though I never opened the PS3 one I got a year and a half ago (for $30 or $40 - d'oh!) I picked up a 360 one for $6 (well, actually 99 cents after a $5 RZ coupon I got from My Coke Rewards).

I'm still not sure why, but there you go ;).

You mean the ones from MCR?

The MCR email says this: "Be sure to use your code before it expires on 1/31/14.". Now, I'm not sure if that is just when the MCR code to get the $5 in RZ points expires - but probably it is. I think once you put them on your RZ account I think they are just like any other RZ points and stay forever (or as long as the RZ program/Best Buy still exists ;)).

The uDraw isn't a POS at all. It's a nice little tablet, and Pictionary is quite fun. THQ just overpriced it (probably unavoidable) and made way too many of them.

Well I had one of these in 1990 and it was called VideoPainter and was made by Sony oddly enough. So its a 20 year old idea that they priced the way they did and banked huge on it. I can just see the marketing guys hyping the crap out of this thing as the "next thing in gaming".

So maybe not a POS but sorely disappointing.

I've been telling people for months not to buy this because it would be cheaper. I'm not sure why people were so agitated and angry about my posts in the past but here it is, the price so many said it would never hit. It's time to buy for the folks that have been waiting.

I think people were mad at me for pointing out that they were paying more than they have to for it. Same thing with my Wii U comments and my comments that the 720 will be announced in a couple months. Oh but you're all right, I'm a fanboy....of common sense.

I bought this game for $10 for my kid, he played it once and never touched it again. I tried playing it and it's pretty hard to do. I would easily take my $10 back, wouldn't spend $6 on it either.

They took a 100 million dollar write down from them so if imagine they made 1 million for each of the HD consoles.

I think some people expect too much. Myself as well as both of my sons enjoy using the udraw. The art aspect of it is pretty neat. Lots of designs to choose from, and what kid doesn't like to color?

Because people will do what they want. I paid $10 for my sons for Christmas and it's $6 now. Oh WOW, guess I better get on a public forum and cry like a baby because I could have saved $4 :roll:

While UDraw Instant Artist isn't that amazing (but it is just 'alright'). I think I may start using this tablet as a PC mouse when sitting on the couch. It's much slower than using a traditional mouse, but for a HTPC, when you're not at a desk, it's not too bad when you only use it briefly to play media (no mouse scroll feature though).
