[UPDATE] In Store Pick-up only

This is on the main page fo the TRU web site. Not sure if this is a daily deal or not.

uDraw Game Tablet with uDraw Studio: Instant Artist for Xbox 360 9.99

uDraw Game Tablet with uDraw Studio: Instant Artist for PS3 9.99

I got free shipping with my TRU credit card. Looks like more garbage to add to the house but my kid does love to draw.

I'm really tempted to do this, but I know it will get about 30 minutes of enjoyment and then a year's worth of dust.

You can use the PS3 version with a PC if you want a cheap drawing tablet. I haven't done it myself and don't know how easy it is to get up and running or how well the tablet works for PC applications. I'm not sure if anyone got the 360 version working as easily.

I'm in the same boat...I'm really trying to resist, but the CAG in me says BUY!

Can anyone recommend this?

Oh, and for additional games, Amazon has uDraw Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat for Xbox 360 for $3.99 (PS3 $12.80).

Thanks Costanza. I couldn't bite when it was $15-$20, but $10+tax was enough to draw me in.

I bought this for my son last Christmas with the extra Marvel Comic Combat game.
You want to know about dust? Xmas is 43 days away again and it still isn't opened.
My six year old son has his very own games backlog.

Every time I see it for ANY price lower than the full price I paid a year ago, I die a little inside.

I bought this as a Christmas present for one of the young ones. They haven't tried it out yet for obvious reasons, but I tested it out for a while. The only real problem I had with it was figuring out how to draw without pressing any buttons. Just be sure to tell them to press the pen to the screen slightly harder than normal and it'll work. Took me about a half hour to figure that out.

Anybody think this could cause problems with retention/burn-in on a plasma?

After trying it I do, that's why my daughter only plays it on the CRT we still have.

Thanks. Kind-of what I figured. Guess I'll hold off on this one then.

If this is easily hooked up to a PC I might bite. Have to research a bit more.

This might have been the funniest thing I've seen all day and I was looking at the presidential memes from last night earlier.

Thanks for the heads up George. I've been wanting to try one of these out forever but missed the $10 price point last time it came up. Now to start watching for the games I was interested in to come up cheap too...

That's pretty much the only reason I'm getting it. Ten-bucks for shitz & giggles so can't complain! Anyone try this on Win8 to verify it works?

Thanks OP & louiedog!

So this will be pretty much exactly like getting a Wii U, but for $10.
