Kind of bummed about this. I picked up the Wii version for $10 at Walmart's Black Friday and was excited until I saw the Gamestop deal. Since I found out my parents were getting my son an XBox 360 and one of my local Gamestops had the 360 version and not the Wii version, I put one on hold. When I got there, they said someone else had already picked up my reservation. I was pretty furious with them, as my son had been wanting the Super Hero Squad uDraw game for a while, and this was my chance to get it cheap. Plus I realized it was easier to share the pictures he drew from the Xbox than it was the Wii (which I knew he would want to do for his grandparents). I went ahead and gave him the Wii version uDraw, which he was pretty excited about. He played it once and put it away, but it's mostly because he's been obsessed with his XBox and Skylanders game he got. I'm sure he would play it some more if he had it for the XBox. For $6, I would have used one of my rewards certificates to pick it up, but it's not available for shipping and not available in any stores in my area :(.

I do see the PS3 version availabe in my area. I'm debating on buying it and exchanging it elsewhere. I'm pretty sure I saw them at Walmart.

That's what I'd do in your situation.

My five and seven year old girls love the u draw and its games especially the art studio and the princess game. Too bad this didn't work out as it could have been a decent peripheral, but thq obviously put too much into it initially and only released a couple games for it on ps3 and 360. That made it easy to choose the wii version which has more games. For $6 I'll get a second as a back up in case it breaks. The cord does worry me a little.

The worst part for me is that after playing it a few times I find that for me (and my daughter) we'd rather draw on the iPad and now I'm stuck with this useless tablet.

I'm considering going the CheapyD route and throwing it in the trash.

If someone bought this for $10 could they PM it today, or you can't PM DOTD?

I figure this is worth it at the price point where a Blockbuster videogame rental was at not so many years ago. N for 1

Dollar more than my price point, but whatever. I'm getting it. It's gaming garbage, but I still want it.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I got this from BB when it was $13(ish) before xmas. Had customer service give me $3 credit earlier this month when they had it for $10. Should I still be able to price match again? Did xmas purchases have any extended matching period or anything? I'm not Silver Rewards.

I enjoyed it for what it was. For the price of a movie, I got a few hours of entertainment out of it and then sold it. I always had an interest in art so I was actually trying the art tutorials and was happy with my finished masterpieces. We played pictionary as a family a few times. My 8 yr old enjoyed it but I know he would eventually lose interest. Some of the color mazes on Pictionary are challenging.

Sold or traded everything in and got most of my money back weeks ago before the game trade in values tanked.

I think the extended holiday return policy ended yesterday. Otherwise I'd get some money back myself.

Last time Best Buy had this on sale I dropped around $50 on a uDraw and all the relevant games (Everything but like the Disney Princesses one and the Kung Fu Panda one) and it's a pretty neat little package, though I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it.

Looks like there are only 3 titles available for the PS3/360 versions of the uDraw while there are 8 or 9 uDraw titles available for the Wii...

That's a good question. Does anybody know if Pictionary for Xbox 360/PS3 supports using two controllers? Because having 2 tablets would be pretty useful for reducing how much the tablet(s) needs to be passed around.

I wouldn't even consider this if it wasn't for that free $5 RZ card they sent in the mail that expires this weekend. It's down to this or those trigger attachment things for my PS3 controller.

Holiday price matching ended January 24th at Best Buy, so you could only price match if you are inside the 30 day price match period now which it sounds like you’re not.

Not available online or my local stores, so I don't have to even ponder the idea of buying it.

I purchased the PS3 one a few months ago for the PC and the driver is iffy. Couldn't get it to work properly with photoshop.

I did buy 2 360 one's in the summer when they were like 18 bucks. Never opened the second one.

I did buy 4 for my nephews so that each could have one. So far they love it!

I'm hoping it will work as a decent couch mouse for games that are too complicated for a mouse or as a mouse like interface for combination with an xbox controller and Xpadder for games like Mass Effect, where you could use the controller for gameplay and the tablet for the menus or where a mouse would normally be needed

If these worked as decent PC tablets/mice I would think they'd be flying off the shelves. Just think of all the people who'd love something like that. I mean even for Win8 it would work wonders to make any normal monitor more like a touch screen to better use the new interface. Not even to mention people wanting it for a cheap photoshop tablet.

Well I suppose not many people know that you CAN use it on PC!

Also: Since it's emulated as a mouse, no pressure sensitivity for photoshop(at least with the drivers this guy made)

So what are the other available games for the 360 version other than the pack-in game?

Using a credit card? Watch out for the 'checkout fee'
http://money.cnn.com...f/checkout-fee/


... it will still be illegal to charge the new fee in 10 states, including New York, California and Texas.


One of the reasons I enjoy living in CA. We seem to have pretty good consumer & tenant protection laws.

$6 seems cheap enough. Looks like it could be fun for kids. Do any of the Udraw games support 2 tablets?

And many big retailers (Target and Walmart, for example) have already stated that they will not be charging a CC fee, since they can leverage lower rates with the credit companies. Target specifically said they will not be passing on costs to the customer. The companies that will most likely are the smaller retailers that don't have the ability to negotiate fees.

So the question now is to use the $5 gift certificate I have to get this for 99 cents or hope to get FFXIII-2 for $5.

I mean, I don't really want either but I have a feeling I could muck around with the tablet a little more.
