uDraw $69.99 $9.99
Works as a Wacom tablet in the PC. No its not as professional, but still has different sensitivity levels in the pen. Think of it as an inexpensive alternative for drawing and point to click gaming.

Go Go Go! The product that bankrupted THQ. At Gamestop, Frys, Best Buy and Wallymart. These were actually reduced a couple of weeks ago and now getting scarce. Some locations are selling all the uDraw games at $9.99.

A madhouse Christmas last minute rush, I managed to find three black Wii uDraws, and one for the PS3 as kids Xmas presents. Kept one for myself just to try a different device for the Wii. Its not a Wacom, but not bad either. Best way I can do a quick description is try to write your name in script using a mouse. The pen with the drawing tablet is sooo much better for sketching on the screen. :D

I picked up an additional white Wii uDraw and then an additionl PS3 and 360 uDraw due to a Deal Of The Day at Best Buy on Jan 29th. This puts me at owning five uDraws, more then enough backups! The spare PS3 and 360 uDraws are nice backups for the PC as well.

I got the PS3 uDraw to work in a PC for Drawing and Games! :shock:

You could have put this in my price drop thread. But oh well... it's Christmas, so I forgive you :wink:

thought about nabbing this at Fred Meyers (west coast store, like Wal-Mart) when I saw it last night. They have them for all 3 consoles. Even at $10, I was just curious what I would even do with it. But I think you're right on the scarcity, I think I'll pick it up anyway.

It will go nice with my Wii "Link's Crossbow Training" and zapper that I nabbed from Wal-Mart for $10. LOL.

The Wii version seems to be the hardest to find. The black version has the better UDraw Studio Instant Artist program. Hopefully some might get returned after Christmas, I'll snag another as a belated Xmas present and a spare white panel for myself.

The drawing pad is worth the ten bucks just to try something different on the Wii such as drawing and playing games in a new way. Not a big library of UDraw games though the Dood Big Adventure game is worth getting for its 2d platforming with a different aspect in control.

We found 2 360 tablets at target for $14 on clearance. We bought one for the kids and one for our Nephew for a Christmas present. Both came with the UDraw instant artist game. I figured I would try and find a couple other games soon before they disappear, but it appears they already have.

I will probably scour ebay for the marvel super heroes and maybe the pictionary game. But for a mario paint type app, it's not bad as it is by itself. The kids like it enough.

They have a freaking ton of these locked behind the case at my local Walmart. There's no price listed anywhere near them, so that's probably why they haven't sold. I'll have to double check the prices next time I go.

Check Wallymart online, they are currently at $10.00 for white and $30.19 for the black. The black has the newer Instant Artist software and eventually might get reduced since all are being clearanced out. The store should be the same price as online, though you might have to show proof. On the plus I think Walmart will price match, Frys and Gamestop have both the white and black for $9.99.

All of the gamestops in my area were sold out of this, went into best buy and they had a stack of them with no price. Asked the guy the cost and it rang up 29.99, I asked him about price matching and showed him the price at gamestop on my phone. No questions asked, discounted it to 9.99. The guy was super cool about it too. Giving this to my little cousin who is really into drawling now, shes gonna love it.

uDraw works in PC as Wacom or games! $9.99 Frys and Best Buy

Best Buy is notorious for selling product cheaper online then in their stores. They will match their own online price ONLY if its discovered by the consumer and pointed out.

Okay now this is weird, Gamestop raised the price of the uDraw to $29.99. The uDraw is a clearance item so this seems an unusual move. Maybe the price jump was spiked by the right before Christmas sells at Gamestop? Seriously, I saw $9.99 stacks three weeks before and the last week they flew. In a twist, Best Buy now sells the uDraw for $9.99 tragged right in the store which matches Frys price. My local Walmart also has a stack of them, but only the Wii white uDraw which is hard to find is at ten bucks.

I have been updating information on the uDraw in another Thread. I recently picked up a 3rd uDraw, a PS3 version for the PC capabilities. Think of it as an inexpensive wireless Wacom tablet. I'm discovering PC games and Mame games that work very well with the pen! :idea:
