THQ expands uDraw gaming tablet to Xbox 360, PS3

June 2, 2011

(AP) -- Video game company THQ plans to expand its artsy gaming tablet to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 later this year.

THQ Inc. said Thursday that its uDraw GameTablet will be available for the two consoles over the holidays. There's a version available already for $70. THQ is not saying how much the new versions will cost.

THQ is best known for wrestling video games and SpongeBob and other licensed titles for kids. But the company has been trying to expand its offerings - the tablet is one such effort. THQ says it has sold 1.7 million of the Wii uDraw tablets since November.

UDraw lets players paint and doodle using an attached stylus. Other games use the tablet as a controller.
