Summary: The latest iteration of THQ’s uDraw tablet promises to bring the device’s unique design to new audiences.

The uDraw tablet, which launched on the Wii last year, is making its way to the Xbox 360 and PS3 with a new design and a bunch of new features.

Motion controls, touch input, HD output, and over two-hundred points of pressure sensitivity are all making an appearance with the device’s second iteration, which has gone from a Wii shade of white to a darker, plausibly more conventional, black.

The tablet comes bundled with uDraw Studio: Instant Artist, software that offers a variety of lessons and activities as well as the ability to upload artwork to the uDraw website. The title joins a number of other uDraw-enabled games, including Pictionary: Ultimate Edition and Marvel Super Hero Squad: Comic Combat. uDraw games range from $30 for Wii versions to $40 for Xbox and PS3.

The uDraw tablet’s $80 price tag ($70 for the Wii version) makes the device a pretty compelling buy for parents looking to initiate their kids into the tablet world without breaking the bank in the process. And you have to give developer THQ credit: the device is pretty unique.
