THQ announced in their Q3 earnings report that the company shipped 1.2 million uDraw GameTablets for the Wii in North America. It’s often hard to peg exactly how many of these “shipped” units were sold to customers, but THQ gave us a hint back in December when they stated that they were seeing a “very significant sell-through” for uDraw.
Looking to extend this sales streak, THQ announced that they will launch the uDraw GameTablet internationally during their March quarter.
