THQ shipped 1.2m uDraw GameTablets during the Holiday shopping season

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.

THQ Lowers Fiscal 2011 First Quarter and Full-Year Outlook Due to Low UFC Undisputed 2010 Sales

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Jun 14, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) –THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced updated guidance for its fiscal first quarter ending June 30, 2010, and its fiscal year ending March 31, 2011, reflecting lower-than-anticipated sales of UFC(R) Undisputed(TM) 2010, and the strengthening US dollar.

For the fiscal first quarter ending June 30, 2010, the company expects non-GAAP net sales to be between $155 million to $165 million, which is below the company’s previous outlook of non-GAAP net sales in the range of $190 million to $200 million. The company also expects fiscal first quarter non-GAAP loss per share in the range of $0.20 to $0.30, compared with its previous outlook of breakeven.

Based on the revised outlook for UFC Undisputed 2010, combined with the strengthening US dollar, the company now expects to report full year non-GAAP net sales in the range of $845 million to $865 million and roughly breakeven non-GAAP earnings per share for the full year.
