Video game publisher THQ hopes to draw in artistically inclined fans when it launches its uDraw GameTablet for the Wii this year.

The $70 add-on accessory to Nintendo Co.'s popular game console is aimed mainly at 6- to 12-year-olds. Players will be able to make drawing and sketches, or play games such as "Pictionary."

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter says he's surprised Nintendo didn't come out with one on its own. With no marketing, he believes THQ Inc. will be able to sell at least 1 million tablets.

The GameTablet is 9 inches wide and 7 inches long. To use it, you pop in the Wii's controller, which also powers the gadget, and use an attached stylus pen to create pictures or play games.
