    It actually looks like a interesting peripheral.
    I like it!

    I'm not sure they'll be any games that put it to good use, though.

    could be awsome or just used for shovelware and ds ports, it would be perfect for Kirby epic yarn though

    If you could use bluetooth to use it on a PC as well, than it may be worth checking out.

    Hmmm, the problem here is that gimmick will mostly be use on shovelware. Games can benefit from this, it just that the creativity has to show from the gameplay and not the accessory itself.

    People of the DS emulator on the wii should incorporate this and use it as a touch pad.

    This is THQ's creation. It's practically their job to make bad games for Nintendo products.

    Welll, we're getting one on DS, if it's any consolation, haha.

    Besides, I think anything drawy-based would fare much better on the DS than on the Wii, even with a tablet.

    too bad it's only gonna be used for kiddy games and SW just like the DS not worth $70

    if you want your kids to learn to draw than get them 1 of these

    Highly unlikely, but I'd rather there be support for USB tablets like Wacom's, able to connect to the Wii with the USB ports.

    And who knows... this may lead up to an Ouendan 3 or EBA2.

    I would buy this just for the homebrew apps that could use it. They would be better than the actual games.
