1.4 Million Unsold Video Games Won’t Be Buried in the Desert

Yesterday, it was learned that the video game publisher THQ is sitting on 1.4 million unsold copies of uDraw, a hugely unsuccessful game designed around a tablet peripheral. uDraw was such a disastrous investment—the publisher lost around $100 Million on production and lost revenue—that it is almost singlehandedly responsible for their dire financial straits.

Give em away to schools.

Agreed. We said the same thing at home.. There are schools I'm sure would be interested..

You could probably go around to different schools and sell them for dirt-cheap too. Would give them a little bit of money back...

Give them to charity, that will get a lot of attention. Like Childs Play.

Don't make shit games.

Looks like the first game, uDraw Studio, sold well over a million copies. I don't know if it was good or not, but it sold pretty well.

The follow up game, uDraw Studio: Instant Artist, totally bombed. Presumably, they thought it would sell over a mil like the first, but in fact nobody bought it.

Just goes to show how the quickly the gaming market can change.
