Yesterday, we 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—it cost the publisher around $100 Million on production and lost revenue—that it is almost singlehandedly…
