THQ Releases Humble Bundle, Includes Darksiders and Saint’s Row The Third
Get a ton of gaming value on the cheap, all for a good cause.
You have to hand it to THQ: They may be down but they’re not out.
The publisher, which has been facing numerous financial problems over the past few months, has announced the Humble THQ Bundle which contains Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, Company of Heroes, and its two expansion packs. The essence of the Humble Bundle means gamers can opt to pay as much as they want, even $1 USD. But THQ has also stated that if you choose to pay more than pay more than the current average price of the games, you’ll also receive Volition’s Saint’s Row: The Third.
The good news is that the plan seems to have worked, as the Humble THQ Bundle garnered more than $470,000 USD in revenue within a few hours. However, not all of it goes to THQ as gamers can also choose to decide how their money is distributed. This means a split between the developers, Humble’s organizers and charities like Child’s Play and the Red Cross.
Hopefully, it at least provides some measure of relief to the company in the short run.
