THQ stock rises after Humble Bundle, CEO Colin Farrell spends $1650
Fantastic THQ games.
The Humble THQ bundle may have crossed $2 million but the company’s CEO and president equally contributed a lot of money towards it. It’s not that high as Notch, creator of Minecraft, usually contributes, which he hasn’t here, surprisingly.
Farrell spent $1650 on the bundle with his own money and so did Jason Rubin, who later said that he had given everything to charity. Now THQ is in need of donation as well, so I don’t know whether he was talking about the company or not. (joke)
The bundle contains six awesome games, and upon paying $6 you also get access to Saints Row 3, which is an awesome game as well.
“So far, it’s been pretty well received: we’re on record pace both in total sales and number of purchases. It looks like we’ve passed the two million dollar mark in just 16 hours. We are hopeful that this excitement is growing our community in a way that can only help our future promotions, and rest assured that indie bundles will continue to be an important part of our business,” a THQ representative told RPS.
Here’s the list of the six games:
- Company of Heroes
- Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
- Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
- Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon
- Saints Row: The Third
Now this bundle also caused the stock to rise by 37.96 per cent to over $1.60 a share. It’s not clear if it’s the bundle that has caused the stock rise, but it could also be due to other factors.
