Humble THQ bundle earns $2 million, President top contributor

You should probably get the bundle.

Posted By | On 01st, Dec. 2012

When you saw this Humble Bundle go live, you would have thought, “Hey, wait a minute, isn’t THQ a company?” So yeah, they are, and you can get 6 great games for a minimum amount of money. These games are somewhat costly as well, and the total cost of all the games in the bundle would be easily more than $150.

They include the first Darksiders, Saints Row 3–for which you have to pay at least $6–which is a fair price for a fantastic game. The company was pleased with community’s reaction and released a statement.

“When THQ expressed interest in our pay what you want plus charity model and willingness to let us bundle so many top tier titles, we couldn’t believe it at first,” THQ representative told RPS.

“But trying to turn up our noses at this epic chance to make gamers happy and help worthy causes like Child’s Play and the American Red Cross could only have been defined as arrogance. We had to try and we were extremely curious to see what would happen.”

“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.”

The bundle has gained $2 million with THQ president Jason Rubin being the top contributor.

Here’s the complete list of games:

  • Darksiders
  • Company of Heroes
  • Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
  • Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
  • Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon
  • Saints Row: The Third
