Phuket: THQ raises over US$5 million in Humble Bundle

GAMING: The Humble THQ Bundle earned over US$5 million (B153 million) in sales as it closed last week, with company president Jason Rubin’s US$10,000 (B305,000) purchase making him the top contributor overall.

A total of 885, 320 bundles were sold with the money spread between THQ, Humble Bundle organisation, and several charity outlets.

The move allowed gamers to name their price as they purchased seven games, giving them the option on how to spread their money between THQ and charities.

Launched on November 29, the Humble THQ Bundle included six games – Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction, Company of Heroes, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, and Saints Rows: The Third – all of which would be available for download for Windows operating system.

Gamers paid an average of US$5.76 (B176) per bundle, which also came with select games’ soundtracks. 

Following the success of the Humble THQ Bundle, Rubin said the company is investigating its options on Linux with an eye to possibly developing games for the operating system.

“[There are] vibrant communities of gamers using other operating systems besides the dominant ones, and a company like THQ should not overlook them,” Rubin said in an interview recently.
