THQ Releases Humble Bundle

/ Nov 30th, 2012 No Comments

The Humble THQ Bundle

THQ has launched a not-so-indie Humble Bundle selling seven games in the name-your-price format to benefit charities.

The Humble Bundle website usually selling packages of indie games is offering Saints Row: The Third, Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, Company of Heroes and its two expansion packs for PC through Steam at an incredibly low price. Anyone who takes advantage of the deal also gets the soundtracks to each of the games.

[adsense250itp]Purchasers can name their price for the package of games but must pay at least $1. Gamers who want Saints Row: The Third as part of the deal must pay over the average price to receive the game. Currently, the average price is $5.72. If the games were to be purchased separately, it would set back players around $190.

Money made from the sale of the Humble THQ Bundle will go to the struggling company, the Humble Bundle website, and Child’s Play Charity and the American Red Cross. Customers can choose to give all their money to one of the three or divide it up amongst them accordingly.

The Humble Bundle is usually termed the Humble Indie Bundle as it gives smaller independent developers a chance to showcase their games while also benefiting charities. Having a major game company that makes AAA titles is somewhat controversial. However, THQ has struggled to stay afloat financially even after strong sales from Darksiders 2. Plus, it is hard to argue with good games at a great price while charities benefit.

This bundle is only for PC. Upon purchase, players will receive keys to unlock each of the games via Steam. Unfortunately, anyone who already owns one of the games will not be able to gift a key to another user.

The Humble THQ Bundle will be on sale for 12 more days, putting the promotion on until Dec. 12. At the time of this writing the bundle had already been sold to 349,445 people and made over $2,001,000.
