Humble THQ Bundle surpasses $3m

Punters continue to snap up the bargain game collection

The Humble THQ Bundle, which launched last Thursday, has now generated close to $3.3 million.


The bargain game collection allows customers to pay as little as $1 for Steam keys for a collection of PC games.

The package of titles includes Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Armageddon and Company of Heroes (plus its two expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor).

Buyers can choose how their purchase is divided between the Child's Play Charity, the American Red Cross, and/or THQ.

Though the lowest possible payment for all of the games is $1, the average contribution so far has been $5.64. As a bonus, those who pay above the average price receive a copy of Saints Row: The Third.

Just shy of 580,000 punters have now purchased the Humble THQ Bundle, which made $2 million overnight following its launch last week, helping the publisher enjoy a rare surge in its share price.

THQ is facing a number of financial difficulties. The firm has defaulted on loan repayments to lender Wells Fargo and has until January 15 to meet the bank's conditions.

In early November, THQ announced a quarterly net loss of $21 million and delayed three games: South Park: The Stick Of Truth, Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes 2.
