Humble THQ Bundle surpasses $2 million in just 16 hours
The Humble THQ Bundle has already surpassed $2 million in sales, and according to a representative of the charity bundle site, contributors needn’t be worried the service is shying away from indie titles.
Speaking with RPS, a representative for Humble Bundle said the firm is pleased with the community’s reaction to the bundle.
“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,” the rep said. “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 includes: Darksiders, Company of Heroes, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, and Saints Row: The Third – should you pay over the average price.
As of this post, 401,546 bundles have been sold to the tune of $2,284,337.46 at an averages price of $5.69.
Naughty Dog co-founder and THQ president Jason Rubin is listed as the top contributor with $1,050.00, and Turtle Rock Studios is the second largest with $1,024.00.
