Humble THQ Bundle Grosses more than $2 Million in 16 Hours
The Humble THQ Bundle has racked up more than $2 million is sales, in a mere 16 hours and counting. A rep from the charity bundle site has stated.
In a interview with RPS, a rep from Humble Bundle stated the company is happy 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 massive bundle includes some awesome games including: 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.
So far the bundle has sold 401,546 and counting pulling in $2,284,337. and counting, with a average price of $5,69. THQ president Jason Rubin is the top contributor spending $1,050, and Turtle Rock Studios not far behind with $1,024.
