Humble THQ Bundle nets over $3.3 million (and counting)

Huge shock as people buy things that are cheap!

Despite proving controversial, THQ's "Humble Bundle" has raked in $3.3 million since it launched last Thursday, as over 580,000 customers take the chance to snap up games for as little as $1.00. According to GI.biz, share prices have risen to $1.60 from $1.07 -- up by 37.96%.

The "pay what you want" bundle includes Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Armageddon and Company of Heroes, and the average buyer is opting to spend $5.64. Paying above the average entitles you to a free copy of Saints Row: The Third

Although proving successful, the deal has nonetheless touched a nerve with some folk, who expect all humble bundles to be indie, cross-platform, and DRM free. THQ's games don't fit those expectations, being AAA titles that require both Steam and Windows. Still, it's not calling itself the Humble Indie Bundle, and it's not promising anything it isn't delivering, so I don't quite see the problem.

Given THQ's troubles, whatever the deal lacks in Indie, it certainly makes up for in Humble.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
