It’s extremely rare to see AAA titles up for sale as a pay-what-you-want model, but with THQ in desperate need of a financial turn-around a THQ Humble Bundle isn’t really a surprise. You can name your price for a massive collection of THQ games including Darksiders, Metro 2033, Company of Heroes and its various expansions, Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor. You’ll also get Red Faction: Armageddon and if you pay the average price Saints Row: The Third will be thrown into the mix.
This deal will be ran for 13 days over on www.humblebundle.com. Keep in mind that this deal does not affect Humble Bundle’s regular Indie Bundle deals.
As with any Humble Bundle, you get to choose where your money goes — the Humble Bundle team, Charity or THQ. In this case, I think THQ is hoping that consumers will be generous enough to donate to the company to hopefully help them out of the financial pit they are in.
Desperate times call for desperate measures though and as PC Gamer notes, “few things more humbling for THQ than seeing its stock price plough through the floor.”
