(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – THQ’s Humble Bundle is a great concept – receive a package of several great PC titles while allowing buyers to specify where proceeds of the purchase go. While they most prominently benefit charities, funds can also be directed towards the company itself.
The games listed in the company’s latest bundle include titles like Saints Row, Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction and Company of Heroes.
According to the latest statistics from the company, total payments have already reached over $3.5 million dollars and counting. And on average, users are forking over $5.59 per purchase with over 642 thousand transactions accounted for.
“Buying all these blockbuster titles and soundtracks on their own would cost upwards of $190, but we’re letting you name your price! Just one dollar is required to get Steam* keys (beat the average price to get a Steam key for Saints Row: The Third), and the soundtracks are yours for any amount!,” stated THQ via its website at humblebundle.com.
Charities benefited include the American Red Cross and the Child’s Play Charity. Meanwhile, gamers interested should note that the titles are only available with Microsoft’s Windows operating system using Steam. Just over 7 plus days remain for users to receive the Humble THQ Bundle.
