That’s how much money the THQ Humble Bundle wound up bringing in before it came to a close. THQ stock rose significantly during the sale, and analysts are considering the event a success for the game developer, who has seen its share of financial woes recently.
With a stellar line-up of games available, the value of the THQ bundle was one of the all-time great buys for players. For as little as $1 players could get 6 THQ titles, and by paying higher than an average price that hovered around $5-$6 could get DLC for one of the base games, plus 3 bonus games including AAA title Saints Row: The Third.
With over $5 million raised from 880k sales, there were a lot of folks who paid more than the minimum $1 to grab up the core bundle games. There were also several very large donations made of over $1,000.
Rumors are stirring that THQ is interested in another Humble Bundle sale in the future. Maybe some other non-indie companies are paying attention as well.
