The THQ Humble Bundle saw over $5 million in sales and that has the publisher considering other ways to boost sales. In particular, THQ president Jason Rubin said that he got the message when it came to making Linux versions of the company’s various games.
“The message I took away from a large number of tweets and comments around the THQ Humble Bundle sale is that there are vibrant communities of gamers using other operating systems besides the dominant ones, and a company like THQ should not overlook them,” said Rubin. “Complicating the analysis (in a positive way), gamers have tweeted inventive ideas to me, such as letting the community help in the porting to bring down costs. THQ is committed to look at anything that makes sense. I’m sure we will have more to announce shortly.”
Rubin also announced that Saints Row: The Third had sold 5.5 million copies before the Humble Bundle promotion. More than 885,000 bundles were sold, and those who paid more than the average price ($5.76, by the promotion’s end) were given a copy of Saints Row: The Third.
