Taking in over $3.4 million since last Thursday, over 600,000 gamers have taken advantage THQ's Humble Bundle, buying AAA titles for as little as a $1.00 a piece.

The Humble Bundles “pay what you want” includes games such as Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Armageddon and Company of Heroes. A free copy of Saints Row: The Third is also on offer for anyone who pays above the average amount that stands at $5.62.

It's been quite a controversial decision to host THQ’s games, as they aren’t aesthetically “indie” in any form and include DRM (via Windows or Steam). However THQ’s distribution method via Humble Bundle is still upholding one indie ideal by allowing customers to pay anything for the games, either towards the company itself, a charity or a tip to the Humble Bundle team!

It’s no secret that THQ has been in severe financial trouble for over a year, losing many jobs in the process, however this recent boost in sales according to GamesIndustry.biz, has raised share prices to $1.60 from $1.07, an increase of 37.96%.

It seems that THQ may be fixing their financial woes thanks to Humble Bundle, and so far this method of giving the customers what they want for a great deal whilst making a profit has been a win-win for every party involved.
