THQ may be having financial troubles as of late, but with some strong games, they now project an extra $30 million in net sales for their fourth quarter, from $130-$150 million to $160-$170 million. They still, however, expect a net loss per share of about $.10 to $.20.
They cite three reasons for this boon: increased retail sales and DLC sales of Saints Row: The Third, as well as increased retail sales for UFC Undisputed 3. Both games received near-perfect marks from me, so I am more than pleased to see better quality games yield better sales.
Hopefully, they can capitalize on this momentum with the solid, though slightly delayed, Darksiders II.
