THQ Hits Direct2Drive

THQ LogoHave you been thinking about picking up Supreme Commander or S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but just didn’t want to drive to the store? Now you don’t have to.

Direct2Drive has announced an agreement to distribute games from THQ digitally. Direct2Drive’s Jamie Berger said, “We’re proud to be the first to offer THQ’s roster of hit games to our consumers via digital distribution. Our customers are passionate about great games and blockbusters like Supreme Commander, the award-winning Company of Heroes, and the full Dawn of War series are exciting additions to our unparalleled library of AAA games available for download.”

THQ is just another big name in a host of them making titles available on Direct2Drive. Other companies such as 2K Games, Atari, Activision, Blizzard, Eidos, EA, Namco, NCSoft, SEGA, SOE, Ubisoft, and Vivendi-Universal have previously made titles available through the digital content distributor.

Digital distribution may be the future, but I’m not a huge fan right now. The biggest reason for that feeling is that I tend to change hardware and platforms on a fairly regular basis, and digital distributors like Direct2Drive tend to limit the number of installations that the end user can do before their key no longer works. Hopefully, this is something we’ll see change in the near future.

If customers encounter any issues with their game activations, we are always more than willing to reactivate them. :)
