THQ has been the talk of the videogame industry after it came to light that they were draining their available credit faster than a beer at a bachelors party.

It even got the point where industry analysts were convinced that they would be forced to declare bankruptcy by June however according to a new release from THQ things have started turning around thanks largely to Saints Row and it’s signature purple dildo.

According to the latest numbers Saints Row: The Third has now sold over 4 million copies via retail and their digital sales are also higher than expected. They also announced that the sales of UFC Undisputed 3 were also higher than expected however they declined to actually put any figures against that title.

However while they managed to avoid touching their credit facility over the past few months (mainly due to no releases) they are expecting to substantially dip into their cash reserves and credit facility in the near future as they prepare to launch Darksiders 2 and other titles.

One small problem though, Darksiders 2 was delayed yesterday from its expected June release until August some time due to the game simply not being ready.

So will THQ manage to surprise everyone and stay afloat for another year or are they doomed by that U-Draw?

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
