The Tech Report writes game publisher THQ is evaluating Linux. In response to a question on Twitter, THQ president Jason Rubin responded that his company is evaluating the cost/benefit as we speak. In a response to gaming website Polygon, Rubin added that more details will be announced shortly.
The folks at gaming site Polygon got Rubin to elaborate via e-mail. In his response, the THQ President noted that there are "vibrant communities" of gamers running less-popular operating systems like Linux, and THQ "should not overlook them." He went on to say:
"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."
Rubin apparently ended his e-mail on a positive note, saying he believes THQ will have more details to announce "shortly."
