THQ #2 publisher for simply June

  It may seem that both Activision and THQ are vying for the #2 publisher position, but it appears both have rights to their claim. Activision is the #2 publisher over the three month period April-June, while THQ simply claims the position for June. NPD Funworld even boasted THQ's claims stating that it is the #1 handheld publisher for videogames year-to-date.

   Extreme sales were posted from such games as WWE WrestleMania X8 for the Nintendo GameCube, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones for the Game Boy Advance, Scooby Doo! Night of 100 Frights for the PlayStation 2, MX Superfly for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube, and Tetris Worlds for the GameCube and Xbox.

   "We are extremely pleased with the performance of our recent releases and our market position in June as the #2 software publisher as we enter the back half of the year," stated Alison Locke, executive vice president, North American publishing, THQ. "With recent hardware price cuts and the rapid adoption of next generation consoles by the mass market gamer, we're seeing some great momentum for our mass market brands as we prepare to enter the sweet spot of the console cycle."
