The lights are on
THQ has had it rough lately. When the going gets rough, changes need to be made. For THQ, a big part of pulling itself up from the financial dredges appears to be appointing Jason Rubin, co-founder of Naughty Dog, as the company’s new president.
Rubin replaces former THQ president Danny Bilson, who’ll be moving on to something new. When he was at Naughty Dog, Rubin helped create the highly successful Crash Bandicoot and Jax and Daxter series. Following his departure from the company in 2004, Rubin co-created Flektor, a media mashup tool.
THQ is down but not out. Hopefully Rubin’s proven leadership and industry experience will help the troubled company find secure footing in its attempt to create successful, AAA games. We wish Mr. Rubin and THQ the best of luck.

He could certainly give THQ a comeback. Here's wishing the best of luck to them.
Wish them all good luck
Hope this works out.
Hopefully this means good things to come for THQ
Hm. I like Naughty Dog but I'm not fond of THQ. Maybe Jason can change my opinion.
Hopefully, he will create something that will bring the company back up.
Best of luck to them all.
I been wondering what happened to this guy. Last I heard from him was a couple years ago in a GI feature where he gave his vision for how he would make an RE game. Hope for the best for him and THQ.
Jax and Daxter? LOL
Does this mean we'll finally get a date for Devil's Third?!
I really hope this does something for 'em. I'd hate to see THQ go.
THQ... meh. Jason Rubin... oh yeah. Hopefully he helps them get back to their more successful times.
