THQ has been discussing a focus on the core and upping its quality levels for a while now. The company is also altering its image from being the king of licensed titles, to focusing on original IP (Darksiders) with "transmedia" opportunities. A fancy term, that at its core, means using original IP and selling it in various media streams like movies, comics and whatever else.
Although the interview doesn't reveal anything new, it is interesting to see THQ actually learning from its lower quality titles and heavily licensed past. Now we'll have to wait a while to see if consumers reward the "new THQ" with sales.
