Humble Origin Bundle raises over $9 million with four days left
The Humble Origin Bundle has passed the $9 million mark, and still has four days left on the clock.
Launched last week, the bundle contains the following 10 games for use on EA’s Origin service with select titles coming with a Steam key: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising, Populous, Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2: Maximumk Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 3, and The Sims 3 Starter Pack.
The average purchase price is $4.88 and one donor even dropped a cool $10,000.
EA are donating their share of the proceeds from this bundle to the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, or GamesAid – the buyer decides where the proceeds from their sale go.
As of post time, 1,842,533 have purchased the bundle, bringing the current total to $9,000,413.05. It’s now the most successful Humble Bundle in the scheme’s history, overtaking former record holder Humble Indie Bundle 5, which drew over $5 million with Psychonauts, Limbo, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Bastion.
