So far, the Humble Origin Bundle has been record breaking, and it’s not hard to see why. The Bundle originally had Dead Space, Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor, Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 Starter Edition – and none of the money went to EA, but straight to charity instead. Humble Bundle actually had to add an extra number on to their counter after the bundle gained over a million sales. So far, over $8.4 million has been raised, and that’s about to increase.
In the inevitable update to the bundle, EA and Origin have added Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising (Steam and Origin key), and the 1989 classic Populus (Origin key only). I originally predicted that they’d be adding Dead Space 2, considering that Dead Space 1 and 3 were in the original bundle, but it’s a smart business move that they didn’t. Now that people have two thirds of the series, they’ll want to complete it, and as Dead Space 2 is arguably the best in the series, they’ll be encouraged even further.
