After two weeks online, the Humble Origin Bundle, which featured ten of EA's games, sold over 2.1 million copies and generated over $10.5 million in sales.
Most of the funds benefitted six charities with additional optional tips going to support Humble Bundle for hosting the promotion. None of the profits actually went to EA.Consumers who purchased the bundle named their own price and then determined how to distribute their donation across the participating organizations: Human Rights Campaign, watsi, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, American Red Cross, GamesAid and the American Cancer Society.
With a retail price of $240, the Humble Origin Bundle quickly became the biggest selling bundle in Humble Bundle history, reaching over 1 million bundles sold in just under 36 hours.
Once you paid what you wanted, you could select how much to donate to each charity as well as Humble Bundle from their total donation. Any dollar amount would unlock six EA games – Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honor. If you paid more than the average price at their time of purchase, you could unlock four additional games: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising, Battlefield 3, Populous and The Sims 3.
