Humble Origin Bundles sold to over two million; "WHOA"

While EA’s humility remains intact thanks to a 100% donation of their cut to six charities, the numbers are now anything but. Two weeks on and with scarcely a day and a half left, Humble Bundle and the Worst Company in America have breached the two million sales mark. They’ve earned their chosen institutions a combined - gosh, really? - $9,857,595 to date.

"Thank You to everyone who has contributed and played!", tweeted EA from their Origin account.

"WHOA, 2 MILLION ORIGIN BUNDLES SOLD!", added the Humble staff. "A BIG HUG AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!"

The pace has slowed considerably since its fifth day, when it passed $7m in revenue and became the most successful Humble Bundle since people started writing these things down. 

But it seems important to note that, as of Friday, Humble Bundles have collectively earned more than $50m, with over $20m of that total heading to various charities. The Origin Bundle has been responsible for a very large proportion of that last figure in particular.

Here’s the refrain, probably for the last time: pay what you like to get soundtracks for Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3; pay $1 to layer that with Dead Space 1 and 3, Burnout Paradise, Crysis 2, Mirror’s Edge and Medal of Honor; pay over the sub-$5 average to top the lot with Battlefield 3, The Sims 3, Populous and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising.

The resulting funds will be split between the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society and the UK’s own GamesAid.

Did you get one of these, then? If so, what did you install first?

Bought 2 bundles for $15 (total) and installed BF3 first and have been playing it since. Fantastic deal and absolutely fantastic games.

"Worst Company in America" was never true for EA in my opinion although they've been pretty arse a bunch of times they really don't deserve the shit people give them most of the time.
