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