EA’s Humble Origin Bundle breaks $2.1 million

"In a move that’ll make many PC gamers do a double take, EA has partnered with the people at Humble Bundle to unleash the “Humble Origin Bundle.”

For just $1 or more, you can acquire Origin keys for Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3 and Medal of Honor. Being extra generous and paying above the average also nets you Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 + Starter Pack.

Now before you click out of this tab after reading “Origin,” know that Dead Space, Burnout Paradise, Crysis 2, Medal of Honor and Mirror’s Edge all have Steam keys as well. Dead Space 3, Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 have to be tied to Origin." - Patrick Kulikowski

I nearly didn't get it due to Origin... But now I can say that if I want to try Origin out, I now own BF3, DS3 and S3 on it!

Fortunately, most come with Steam keys. It's only Battlefield 3, Dead Space 3, and the Sims 3 that don't have steam keys.

Yeah I was a little worried about Origin myself but my daughter was begging for Sims 3 so this was a no brainer for me. Gonna Try Dead Space 1 and & 3 later tonight.

This is an incredible deal. Even though I already own several of the games, I went ahead and bought it anyway simply because it's too good to pass up and it goes towards charity. Dang, I love PC gaming.

theEx1Le1046d ago

Me too, gave most of my duplicates away already. Really Is a good bundle.

AnotherProGamer1046d ago

Origin isn't bad like people make it out to be. I use it have no problems with it

GentlemenRUs1045d ago

It's not the software but the EULA they have.

It allows them to snoop on your PC...

AnotherProGamer1045d ago

uh no that was made-up and people kept saying it like it was fact

it would be illegal to to that

GentlemenRUs1045d ago (Edited 1045d ago )

Wrong, It clearly states in the EULA:

"2. Consent to Collection and Use of Data.

EA may also use this information combined with personal information for marketing purposes and to improve our products and services. We may also share that data with our third party service providers in a form that does not personally identify you.

Am I the only one which reads the EULA out there?

Yes but is this not a bit of a middle finger to the Indies straight from EA? For me it just feels like they're stepping on toes and trying to use the Humbe Bundle to promote Origin since it's failing to catch up with Steam

theEx1Le1046d ago

Thats a really cynical way of looking at it. Another would to say they are better than all the indies, as they aren't taking any money at all with all the proceeds going to charity.

Blackdeath_6631046d ago (Edited 1046d ago )

totally worth it
edit: it at 3mill now and all money goes to charity including all the ea and origin money

iamnsuperman1046d ago

Thanks for the heads up. Even though I don't have a good PC it is worth getting these games cheaply for the future

Kayant1046d ago

Exactly what I did ;)

plmkoh1046d ago

$1 for Dead Space 3 coop is totally worth it.
