Origin Bundle is the biggest seller in Humble Bundle's history


The Electronic Arts-sponsored Humble Origin Bundle has earned over $8.6 million in charity donations since its launch earlier this month, breaking previous sales records and emerging as the biggest-selling Humble Bundle offering to date.

The record surpasses last year's Humble Indie Bundle V, which took in $5.1 million over the course of its two-week campaign. The Humble Origin Bundle collects EA's 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 in a pay-what-you-want package. Buyers have the option of dividing their purchase price between several featured charities.

The collection recently added Bullfrog's 1989 strategy game Populous and 2009's RTS Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising to its lineup of "beat the average" purchase incentives. The Humble Origin Bundle will remain available through next Wednesday.
