Not too long ago, we had a Deep silver humble bundle that seemed like the world’s biggest bargain – but there’s a new one from EA that is quite frankly crazy. For the insane price of whatever the hell you want, you can get great games like Dead Space 3, Mirror’s Edge, Burnout Paradise Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum and Medal of Honor. That’s ludicrous.
On top of that, if you pay above the average – which right now is about $5 – you’ll also get Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 with 2 of its expansion packs. And yes, it includes those games soundtracks.
Here’s the kicker; EA doesn’t want any of your money. Usually, you can split it between charities, the publisher or developer, and the humble bundle organisers – but EA is giving up its share, giving it all to charities – the Human Rights Campaign; Watsi; the San Francisco AIDS Foundation; the American Red Cross; or the American Cancer Society.
There is a caveat though; you’re going to need a heck of a lot of bandwidth to download it al (about 100 gigs) and you’ll also have to do your downloading through Origin – with some of the games coming as Steam keys. Sorry, but them’s the breaks. The bundle has already raised over $2,84 million for charity – which is pretty damned fantastic.
