A new Humble Bundle has been launched for Windows featuring several blockbuster games titles from Electronic Arts. It's called the Humble Origin Bundle. If you pay over US$1 for the bundle you will get Origin keys (some Steam keys are also available) for Dead Space 3, Dead Space, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor, and Mirror’s Edge.
100 per cent charitable
This bundle offer will not profit EA/Origin directly as all the Humble Bundle proceeds will go to charity. When purchasing the Humble Origin Bundle you will be presented with a charity allocation slider with which you can choose how much of your payment goes to which charities. The charities you can choose from include; The Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross and San Francisco AIDS Foundation. You will also be able to allocate a Humble tip for the Humble Bundle folks.
Battlefield 3 & The Sims 3
If you pay more than the average price (donation?) your Humble Origin Bundle will include the added bonus of two more blockbuster games titles; "unrivalled military shooter" Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3, along with two expansion packs in The Sims 3 Starter Pack. At the time of writing the average price is a mere $4.72.
