EA Has A Humble Bundle And It's Far From Humble

EA has a Humble Bundle, first digest this. Your first instinct is anger, right? Okay now take stock. Read this list of games: Dead Space, Burnout Paradise, Crysis 2, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor. How are you feeling now? Still a bit angry? Okay, that's cool. I like a person with principles. Pay more than the average (currently $4.64) and you get Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3. That change anything?

Okay well, how about this: instead of being a cash grab like the THQ Humble Bundle (and let's be fair, THQ needed the cash) EA will not see a single cent from this Humble Bundle. Its share is going directly to the charities you choose when you buy the bundle.

Still angry? still see this as some sort of publicity stunt or advertising for EA/Origin? Hmmm, I guess there's no swaying you. Let's agree to disagree.

I think this is a really cool thing to do and I fully support it. Great job EA. $1.8 million has been raised already. That's incredible.

    This is how it's done EA! We need to make sure we praise them to show them that this is what we as consumers want from them. More this, less DRM, poor customer service and day one DLC.

    That's what I was planning to do anyway. So good on EA for being aware of how reviled they are, and factoring that in.

    I'll probably wind up doing this. I wanted to try out MOH and I'm not going to say no to a copy of Burnout. I have pretty much everything else on 360 but eh, whatever. Nothing wrong with having a PC backup in case it's 2025 and I desperately need to play Dead Space 3, only my 360 has been dead for nine years.

    Well I guess I better get all the Battlefield 3 DLC

    EA look less like jerks while getting Origin on more PCs. Charities get money. Gamers get tons of games cheap. It's win-win!

    Agreed, it is a great deal. Too bad I already own the titles I want from that list.

    not bad but I see one issue..... Origin... I'm not putting origin on my computer. If its not on steam i don't care.

    If they put dragon age in it, ill buy it

    Doesn't work , they told me "PayPal Error" ...
