Humble Bundle has announced that EA's Humble Origin Bundle is their greatest performer to-date, with over 1.25 million bundles sold raising "over $6 million" in sales. All proceeds go to various charities.

Nine days are left for the Humble Origin Bundle, which continues to rocket in sales. The last big money draw was the Humble Indie Bundle V back in June, raising $5.1m.

The appeal of Humble Bundle is that contributors 'pay what they want' for a bundle of games, with certain extras unlocked if you pay more than the average.

Mirror's Edge, Medal of Honor, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Battlefield 3, The Sims 3 Starter Pack, Dead Space and Dead Space 3 make up the Humble Origin Bundle. Some are supplied only with EA Origin keys while some also offer redeemable Steam keys.

"The Humble Origin Bundle is our biggest bundle EVER with over $6 MILLION in sales and 1.25+ million bundles sold!" tweeted Humble Bundle. As of press time, the Humble Origin Bundle has sold over 1.44 million bundles.

Charities include the Human Rights Campaign, watsi, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. You can adjust what percentage of your payment goes to each.

That's why the Origin store said "Mercy!" for the first 24 hours.

I bought it a few days ago and at night when I bought it I had Sims 3 Origin codes and the next morning they transformed into sims3.com codes. What's up with that?
