Get Sims 3 Mac, 7 PC Titles for Under $5
Electronic Arts has irritated and angered many, and is trying to make amends with a pay your own price bundle via their Origin online store. For the pure play Mac gamer, there is only The Sims 3 Mac. However, folks that play PC games on their Macs, there are seven additional titles for the same price.
Here is how the Humble Origin Bundle works:
• Pay what you want (i.e. $1) and get Dead Space 3, Crysis 2 Maximum, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor and Mirror’s Edge
— All six are PC-only games
• Pay the average of $4.82 plus one cent and get The Sims 3 Mac (plus two expansion packs) and Battlefield 3
All games are playable on Origin (Windows only) and some come with Steam keys, as well.
Then there’s charity. For example, if you choose to pay $4.83, the current average plus one cent price, $4.11 will be split evenly between the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, American Red Cross or American Cancer Society.
Why would the pure play Mac gamer care? The best Sims 3 Mac price I could find is $14.99 before shipping and tax.
Yep, it’s a pretty good deal and most of what you’ll pay goes to charity…
What’s your take?
