Humble Indie Bundle 4 Passes $2M

Humble Mumble notes that the Humble Indie Bundle 4 has surpassed the $2 million sales threshold. Word is: "With four days left and a record-breaking 380,000 plus bundles sold, Humble Indie Bundle 4 may become the biggest bundle ever. It seems like only yesterday that Jeff and I had launched the first Humble Indie Bundle and were pulling consecutive all-nighters to make sure no customers were left behind." A previous post also explains that the new $1.00 minimum purchase price to be eligible for Steam keys is to stop people from gaming the system: "Hey guys, we’ve noticed that a number of un-humble users are buying lots of Humble Indie Bundle 4’s for one penny, and then using their Steam codes to “legitimize” automated Steam accounts in order to increase their odds of winning prizes in Valve’s current raffle promotion. This is unfair to legitimate entrants and is definitely not what we wanted to encourage with Humble Indie Bundle 4. It’s a lose-lose situation for the indie developers, charities, Valve, and Humble Bundle."

Pretty impressive numbers. It's sad that the Humble Bundle is the only one to get those kind of numbers, though. The other bundles aren't nearly as successful.

I think part of it is because this bundle is the only one that has all of its games on all 3 major platforms and all their games are DRM free.
