I was surprised to see the average jump to $8.06 (I had thought that it was at $7.80-something this morning),
Its because only above average purchases include these extra 3 games (and any previous purchases)

Which, while true, generally only encourages people to bid at that average level and not above. I honestly didn't expect that many people would suddenly jump on board because of three games, two of which have appeared on these bundles before and have had several other sales in the past, within such a short time frame of the three additions being announced.
You only get the extra 3 if you pay MORE than average, not stay at the average. Which means that encourages a rise in average price. In fact, the average is still going up, its up to $8.10 right now.
There could be other reasons too, like I don't know when notch kicked in his $10k.
