Wasteland 2 NOT an Origin Exclusive

Enough people took Brian Fargo's positive comments about Origin's support for crowd-funded games as an indication that Wasteland 2 might be an Origin exclusive that the inXile Entertainment CEO took to Twitter to correct that mistaken impression. He says: "It is absolutely NOT going to be exclusive on Origin. They are just one of many digital stores we will support." Thanks nin.

For all the hate some here are putting on D3, I hope they give the same hate to EA and didn't buy BF3.

How does that make sense? There's no "always on" requirement for the single player portion of BF3. And while the requirement to run Origin to play BF3 is annoying, it's no more annoying than the requirement to run Steam is for Steamworks games.

As for EA in this, it's interesting to see how blinded by their dislike/hatred some people have become. Reminds me of the old joke about EA (if it were a person) walking on water, and the next day people complaining that it can't swim. By waiving the fees for 90 days, EA is putting all of the profit from the games in the hands of the developers. Like EA or don't like EA, that's a good thing for the developers, and considering the Kickstart system, is a good thing for consumers. And they aren't requiring anything like exclusivity in order to gain that benefit.

When EA does stupid shit, by all means call them on it. And they do enough that there's plenty to point at. But when they do something right, at least have the decency to admit they are, rather than trying to attack them over it.
