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.

I disagree that EA is the worst company in America. I think MS easily takes the cake for that. While EA has some anti-competitive practices (like requiring Origin for all their PC games), MS surpasses them.
I agree, and they have a far larger impact on the world and computing as a whole, EA is just 1 game company. Also, you list some stuff they do with consoles, but there are many non-gaming related examples of even worse stuff MS habitually does. I'll throw out one small example. I've seen cases where MS will ask a small company to come in and show them a technology and they say they are interested in buying it, but they need to see details, maybe get the program to trial it. MS then tells them they aren't interested, but the technology shows up in a shipped product (aka MS stole the technology, program, IP, etc). The company sues MS and MS settles out of court, paying a microscopic fraction of what they would have had to pay to buy or license the stuff outright. The small company caves to the settlement, since they can't afford to fight MS's army of lawyers and spend years in court. Plus the settlement MS offers is usually in the millions (pocket change to MS), so it looks attractive to settle, even though they might have been able to get a hundred million if they were able to fight to the finish in court.
