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.

Well, as neither of us have details, I certainly can't prove they don't, but where is your evidence to suggest that it's plausible - let alone likely? Has there been any stories about Valve doing anything for Kickstarter projects? Considering how quickly this story hit the news, a similar story from Valve should have been equally well reported, but I find no such story.
For starters, virtually every KS project was offering their games via-Steam. They clearly felt it was worthwhile doing so. Further, Valve has a long history of supporting indie developers whereas EA doesn't. And Valve doesn't release its developer/publisher terms to the public and doesn't comment on their business practices - this was best demonstrated when EA was bitching in the press about Steam, whereas Valve said nothing.

So again, that's just bias talking. "EA is doing something decent, and they are totally shitty, so there's no way they could be doing something decent unless they were getting forced to by Valve."
Pretty much. Valve has lead the market, whereas EA has resisted at every opportunity. EA led the market with the DRM limited activations in Spore, refused to let people redownload their games, charge obscene prices for games and boycott Steam. I've had to deal with EA's bullshit DRM locking me out of games, which required contacting their support services - all of which are obviously based in India based upon the rep names and the horrible broken English responses.

If you're trying to convince me that EA isn't a shitty company then you're doing a very bad job. One gesture like this isn't enough to counter the horrible things they've done to gamers.
