Origin Woos Crowd-Funded Games

EA announces it will waive its distribution fees on Origin for crowd-funded, "ready-to-publish" downloadable PC games for 90 days after launch. They offer quotes from prominent Kickstarter projects praising the move. "Crowd-funded projects are like the 'people's choice awards' -- a way for gaming fans to express what they want to buy and play. It's great to see a big publisher like EA acknowledging that and opening up distribution opportunities for these games," says Jane Jensen, President, Pinkerton Road. "I have had a long relationship with EA and it is great to see them recognize and support the crowd-funded games model," said Brian Fargo, CEO, inXile Entertainment. "Having Origin waive their distribution fees for 90 days for fan funded games is a major economic bonus for small developers. We look forward to bringing Wasteland 2 to the Origin audience."
