+ - EA To Provide Free Distribution to Kickstarter Games->

Submitted by The God of Code
The God of Code (2641925) writes "EA has announced that they will be waiving all Origin distribution fees for crowd-funded games — like those from Kickstarter — for the first 90 days. "The public support for crowd-funding creative game ideas coming from small developers today is nothing short of phenomenal," Origin VP David DeMartini commented. "It's also incredibly healthy for the gaming industry. Gamers around the world deserve a chance to play every great new game, and by waiving distribution fees on Origin we can help make that a reality for successfully crowd-funded developers". The recently funded Wasteland 2 developer Brian Fargo applauds EA's move, saying "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.""
