EA understand indie games, they really do, thatā??s why they have their very own indie bundle (http://store.steampowered.com/sub/14499/). They also understand crowd-funding, or at least they understand that itā??s becoming a force that they must reckon with, one way or another. This could go one of two ways. Either Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/) HQ is about to be breached by corporate assault drones, or all the profits from FIFA 13 (http://www.ea.com/uk/football/) will be pledged to the Kick it Forward scheme (http://kickingitforward.org/). Or perhaps there is a third way. Perhaps EA will waive its cut of sales on Origin (http://store.origin.com/store/eaemea/en_GB/search/?keywords=classics&sourceid=ukeastorbanner700651336) for 90 days if the game in question was crowd-funded.
