I think kickstarter works well as a way to attract prepurchases and particularly when combined with a greenlight campaign. I don't see a problem with that, since it lowers the overall cost of getting a game to market for independent developers and so enables them to tackle larger projects without being beholden to a publisher. That's all very positive I think for gamers - surely the main advantage to us is not having the suits decide on what new games get made.
