The 'indie' tradition is about creating games for the love of the game - and the feeling that you are serving an ignored niche. That doesn't mean that you take a vow of poverty, just that your initial motivation is 'the art'.

For EA, their first, middle and last motivation is money - since 'Indie' is hip, they are exploiting it for more profit.

What JDR is saying is that the end result is good … even if the motivations are exploitive.
