Precisely. It's a lot like the independent film industry.

One of the biggest benefits of Kickstarter seems to be the ability to fund niche products. KS is unlikely to do away with the AAA title approach, but we will end up with more product variety and some creative innovation along the way. Plus KS may end up feeding the big budget projects with fresh talent who may otherwise go unrecognized.
