I believe Bioware is owned by EA.  I don't know if they're worse than Activision (think EA sports) but at least their executives are smart enough to shut up (as far as I know).  Plus, they're offering their games much much cheaper than any Activision titles.  Starcraft 2 is going to cost 2.5x more than a copy of an EA game- say Mass Effect 2 or Battlefield Bad Company 2.

We need more indie developers.  That's what I think.

Of course, the problem with indie developers is that it costs a lot of money to publish a game, which most indie guys get from signing a distribution deal with one of the megacorps. Either that, or they release for minimal cost on the PC, and get no exposure on consoles and make minimal money from the arrangement. It's not an easy situation when the almighty dollar is involved.
