CC License

I am really happy to hear that a games publisher is taking the CC License seriously for once, and I applaud you guys for taking that step.

Before you take this step, you should probably look at how the OGL drew a lot of people to WotC's d20 products.

If you have already made this choice, would you mind sharing your reasoning?

Great idea for a game, in any case,

From the CC License itself:

Waiver — Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.

Clearly, the developers will happily waive the non-commercial condition of the license if the third-party developers agree to give them a cut of their profits.

Edit: Whoops, should have been a direct reply, not a sub-reply.
