EA And Maxis to Ship Spore in September

Tuesday February 12, 1:00 pm ET
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Get ready for the next Big Bang this fall! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS (http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=erts&d=t) - News (http://finance.yahoo.com/q/h?s=erts)) and Maxis today announced that Spore™, the highly anticipated game from the creators of The Sims™, will be available at retailers worldwide the weekend of September 7. Spore will be available for the PC, Macintosh, Nintendo DS™, and mobile phones.

“The wait is almost over,” said Maxis Chief Designer Will Wright. “We’re in our final stages of testing and polish with Spore, and the team at Maxis can’t wait to see the cosmos of content created by the community later this year.”

Spore gives players their own personal universe in a box. Create and evolve life, establish tribes, build civilizations, sculpt entire worlds and explore a universe created by other gamers. Spore gives players a wealth of creative tools to customize nearly every aspect of their universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even UFOs. Players can then seamlessly share their creations with the world or explore infinite new galaxies created by other gamers.

Interesting...organized backlash against the DRM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management) employed by Spore results in thousands of Amazon.com users giving Spore a 1 star rating, the lowest possible.


Is it the beginning of the end for DRM? The comments at the Spore page on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Spore-Mac/dp/B000FKBCX4/) are interesting read.
