I'm tempted to download the UK version from Direct2Drive, wonder if the Spore police would come after me.

I guess there are already problems with EA's activation...

Due to the massive influx of activations, EA issued a statement that "there is an ongoing issue with the accounts server and the registration process for the game," and it is being worked on.

I have no idea why they are surprised.

The guy behind SimCity and The Sims releases a new game. OMG it actually sells well and reviews well?! ::

Glad I was able to activate my copy early.

LOL @ Zer0. One of the things Spore makes clear... There is always a bigger fish.
