Preorder the next big SIMS type game and save some pennies too...

The next evolution in gaming is upon us. From the mind of Will Wright, the creator of The Sims, comes SPORE PC, an epic journey that takes you from the origin and evolution of life through the development of civilization and technology and eventually all the way into the deepest reaches of outer space.

Begin your odyssey at the dawn of life as a simple microbe just trying to survive, then use the fun, intuitive Editors to evolve the creature from its microscopic origins into an intelligent, tool-using race. Guide your species as it builds (and the player designs) villages, buildings, cities, and vehicles. Along the way to becoming a global civilization you can choose whether to hunt or forage, attack or trade, be nice or play rough!

a ds version is coming out too ning a wii version for the future

DS version is very cut down. It's only the creature editor mode from the PC version. Nothing else.

Just a quick note, this game isn't really anything like the sims. It's made by the same people and we're probably gonna have to buy lots of expansions. That's the only similarity.

Also of note is that you can only install this game 3 times.

Shopto don't pay Quidco on pre-orders I'm afraid.

Is that 3 times on 1 PC or once each on 3 PCs?

3 times, ever, anywhere ..... Grrrrrrr

This game should be boycotted to prevent this becoming the norm. It prevents you selling it on used.

Yeah, that's why I'm DLing it. Might buy on Friday if it's any good - but didn't realise you could only install 3 times. For somebody who cleans out his comp on a semi-regular basis. That isn't good....

Its very like sims in the fact its a Sim Everything, you have micro manage each element of a creatures evolution. Thankfully it doesnt have the anoying fake plastic people, As for addon packs... I hope they dont do a Spore Apartment Life (Expansion Pack)!

I really like to know how EA are getting away with this as i am positive it breaks law in the UK, have emailed Trading Standards to check.

Breaks no laws.
If you run out of remote activations you have to phone up.

This is designed to stop the product being sold second hand, which you have every right to do. They intend to refuse any activations via phone if your details do not match the previous details entered via the computer.

This deal is still best price for new.

Price has gone up to £29.99.

Not pre-order anymore now. Expired.

]I think this review sums it up perfectly (Click for video review link).

I have played it, and I agree with everything he said.

The game is too short in the creature stage, and it gets boring quickly. You end up rushing about trying to find parts just so you can make something close to what you want, which most of the time ends up being similar to the last one you made due to limited design controls.

Looks like a great game but as your only ever allowed to install the game 3 times before it just becomes a colourful drinks coster i wont be buying!

EA need to stop punishing people for buying leget copies of game, this is certainly not the way to go about stopping piracy (as they have mentioned in the media).

Its utter *****... and since I played a pirate version (before the game was even released), the 3 install thing is utter ***** too!

They were going to do this with Mass Effect as well, but there was such an outcry that they backed down. I think we should boycott companies that try this. I won't be buying it.

First patch is out addressing some gameplay issues for the easy/normal settings, for those interested.
