There's an interesting NY Times article about Spore in today's online edition: Gaming Evolves

BTW the system requirements for running Spore are here: http://www.spore.com/what/specs_spore

It took me a while to find 'em, so I thought I'd post a direct link...

What's up with the backwards release dates? Is Satan taking ice skating lessons? USA almost always gets games long before Europe and Australia. Usually months in advance!

Perhaps they finally realized how lame that is? It also helps a bit against piracy to have close release dates, so you don't get customers who say "Wtf, the Amerikans have it, and I have to wait a month? Fsck that, I'll just grab a torrent" :)

If I remember correctly, Nintendo ships their Wii's first to Japan/Asia then Europe and after that to the US nowadays. Problems with getting the money for their products lead to their decision. This was on Slashdot, so likely to be taken with a grain of salt...but still.

p3lb0x, use <attachthumb=#> when posting big screenshots - and you might want to resize to 800x600 for the lesser-broadband-enabled people :) (and doing .jpg instead of .png for game screenshots is probably a pretty good idea as well).
