DRM (and lawsuits) aside, Spore has sold a ton of copies. In late September Electronic Arts (EA) said it had already sold 1 million copies (combined PC, Mac and Nintendo DS) sales since shipping on September 7th, despite DRM "Protest Creatures" and critical end user reviews at stores like Amazon.com.
Slightly over a week ago listings for something appeared at both Amazon.com (since removed) and GameStop
appeared, showing a add-on pack called the Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack. There was a ship date of November 18th, but no additional info, and no word from EA about it.
Showing up on the EA Store
as a pre-order is pretty good confirmation, however. And, with that listing on the EA Store, we get a look at the box, and confirmation of both the price ($19.99, as GameStop listed) and the date of November 18th.
So, for 40% of the price of the original game ($49.99) what are you going to get? Still no information on the EA site; perhaps just more creature parts?
Now if we could just get some dates for Diablo III and Starcraft 2 we'd be happy.
