Spore Coming to the iPhone (and iPod Touch)
In retrospect it's not a surprising announcement (Spore will be on everything in few years) but at a press conference where Apple detailed it's iPhone software development platform, EA was happy to announce a specially made version of Spore for the uber-popular iPhone (and iPod Touch).
Details are scant right now, but we know the game will use the special technologies in the iPhone, including it's Accelerometer and multi touch screen. The game will include some kind of creature creator, but the only images of the game in the flOw like stage. The game won't be released before September (presumably right along with the PC game).
So long as the price is right and the game is of the same quality of the PC game, I'll definitely be interested. The iPhone and iPod Touch have some really interesting technology in them, so hopefully we'll see some more creative games for the "platform" (such as this one).

Wow EA is really going all out with this one. But those mobile/iphone/DS versions are just ways of scraping a bit more money.
I think its more than just scraping a bit of money together, but its also about building a new IP, Spore could very well be the best selling game franchise in history in another 3 or 4 years.
it's not about making more Money but offering the game in popular formats. I just hope I'll be able to buy it when the App store is finally opened.
Right now there isn't much other than online Phone Apps available for iPhone and Touch unless you jailbreak them.
wow I can't wait for spore to come out in iPod touch. I have been waiting for the game to come out. It's amazing what EA Games has been doing lately.
