Creepy and Cute for free with Spore .... WTH
« on: October 25, 2008, 04:11:38 am »


Until today i was positive abouth the new parts pack but this morning I saw on the Dutch EA Store that if you buy the digital version of Spore you will get Creepy and Cute for free ....

... well ... I am sure this will happen in most countries now and its really stupid to give away Creepy and Cute for nothing while we that got Spore before have to pay 15 euro or 20 dollars for it.

I know this is the way EA operates since I started to play Sims years ago but to make this offer not even 2 months after the release of Spore even makes me pissed !!!!!!!!!!

Yes. Because that is smart marketing.

These things happen and have happened all the time with pretty much every popular game out there that has expansion of some sort. This does not surprise me, and it shouldn't surprise you.

Yeah, but.... this soon after initial release is really just rubbing our noses in it. =3

This was'nt a spur of the moment kind of thing. They would have had this planned long before Spore was released. The bastards.

Those bastards. How DARE they create a savings bundle, thereby creating extra incentive for those who otherwise may never purchase their product! Unacceptable! And not giving us this offer before the parts pack existed, no less! Why, this ... marketing ... it's probably the worst thing that's happened to PC gaming since the CD key, I tells you.

Guys, this is hardly unprecedented, and it's absolutely nothing to get worked up over. If you really want to get the parts pack for free, why not hold off on buying it when it's released and see if a similar offer doesn't pop up with the space expansion. Or, if you don't want to wait for a special offer that may or may not happen, buy it on release. If it seems unfair that you had to pay more, think of it as paying extra to get it sooner than they did.

Yeah, but those not paying for the pack didn't have the pleasure of enjoying Spore until now :P

It annoys me that they punish fans who've waited for years and were so stupid to buy on the first day. And now have to dish out 20$ if they really want it.

Ha.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.
