Title: SPORE RELEASE ALERT
Post by: Rct2mad on May 22, 2006, 01:23:21 pm
I was scanning through Gamespot when I noticed this:

"Big-name game listings weren't confined to the Wii, however. EBgames also has a listing up for a Nintendo DS version of Electronic Arts' highly anticipated Spore. That meshes nicely with EA job listings posted earlier this year looking for designers for a handheld version of Spore. Curiously enough, the DS version is currently set for a March 2007 release, while the PC edition has been pushed back yet again, this time to June 2007. "

All we can do is hope that it is June 8 2007 (my birthday :D)

I'm fine with that. I was hoping for novemeber so I could get it for MY birthday, but if theres stuff they want to iron out, or even ad (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=4672.0)d in, I have no objections.


None, that is, unless they put it right back for another year or more.

True, more often than not it's tactical.

You wouldn't want to say 'we will definatly have it out by april' then have it come out in may. Better to say 'we aim to have it out by june' then have it come out early to hoerds of salivering fans.

Post by: SpaceOddity on May 22, 2006, 01:43:19 pm
I'm not surprised.

All that we really knew was: not this fiscal year => not before April '07
and
Spore will not be feature on another E3.

June '07 fits the description well enough.

Actually, at least it won't distract me whilst I'm at college.  Instead, I've got the summer holidays to enjoy playing Spore non-stop for several weeks  :D

Any chance it will be delayed anymore?

Oh, what a bunch of crud. It's a good 13 months or so away. On one very miniscule part, I am glad that it gives them that much more time to invest in it and really turn it into a killer game. On the very large majority part, it looks like we get to look for GDC'07 for the next installment of any info relating to the game.

Blast, when's Supreme Commander coming out?
Title: Re: SPORE RELEASE ALERT
Post by: google_video_fan on May 22, 2006, 01:58:35 pm
Wait...


What are we basing this on? Gamespot's Retail Radar?

As we found out with the Q1 2007 Release statement from Gamespot a few months ago, they have no idea what they're talking about. The Handheld job posting has been there for quite some time (Gamespot covered that in Feb. 06, here: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6145004.html).

I'm going to assume that EBGames is shooting in the dark. We all know that the release will be Q1 next fiscal year, the question is when exactly. This June 06 date seems like a guess. I'm not saying it won't be before, or after, just making sure you guys understand that unless it comes from EA or Maxis, it's just not true.

WW: We're saying that Spore is coming out in 2007. The message that we are getting from [Electronic Arts] corporate is "Don't screw it up," which is great. What they mean is, "Lets get it right." This will be the game's last E3.

Please take the following statement to heart, as its wisdom will serve you well throughout your life:

Retailers generally have no insider information about release dates; if anything, we are probably better informed than they are because we're following it so closely, and in any case, they will change it to whatever date they like so that preorders keep flowing in.

Thanks!

That said, a delay isn't really all that unlikely anyway. I don't think the game is as close to finished as we hope it is. But the only dates we should pay any attention to will come from EA or Maxis. Anything else is pure speculation or plain manipulation.

I repeat: It is seeeeriously unlikely any of us will know anything of the release date until about three months before it comes out. The following release dates have been announced:

September 2006, October 2006, December 2006, January 2007, February 2007, March 2007, April 2007, May 2007, and now June 2007.

Wow, I have this great expression that describes all of you perfectly......"SHEEP".
Just because an article says so does not make it true, remember some times the people writing the article and the company sponsoring it have vested intrests and will not tell you the truth or bend the truth to make it say what they want it to say.
Any way I think its been in development for a little too long so it will more than likely be released when the hype reaches it peak and then seamlessly update it over several months, like patches to fax "third arm equals death to universe" problem and other such things.

Will Wright said '07.  He said it was the games last E3.  And, if you guys watched the small interview of the three developers working on Spore, they said everything was going very well and on schedule, without any rushing or sudden stopping.  so I will say Pre E3 '07, as Will Wright said.

Here's a good idea for not looking like an jerk:
Don't call people "sheep". It's never beneficial.

A surefire way to get one's self enmity is for him to gloat about his superior knowledge and remark upon the astounding ignorance of the plebeians with whom he is forced to share the Internet.

I will remark on ignorance where I see it. Besides I was just saying that people are taking every little thing, articles and what other people say, much too seriously. I mean it will be released when it is released and the people who actually HAVE the planned release dates have never said anything as specific as most of these articles are getting their dates.
Where did I say I have superior knowledge, I know just as much as the rest of you, except maybe Hydro, about the game and its realease date I was just saying what I thought would happen as to when its release, notice I did not give a date as to avoid seeming like an ass when I am wrong.

You're coming off awful harsh on people who are merely speculating on potential news. No one said this was unflappable information or that we had any idea when the solid release date would be. I don't think that deserves calling people "sheep", which is a pretty self-aggrandizing move in the first place.

notice I did not give a date as to avoid seeming like an ass when I am wrong.

Don't worry.  Its a general trend that I observe whenever some negative news is posted.  The first few posts are like "NO!!!"  but then some people start saying that the source isn't reliable enough to conclude any definate truth.  After that more people start to post saying "YAY!!!" (Including some converted "NO!!!" people) 

However, some people are unsure and start questioning the people who questioned the source.  And the arguments begin...

Bah, I'll have quake wars to keep me going between its release and spore, but, i hope they dont hold it off too long, i really hate people hyping up a game, and looking forward to it and then it doesnt get released for ages.

By all that ive seen spore is pretty solid, nothing but needing to polish things up really, add in the last few small little features, they could probably release it within a month or two with only needing a single patch or something soon after.

Bah, its like the game of games, a will wright production, so, i guess allowing him time to complete his sacred works means a better game for everyone.

I'm feeling sadistic tonight so I thought I'd share this with you, most of you will already have seen it since it is dated May 15th, but I've found no reference to it in this thread, so here goes.

From CNN.com (http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/fun.games/05/15/e3.wrapup/index.html) (bolding mine):
Most ingenious game (again)
While Nintendo garnered a ton of buzz over its unique controller (see below), the most original game once again goes to Electronic Arts' "Spore" designed by legendary game maker Will Wright (The Sims, SimCity).
[...]
Too bad this unique time waster won't be out until mid-to-late 2007.

I don't know about that. Spore won a handful of awards at E3. Granted, games are expected to improve from E3 time to release time, but I think it will appease most of the public at this stage, though not us. Then again, most of us would kill to get our hands in a creature editor at this point. Of course, I'm factoring in that tribal, city, civ, and unicell stage are up-to-par with creature and such. So, it would be a dissapointment, but not too major.

I don't believe we've yet heard a date named by EA, so one can't really say it's been pushed back. The last estimate heard from Will/Maxis or EA is still April/May 07. Dates or guesses from any other source should be ignored.

So, June 2007 even though E3 is at May? (And we already had Spore's last E3)
They will get a lot less hype than they should that way. I mean, no game should deserve being showed openly to the public only over a year before it's released, it should be a few months.

You mean this thread (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=4873.0)? That talk was from 2003, that's three years ago! In that talk WW said that they like to release the content tools 6 month prior to release, mainly to build up the community. Of course we don't know whether they will do it with Spore's tools, since they are very much part of the game. So, yeah you're right, all of this is speculation. But fun, eh?  :D

April 1st this year and May 13th 2011.

We honestly have no idea at all. It's pointless to speculate, because we can't get a good estimate.

Will Wright said before that he hoped to have it out later this year.

Look, we really have no idea. The thing about "not another E3" is hope on Will's part. The thing about the fiscal year is something we gleaned from a report. Either or both of those things are subject to change.

Quote from: Will Wright
We're saying that Spore is coming out in 2007. The message that we are getting from [Electronic Arts] corporate is "Don't screw it up," which is great. What they mean is, "Let's get it right." This will be the game's last E3.

Thats what credit cards are good for. But like me, if you have one you should forget about it. So then you only spend money with it when things become most dire, like the release of Spore.

nononono, you got it all wrong. That would be the first installment of playing. I would then take a 10 minute break during which I would eat 26 days's worth of food and sleep for about half an hour. THEN I'd go back and keep playing.

It's like hibernation. He must eat three times his weight in chex mix and pepsi for the long harsh winter... i mean spore gameplay ahead that may last for months at a time. Research shows heart slows down to a near stop during this time period.

And the Mountain Dew-sicle. Cut open a can, put in a popsicle stick, freeze it. That's it.

Also, big question here... Just WHAT is the DS version doing out first!? If it's true and the DS version is coming out sooner, I'm buying it all the same because, well, it's Spore portable. However, if it comes out earlier, I'll be angry for the sheer obvious reason that it's SUCH a stupid thing to do! Degraded graphics, poorer gameplay, yes, let's release that one first... Definitely...
Title: Re: SPORE RELEASE ALERT
Post by: DaMuncha on November 20, 2006, 05:15:00 am
Nah, that wouldnt work AT ALL. What would happen is as the Mountain Dew is freezing all the CO2 tries to excape and it over flows or bursts out of the can or bottle. Then the fizzy drink is flat and tastes like crap. I know, when I was in high school some idiot put a large box of V in the freezer and thats what happened. Flat V doesnt taste very good.

if this is right (which i dont think it is) then why the hell is it coming out on DS first, everthing weve seen so far is on PC so why would it go to DS first, ok thats kind of my agrument for why it is not true. OH well if i dont listen to it it won't affect me. If it does come out on DS i am defeintly getting one, there cheap now anyway.

If they bring it out on DS, we'll get a smaller version of spore?

maybe only the Cell Game on DS?

If so it means Maxis would have finished the Cell Game.

This could mean EA are also going to do that with the other parts of the game. Release them all seperately as expansion packs. We all know EA will do this, as they did it with the Sims 2. Honestly I went to 2 gaming stores today when I went shopping. In each store there is an entire shelf didicated to the many Sims 2 ex packs that are allready out. Sims 2 is still selling for $99 and the ex packs are all from $30 - $50. I dont want to buy a shelf full of ex packs to get the full Spore experience. If EA does that I will not be buying Spore, no matter how much I want it. Valve is also doing this now with the Half Life 2 story.

If they release the DS and PC version at the same time, I'm happy. I'd buy it on the DS so I could play it in between classes, and then come home to play it on PC.

After all, I'm an addict.
