Interesting that they make a point of saying the release date is set. Wish they would tell us the source for this--EA or Amazon.com.

Neither March 3rd or 8th fall on a Tuesday, so probably not right. Sorry folks. The only days in March I'd believe are the 4th, 11th, 18th, or 25th.

The source must have been Amazon, it said preorder, probably seen there.

PS: Which leads me to believe it's not even set.

The Tuesdays in march are 4, 11, 18, and the 25th.  Many Dvds /CDs /games are released for retail on Tuesdays.  Although I could not find a concrete answer the general consensus seems that the reasoning behind this has something to do with sales figures being reported on Monday (thereby allowing for the most time for them to develop).  OR that some psychological tendencies point to a person being more willing to buy something in the middle of the weak. 
     
Personally I see absolutely no reason why a game cannot be released on a saturday (which the 8th is).  Many people go shopping on saturday.

I doubt it would be on tuesday. I would never go by what other video games are released on.

Why not? If an industry giant commonly releases games on tuesday then most likely they will continue to release games on tuesday.  Whether Will Wright turns it in tomorrow or not I would Imagine that date is accommodating for EA's financial situation.

I'm going to guess the author just googled "Spore release date" and when here then here.

Why would Wright choose to release it on a Saturday? EA is putting a titanic amount of money in, and they don't want to scare off investors with three-day market reports comparing to the week-long reports for all other games. It doesn't make sense.

I loved the end of that article:

Quote from: The Spectrum Online
Release dates aside, Spore promises to be one of the more fascinating releases of next year. The experimental, epic nature of the game will prove fatal to spare time nationwide. The gaming world should expect the average World of Warcraft addict to hang up the armor and buy a copy of The Origin of Species.
