POLL: which spore pricing option will you choose?
« on: April 16, 2008, 02:12:04 pm »
I've never done a poll before, but for once im genuinely interested in what everyone as a collective thinks about the pricing plans.  So, lets keep it simple, where is your money going to go?

EDIT: i just wanted to point out the 60 dollar estimate on the retail game was just a guess based on no concrete information.

I made up the last option, as far as I know there is no collectors edition.

Explanation:

Just to clear up some issues some people are having with this here are some facts:

- Creature Creator Trial will have 25% of all parts available and allows you to build as many creatures as you want.
- Creature Creator Full will have 100% parts available and you can also make as many as you want.
- Creatures you make in both versions will be able to be imported into the game when it's released.
- You will be able to see other peoples creatures on Sporepedia with the Creature Creator which means Sporepedia will be up and running when this is released.
- The version that comes in the SimCity box is the full version which will also be available for purchase separately.
- All three of them (Trial version, Full version and the SimCity package) will be released on the same day.
I couldn't find a reference in this thread, but those facts are from the mouth of Patrick Buechner in an interview with IGN.



I know theres another thread about this stuff, but I want to see where people intend to put their money, not so much what they think about it.

I'll go for the free option.
Even with 25% the minimal amount of content that is surely enough to keep us mostly entertained until the release of the game.

I'll be paying for the $10 demo.  If there was a collector's edition, I would probably empty my wallet for that one too.  Otherwise, I'll of course have the full game on Sept. 7th, with a few days vacation afterwards.

Collectors edition all the way. I've waited too long to get impatient over some creature editor. I'll just sit it out...

I'm pretty sure the price for the final game will be $50 not $60. 

I'm getting the free demo.  Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?

I'll buy the full creature editor prior to release and then the Collectors Edition if it comes out at release time, otherwise I'll just buy the normal retail game.

Buying the cow involves waiting for the milk, and I'm thirsty now.

The free demo is the milk.  The Complete version is the cow.  And Spore is the farm, which includes the cows, goats, sheep, crops, silos, barns, threshers, milking machines, and the farmer's wife.  All for the price of five cows.  I'll gladly sip on my milk as I wait until the entire farm goes up for sale.   ;D

I'd buy the full demo, because A. I couldn't deal with only a small portion of the parts.  I want to play with the whole thing, and I want to get good at making these creatures before the game comes out, and B. because I'm going to be in school when Spore itself comes out, and I will have loads of work to do, so I want some free time to play with at least some part of it, and the only way to do that is get the demo.  Call me a sucka, I won't deny it.

As I said before, I won't be paying for a demo. The full game it'll be for me after tooling around in the free demo to see how things work.
