i think its pretty amazing that 1/3 of voters went for the collectors edition, even though none has been anounced.  I had no idea a good chunck of fans went for that.

For those who don't want to vote, it would be nice to be able to see the results without voting.

wait, do you think we'll be able to see who voted for what, and we'll ridicule you for your choice? Because otherwise I see no reason not to vote.
a: We wouldn't. (well, i wouldn't)
b: You don't see who voted for what. Or who voted at all. Just numbers.

There needs to be an option for OTHER.....

In my case OTHER is get the $10.00 SCC then buy the game itself later on.

i agree. For me it would be $10 editor + collectors edition.

@ happydan20 and Gungnir:

I'm just thinking of those who don't like to register or log in (myself included on the latter one sometimes)...

By the way, I voted for the free demo.  It impresses me that some people would just jump right to the $10 demo when you can demo the $10 demo with the free demo first.  I guess that's what separates the fans from the Fanatics.  :)

I've been hoping the $10 Demo will come with a $10 rebate card that you could redeem with proof of purchase of the full retail release.  That seems like a decent compromise: customers won't feel like they're paying $10 for something they'll be paying for again later and EA will still make a lot of extra money because less then 10% of consumers remember/bother with rebate cards anyway.

I'm not saying, or even expecting, that to happen, but I can hope.

Slarti, i don't think you should get your hopes up. If they were to implement rebate cards, they would face an insurmountable wall of problems. First they would need to convince all of their distributors to implement the cards into their own internal sales system, then they would need to cheat-proof it so noone copies the rebate cards or in any way misuse the cards in any possible way.
These too factors would be sufficient enough to discard the idea, since it would cost more than it would benefit EA.

the reason i required a person to vote to see the results, is because its demands interaction.  I see polls on websites and i think my choice to myself and compare, so i know how that goes.

I'm super happy we've gone over 100 votes, i know they say you need 200 hundred for an accurate sample, of random people, but I'll take this.

It's looking pretty evenly split so far.

Definitely going to try out the free trial version of the creature creator - but I honestly don't see a point in buying that full version of the editor for 10$ when it's going to be incorporated into the retail version of Spore anyway.  :P

i didn't think of making an option for the $10 dollar demo and the collectors because there is no collectors edition.  I put it on as a joke because thee was an empty option.  I had no idea people would find the idea so popular since theres been no announcement about making one.

So thats why I didn't create that option.

Im taking the free demo and then the full game. I think having just 25% of the parts at first could be alright. Cause then when I play the real game there will be all these new cool parts and ill be like "AWESOMEE!!!"

Yeah, but then you'll be looking at people who bought it posting here on the forums creatures with the other 75% parts and you'll want it :P
