You're forgetting that not everyone's life revolves around spore. Most people don't even know that the editor is out (even the newsletter only came today and not everyone's signed up for it ether). It's been only 2 days since launch, some people didn't have time to check it out yet, others don't even want to play the demo (it's only a very limited demo, why should they play a demo of a game they know they will buy?) Some people don't even know that spore exists yet...
These numbers don't represent the number of people who will buy spore. The number of creatures created is remarkable, it has been only 2 days and already 343,593 creatures! You will never even see all of them!

By that same token, not everyones life revolved around Grand Theft Auto, yet it still managed to pull in 4.2 million sales in a day. 
I'm not a gamer; I don't even own a console or much more than three games. Still I've played GTA IV and knew exactly which date it came out, it just spreads by word of mouth because it's become so popular.
Peoples lives may not revolve around it, but it's just one of those must-have games that everybody knows about.

Because everyone who is potentially interested in GTA, already waited for GTA IV.
They managed to pull  4.2 million sales in the first day, 2 million the second day, a million the next week, and now almost no one buys GTA IV anymore.

But Spore wasn't found by its full fanbase yet.
Now a "few" hc gamers became interested due to the demo release. They will talk about it to others. Others will download it. They will talk about it to others.

Around September, there will be a million fans who will buy it at the first day.
And even after that, it will spread like.... spores.  ;)

Maybe the Sporons are the ones that got dumbed down?  ;D

lol, someone attempts to attack spore, and everybody gets technical on em,  spore has such dedicated fans, and isnt even out yet.
I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed there would be no more war

It's only a matter of time before Sporepedia has a highpopulation than the Earth, and when that day comes, there will be much rejoicing.

I also assume that there will be a lot of people that only create one or 2 creatures, untill they get their creature perfectly, or find one  they really get atachet to.

I notice that , alot of people who come from this forum and use the cc are using this in an artistic way to make many creatures, to expose creativity. It's more about an art form, while for other people it will be more about creating a pet.

I see art as both fun and artistic. However making creatures just for the fun of it is great too.
