Too soon, I can tell you that much.

I check the GDC videos regularly and I'm pretty sure I watched the spore presentation right about when it was released.

I heard about it late Q3 last year. Can't remember when though. A local newspaper actually wrote about it, and they ahd a kickass picture too(which they had drawn). I've frantically been trying to find it, but no luck so far...

I heard about it on penny arcade, went to a gamespot forum and saw gamingsteve advertising his site 2 days after the creation of the forums we are now inhabiting :D
I survived the flood of 2008 and all I got was this crappy homelessness.

I first heard about it in a newsweek article in last May or June, but joined the forums later on.

I heard about this game about a week or so ago.  I see there are now two votes for January so I don't feel too bad.

Imagine all the people who still don't know about it! When those people see it at E3 for the first time, it'll blow their minds. By the time you get there, you should already be "used" to it, I know I already am. I'm sure we'll get a ton of new info, but I won't be surprised into utter shock when I see it.

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around this whole thing so even after one week the "Wow" factor is still there for me, but I understand what your getting at.
I do wonder what sort of reception this will receive.
