There will be 3 talks at the GDC spore realted, which means a ton of new content and porbably at least one more gameplay video.

Don't set your hopes too high. They sound more like design and programming seminars using Spore as an example. The news about Spore will probably be minimal untill E3.

Then again, after a year of no new information, we've resorted to staring at the Spore video, for bigfoot-style creature sightings, so even a new screenshot or two would be fantastic.

I disagree along with Will Wright there will be to developers from maxis that have already specified that they will talk about spore.

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what was going on. I used to get maybe 2 or 3 questions a day about Spore from random people (which I enjoyed answering between meetings). A few days ago that number shot up way into the double digits (about 1/2 my email now). I think I've tracked it back to here.

With this many it's impossible for me to answer it all and I feel like it's unfair for me to answer some but not others. If the volume drops back down hopefully I can go back to answering them.

I hope everyone understands... I imagine you'd rather get Spore sooner than have me answering emails all day.

Now I'm sure a long discussion will ensue over whether I'm really me (chuckle)

I wonder who'll offer the fishy stick this time.

So, have you seen SporeWiki?

I suppose the High Priest should be more formal than this.

Have I been slapped in the face with Will Wright, or have I just been the victim of a horrible joke? 
-Will Wright (not...me)
How about a photo-copied image of a letter in Mr. Wright's handwritting?

Either he's watching the thread and deciding how sane we are, or, as a certain unnamed source says, he's narcoleptic and has fallen asleep on the f5 key.

I knew this would happen...

Look, I'll email Steve next week (from the office, I'm at home now and don't have VPN on this machine) and confirm that this is indeed me.

I actually do read these forums quite a bit. There's great stuff here, you all would be surprised how much our dev team follows this forum,  but as you can imagine I just don't have the time to answer the millions of questions that come up. Bessides my PR people would go crazy if I did, they do all this negotiating with magazines about new info, etc... well anyway it gets very complicated.
