It looks like Spore is scheduled to come out for the DS in March 2007, according to EB games preorder.

1st of February for the PC version... <sigh> It would have been a cool christmas present.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

i haven't trusted EB games', let alone any game shop's, release list. ever.

well take that back, i used to trust them. you know, that this or that game was to be released this or that day. but often i found that even preorders, where the game was coming out tuesday, would have the game coming to the store some other indiscriminate day.

so, as you can tell, i've become quite skeptical of any game release date from any retailer. ever.

My bet is on the DS game being a Spore card game thing. ya know?.. GBA memory card thing or wireless computer connections or something to get the cards you've gotten in the computer version, ya know?.. but that's my bet anyway. (DS = cards.)

Last I checked, the PSP has a greater fascination with cards than the DS does.

It would be nice if they could figure out a way to just download your PC creation into your DS kinda like a virtual pet. But regardless, Spore on DS can be very interesting.

With the whole trading card mechanic for storing info for your creations and such, I could see cell phone applications taking advantage of this feature. Combined with Live Anywhere, it'd be great if you could carry your "Card Deck" around and trade it with other people through your cell phone.

As for DS, if the port is quite faithful to the PC version, a nice feature to have would be trading these decks through a local wireless function similar to Nintendog's "Bark Mode" or Metroid Prime Hunters' "Hunter Radar." Walk around with your DS on and Spore in this mode, send and receive creature data, and when you get back into the game you have a whole load of new content. If they can maintain the small (3 kb) creature data sizes for the DS port, this would be a very cool feature to add.

In regards to downloading your creations from the PC to the DS, maybe the homebrew development scene could come up with some sort of editing program. However, I wouldn't know if that's actually feasibile and what kind of data would be stored in the creature data files that could be altered.

Wouldn't it make more sense for Spore on PSP to store content. 'Cause you can plug the USB into the PSP and save creature memory on the memory card.

But it'd also make more sense to use the DS' touch screen to control the game than the PSP's gamepad.

I just hope it doesnt turn out like crap like all of Maxis' PC-to-console ports.

I've checked their site today and they've removed the DS game *and* the box-art. And the date's different too..

Looks like EB does month first, so June.  However, that is EBgames best guess and shouldn't really be considered official.  There have been many dates thrown around by retail webpages.

They said that it would be the game last E3 didn't they?

You'll never know why.

i realy hope the ds version, or the console versions, or whatever aren't just some stupid card game or storage devise. i'd like it to be almost the actual game, because i can't get a new computer :'(.
