"Spore" is coming to more than the PC and Mac in September, but the experience is - a little -- limited. EA wants to fix that.
One of the big draws of "Spore" is the potentially unlimited supply of user-generated content from the Sporepedia. You can't do that on the iPhone, mobile or DS versions of "Spore." Not yet, anyway.
While checking out the minimalist iPhone version at E3 (it's only the amoeba stage), I frowned at the lack of interoperability with the rest of the "Spore" universe. A nearby Electronic Arts representative told me the developers are looking into the issue.
There's no universal connection of all "Spore" games yet, but the creators' intention is for every version of "Spore" to access and use the content from the same, single Sporepedia. That isn't happening with the first wave of "Spore" spin-offs, albeit the iPhone version could be patched to include such functionality.
Readers, is the ability to export your "Spore" creations, regardless of platform, important to you?
