You don't need to buy another copy. If you use all your installs you can call EA and they'll raise your limit.

That will work now, but what about in 2-3 years time? 5? 10?

Seems to me that if you're going to go down the buy and pirate route it's best to do it when the game comes out and there are lots of copies around rather than trying to hunt it down in 5 years time.

And if you think that's an unlikely prospect think about how often we get posts from people having problems trying to install retail FS1.

That must be why your tag is "easily fooled"

No one becomes depraved all at once.

I followed Snipes quite wide and far,
And he led us to an unknown star,
But as soon as I surveyed the scene,
A great Sathanas did fill my screen,
As it rushed forward for a jump,
The both of us seemed destined to bump,
Until I heard Snipes, not too quiet,
“Dive, Dive!! Hit your burners, pilot!!!!” -Trayus

It's a fair point, but I'd expect when sales aren't really an issue any more in a year or two's time, the install limit will be removed entirely. That's what happened with Bioshock, the other game with install limits that people shat a brick about.

I don't have a problem with people buying then pirating it when it's released. I'm just trying to clear up misconceptions about the system EA has in place. It really bothers me when people get all high and mighty and decide to boycott a game, especially a relatively experimental one like this, because of copy-protection. Except in extreme cases like StarForce, it only compounds the problem.

Regarding your last point, I don't think the situations are comparable. Volition has never been all that major a developer, and FS1 was released before the advent of digital paid downloads. Hunting Spore down won't really be an issue, assuming EA doesn't go belly-up any time soon, and since in all likelyhood we'll be seeing expansion packs down the line it's in EA's interest to maintain support for the game.

My point is that it's always easier to track down a pirate copy of a game when it's newly released than it is after a few years. More people seeding for one thing.

That's very true. If Spore finds its way onto one of the three main consoles. I'll buy that instead of a pc copy. That's also true.

That has nothing to do with it, I have never seen a hi-res Shivan head. I always thought it was a destroyer or something.

On the main screen (the galaxy), click on the bottom left corner (not the menu) and fling the screen to the right. Then change your pants.  :lol:

Shacknews had an article a while back that listed some five or six phallic creatures.

I simply love Spore. I´m going to buy the full Version of the CC by tomorrow. The "extended" Trial Version, hooked me up for over an Week...time to get back to my Mod... ;)

For anyone having Problems with the CC not starting...try to install it without the EA Download Manager...that should work. Didn´t made a Shivan yet, but if you wanna see some of my Creatures go here...

Same, except I'm going to buy a copy, and then pirate the damned thing.

Sorry to say. Not only will your Spore Copy be limited to three Installations, also anyone using a pirated Version with the same serial, will get banned from Sporepedia. And without Sporepedia, this Game is just senseless.

If they buy a copy before pirating they'll have a legit serial, though. So that's not a problem.

That whole 3-install thing is why I'm not buying it to be honest, they online verify the installation anyway, so why limit the number of times you can install a verified copy? What happens if the server goes down in the future? Are we all going to be left with very expensive coffee mats?

That whole thing really doesn't sit well with me, I'm all for game producers getting what they are worth, but not by treating the paying customers like ****.
