Lucy Bradshaw over 1 account per spel

Gisteren veel onrust over een 'typfout' in de handleiding van Spore (zie dit bericht) en nu moet zelfs Senior Producer Lucy Bradshaw er aan te pas komen om op het US Spore forum de onrust en onduidelijk weg te nemen:
I want to apologize for the confusion surrounding access to the online features of Spore. Most of the confusion is stemming from our own mistake in the game manual that states that you can have multiple Spore accounts for each installation of the game. This is incorrect. The information that appears on the box is correct; only one unique Spore account and Screen Name/Persona can be created with each copy of the product. We will correct this information in future iterations of the manual.

I have noted that there are a few other misunderstandings that I hope to clarify here:
• To access Spore’s online features, you will need to register online and create a Spore Screen Name/Persona.
• If you already have an account, you will only need to Login using that account information and create a Spore Screen Name/Persona.
• Only one Spore Screen Name/Person can be created with a single copy of the game.
• You can play Spore offline, for this reason we have included the ability to play while not logged in.
• If you have installed your copy of Spore on multiple computers, your single account can be actively logged in up to 3 times simultaneously.
• Once you have a Spore account, you can log in with that account on any computer that has an install of any legitimate copy of Spore. On a single install it is possible for multiple users to switch back and forth between unique online Spore accounts. For this reason we have included a Log Out button in the Online Settings options labeled, Disconnect from Spore or change users. The different accounts will be playing in the same Galaxy, and will, therefore, share the same data folders.

Again, I apologize for the confusion and the mistaken information.


Klinkklare onzin dit allemaal over de typfout; tot de release heeft EA Spore altijd gepromoot als 'familie' game waar 3 leden van een gezin of 3 mensen in 1 huis ieder Spore konden spelen met hun eigen account en dus creatures.

En opeens is er nu die beperking? En met een flutsmoes erbij dat het een typfout is? Kom op EA: we zijn niet op ons achterhoofd gevallen!
