Spore "Creepy & Cute Parts Pack" Confirmed

DRM (and lawsuits) aside, Spore has sold a ton of copies. In late September Electronic Arts (EA) said it had already sold 1 million copies (combined PC, Mac and Nintendo DS) sales since shipping on September 7th, despite DRM "Protest Creatures" and critical end user reviews at stores like Amazon.com.

Slightly over a week ago listings for something appeared at both Amazon.com (since removed) and GameStop appeared, showing a add-on pack called the Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack. There was a ship date of November 18th, but no additional info, and no word from EA about it.

Showing up on the EA Store as a pre-order is pretty good confirmation, however. And, with that listing on the EA Store, we get a look at the box, and confirmation of both the price ($19.99, as GameStop listed) and the date of November 18th.

So, for 40% of the price of the original game ($49.99) what are you going to get? Still no information on the EA site; perhaps just more creature parts?

Now if we could just get some dates for Diablo III and Starcraft 2 we'd be happy.

One side of me says "Great EA is going to milk this as bad as The Sims" The other side of me says "OH MY GOD More parts, more parts!!!"

2/5ths more DRM?

Too bad EA hasn’t fully embraced trusting its customers more by removing DRM & SecuROM from Spore. Another blog noted Pete Hines has announced that Fallout 3 will ship with little to no DRM whatsoever because they want to trust their paying customers.
