Multiple Spore Accounts Issue?

A thread on EA's UK Spore Support Forum explores an issue with account creation in EA's just-released life simulation. Users are having difficulty creating more than one account for Spore, even though the manual states: "you may have multiple Spore accounts for each installation of the game." There are differing opinions about what EA is actually promising with that statement, with some suggesting that this may still require purchase of another copy of the game for a new CD key, with others feeling they are being deprived of a promised feature. According to one post one EA support rep said they were escalating this question to their supervisor, suggesting even EA support is not clear on how this should work. Thanks Stemot.

Actually, all reviews agree that the game is pretty much a collection of shallow minigames, that even the most developed phase (space) has its share of issues, and that the game doesn't live to the hype. They acknowledge those things at the same time they praise the idea itself, the content sharing concept, and the technical implementation - which are ultimately the aspects that are getting such high notes on reviews.

In short, it's Black & White all over again. Great concept, great technology, but not a good game.
