Maxis: Spore Doesn't Need Demo, Does Need DRM

Eurogamer has word from Maxis that there will be no demo for Spore, the now-gold life simulation, quoting executive producer Lucy Bradshaw, who also told them "yes, we'll add to the experience," when asked about expansions, but also mentioned plans to eventually distribute the flora editor that was axed from the game. She also addresses the game's controversial DRM scheme, saying

"We do have copy protection, it is a necessary part of our biz, but we've worked to make it something that does not punish the legit owners," Bradshaw said.

"You need to authenticate once at the first install. This happens online. You can install on three separate computers and you do need to register for the online features."

...that these will be no demo for Spore,...
Blue has been hittin the sauce again. Worry not, you're in good company; cheers!

Not an unexpected move, I mean it is being put out by EA. Not that it isn't disappointing, I suppose the true measure will be how over the top it is *insert ED-209*. I can only assume the flora editor and any other improvements will be expansion packs or micro transactions. Sorry EA, but these teats are not for milkin. SPORE promised a revolutionary experince, but the closer it get to launch the more it sounds like you'll have to pay for every inch of it, one ground breaking stroke at a time.
