Spore - One Account Per Household

The EA Forums have a confirmation that only one account can be created in Spore per purchased copy, in spite of the game's manual saying otherwise, an issue first reported here last week (story). According to Violet from EA, the manual for the just-released life simulation has a misprint: "That section in the manual was a misprint and will be corrected in future printings of the manual. There is one Spore registration/account per game/serial code so you are correct in that you cannot make multiple accounts at this time." She does say she will raise this topic with the powers that be: "I have sent your guys' feedback to the game team though since I can understand the desire to share a game on a system that you entire family uses." Thanks Consumerist/Digg/Ant.

Both my nephews(age 8 and 12) and myself are bored of the game already after 2 days.

I bought 1 copy and cracked it for my nephews machines (we live in the same house) but I still feel ripped off.

I guess it depends on how you look at it. I've played Spore for about 5 hours so far, and will likely play it for at least 8 more. That makes my total entertainment value about $55 for 13 hours. Or about $4.25 an hour. Considering I spent around $65 for Mass Effect, and played it for 25 or so ($2.60 per hour), Spore was definitely more expensive. But compared to a movie at $8.50 for 2 hours, it was about right. And compared to Gears of War at $65 for 10 hours, it was a bargain (I generally dislike console competitive multiplayer).
