Spore coming to Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 says game creator Will Wright

Spore screenshotAfter EA was previously planning Spore to go from PC to handhelds. In an interview this week Spore creator Will Wright was quoted as saying:

We’re looking at all the platforms for Spore, because we’re thinking about Spore as a franchise, not as a PC game. We’re going to do the PC game first, but really, what we’re trying to launch is an entire franchise that will be all across platforms.”

  • Pre-Order Spore on PC“It will probably take very different forms depending on the platforms. We might even pull out parts of the game, so you might be playing part of the game on a handheld platform, you might be playing the entire game but maybe more avatar-based on a console. The consoles are getting kind of different now, I think there’s a really interesting distinction between the Wii and the Xbox 360 and PS3. Something like the Wii offers a lot of interesting creative opportunities for the editors, with the controller.”

    He closed off by saying: “That’s been one of the ongoing problems with consoles: they don’t have a mouse. The mouse is a very good random-access device for putting on the screen; a console controller really makes you want the game avatar-based, so you move on character — that’s why RTS games suck on consoles. With Spore, about half the game is avatar-based already — the creature game and the space game — and it would be pretty easy for us to make the intermediate levels avatar-based, so from the beginning, we thought about how we could move Spore to platforms including consoles.”

    Coming in 2008, here’s Spore’s fun-looking trailer:

      OMG!!!!! on xbox 360 !!!!! 😀 !!!!! that soo cool !!!! plss doo that !!

    • James Osbourne

      please put spore on ps3. i would love it too. or at least bring this technology to the ps3 and xbox systems. i’ve heard it’s an evolution in gaming. i’m always looking to buy the newest in gaming having bought l.a. noire for the facial movement technology that allows you to tell if someone is lying or telling the truth. this spore technology is too intriguing to be left alone on either pc or wii. but, if you only have a limited budget like i have, then it’s understandable. just saying you’ll get at least one sale if it comes to ps3. sorry for being a dingus but it really looks like a cool game.

      They said there having problems with hand helds console and comps. Then why not make a universal mouse that can be used only for spores and maybe that’ll spark up ideas maybe idk. I really really really wanna play this game I never had yet but I hear alll the good stuff like graphics how make your own world and its inhabitants . So please keep up the good work fellas and ladies.
