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:
