From the creators of The Sims comes Spore, where you evolve a single-celled organism into a galactic god whose personality and abilities are completely up to you. Then interact with other players' creatures-including ones made by celebrities! EA Games. PC/MAC, NDS…
I went to Amazon to give Spore a poor review for being a bad game with poor instruction, having a horrible EULA and the terrible DRM. When I arrived at the site I was surprised to see that Amazon had deleted all of the reviews.
Turns out that you are allowed to install Spore 3 times before you have to call customer service and beg for one final install. So if you shell out $50 for Spore you are basically renting it.
After 5 short days of the rating page being hit by anti-DRM reviews, Amazon removes them all.
Well I guess that's one way to control social media, just shut it down and turn it off.
Probably at the request of EA. Hey, instead of fixing the problems people have with your game, just silence them!
Finally! Release date is March 31, 2008.
More than one unhappy gamer has joined the rebel alliance against EA’s Spore, and voiced their opinion on Amazon’s customer review section of the game’s page.
One of the most anticipated games in years now sits on sale with a 1-star rating on Amazon.com. Why? Most people seem to hate the idea of "renting" SPORE, due to its choice of "draconian-like" DRM.
The DRM for the game utilizes securom which is essentially a virus that installs itself without warning when you install the game. There is no way to completely remove it without reformatting and it is constantly running in the background if not removed. This is actually a RENTAL, not a bought game because it only lets you install 3 times.
EA apparently made the decision to use an aggressive DRM on their hot title Spore. Amazon reviewers are taking note that the game is not worth buying if users are getting stuck with a rootkit like DRM on their systems. On top of that, the game apparently isn't that good after all the hype.
Availability: This item will be released on March 31, 2008. Pre-order now! See details. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.
The new video game "Spore" uses some Root kit-like DRM solutions to prevent privacy..uhm sorry I mean "piracy", of course. Seems like a lot of gamers don't like this fact, as you can see in the Comments at Amazon (1,325 and counting...)
EA Securom has many customers confused and frustrated over its DRM software and has the titles average review to 1/5
You had to buy her flowers, dinner, gifts, and candy. Tell her to return the favor and get you Spore. Ships 9/7 for $50, pre-order low price guarantee.

My favorite MMORPG Collector's Edition is on sale! Pretty good deal, considering even current players (like myself) can get the DVD version, a free month, and the DVD exclusive stuff. I look at it like buying a month and getting exclusive super powers/items (powerslide, VIP badge, cape of the four winds) for five bucks.

Take on the fight as the volatile Sergeant "Psycho" Sykes in a new parallel story taking place during the events of Crysis.

With the versatile powers of his Nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customizable weapons & vehicles at his disposal, Sykes will do whatever it takes to carry out his top-secret objective. Action on the other side of the island is more intense, the battles are fierce, and the mission protocol is no longer "Adapt to Survive". As Sergeant Sykes, now you must adapt to dominate the battle…
Amazon.com says that Crysis Warhead Includes Crysis Wars, an expanded new multiplayer experience with new online modes and 21 maps including seven all-new maps to battle it out against other players With Crysis' relative failure to grab multiplayer market share, Crytek could be using Crysis Wars to succeed where they failed. . .
After the fiasco that was Spore's not-so-amazing game play and archaic anti-piracy/spyware infested DRM, the people at EA got the message, this time they let you install it 5 times instead of just 3... Gamers respond by once again carpet bombing Amazon with one star reviews.

Amazon is allowing you to pre-order the expansion for World of Warcraft and indicates it will be out Oct 15, 2006. Does Amazon know something we don't?
