    This is Maxis we're talking about. Expect a flood of expansions and addons.

    Yep.. Maxis.. this was expected.. not so soon though [​IMG]

    But if it's just a bunch of parts, why not release it as DLC? And 20 bucks for that? No way [​IMG]

    Yeah, I was going to call it an expansion in the title, but..well, considering how the Sims went with their "expansions"...

    There's not really a whole lot they can add to the game apart from this stuff. There's already fifty billion planets to explore in the Space phase, and even then, getting these parts would only benefit new games (unless you want to edit your Space creature, but it won't even matter then!).

    I expect no less than ten to fifteen add-on packs for Spore before Spore 2 comes out.

    More good news for you...fans.

    ...and a Space Stage pack as well.

    Remember earlier when I mentioned the whole add-on pack for the original Spore? Well, there's already a second one coming, and it's apparently an expansion to the weak Space stage. Apparently, being able to beam down to planets and undertake missions is the scope of this Space stage expansion, though I can't help but wonder why that wasn't a part of the game in the first place.

    Oh wait, now I know why. This is EA we're talking about.

    That second one looks very interesting, but I don't know if it's interesting enough for me to pay for it..
