Spore A PS3 Console Exclusive?

Epic Games praised the PlayStation 3's propensity for user generated content, which is one of the biggest reasons why Unreal Tournament 3 debuted first on Sony's platform. And as the Spore-for-consoles rumor grows, this fact comes back into play.

Along with the game, something called the "Spore Creature Creator" will release, and that makes perfect sense. This is one game that will embrace the concept of user created content, which is why so many PC fans are anxiously awaiting its impending release on September 7. However, Spore could end up going to consoles as well...and given Microsoft's policy on user generated content, this could mean EA will have to pass on the Xbox 360 as a designated location for this promising title. The PS3 inherently allows for more possibilities in this area, and the idea of a Creature Creator would certainly fit best on Sony's next-gen machine. Of course, this is all little more than speculation - as sparked by Australian game site GamePlayer - but it's certainly something worth thinking about.

Despite the fact that multiplatform titles are the name of the game (pun intended) in this generation, there are differences between the consoles, and something like Spore, or UT3, can point out those differences. We'll have to see what happens, but for now, just consider it food for thought.

I don't think you can really call it exclusive to the PS3 if it's slated for the Wii...can you?

He made a good point. M$ doesn't seem to like user-generated content. It is plausible that it won't be making it to the 360 simply for this reason.

That being said, I won't be holding my breath. But it is plausible.

its gonna come out on the ps3 sooner or later. and us ps3 owners will benifit more coz Spore uses procedurally generated content and apparently tht's one of the strong points of the Cell. So i'm looking forward to this title in the near future.

BTW just out of curiosity, wat did Will Wright see in the Wii, for him to have such a high opinion of it. Coz from wat i see apart from the Motion controller there's nothing innovative in the Wii thts gonna benefit the gameplay of spore.

I think the only thing he saw in the Wii was the amount of people who have one. Therefore he can make billions of more money. Lol sry, I just hate the Wii so much.

I wasn't too particularly happy with UT3 anyways. Yes the user created content was awesome but the game was still missing its primary focus of the series. Multiplayer! I always believed UT games are always best played with others around you and not online. In my personal opinion, I'd rather have the 360 version because it does have split screen and supposively the PS3 version isn't getting that anytime soon.

But back to the point, I hope this game doesn't do the same thing and then is released for the 360 with something better. Would be sweet to have this on the console tho.

That would be sweet if it came out on the PS3. My computer unfortunately can't handle the creature creator so I was thinking I was going to miss out on this title. I guess it has something to do with Spore not being able to perform on Vista. In any case, if it came out on a console you know it would run correctly. Hopefully will be hearing more about this, and I'm sure I will hear about it first here. Keep up the great work Ben and Arnold!

I prefer to play on my PS3 rather than a computer so it would be cool if I could play this one.

I've never been into games like Spore or The Sims, so i'll probably not be getting this one. Either way it's nice to see the possibility of the PS3 having it for the people who do enjoy these games.

It's coming to the DS, so I hope we'll be seeing it for the workhorse consoles as well. I'd even be happy with it for PSP! (the remote play possibilities are huge when you think about it!)
