The latest Spore controversy
comes courtesy of some false information printed in the game's manual. The Consumerist
reports that despite the game's manual stating purchasers "may have multiple Spore
accounts for each installation of the game," they only have one. An EA forum rep stated that the information was a "misprint and will be corrected in future printings of the manual."Spore
has been lambasted in Amazon.com's user review section for its "draconian DRM
" measures. There's no clear indication whether Spore
was originally meant to allow for more than one account -- did DRM measures put the kibosh on that plan?
