EA Maxis can stuff another achievement under their belts. As of 5:10 pm EST on April 30, the 100 millionth Spore creation was uploaded to the Sporepedia, the game's official library of user-generated content.
According to EA, this comes down to an average of more than 307,000 creations daily.
With the ongoing "Spore 100 Millionth Creation Promotion" sweepstakes, the player who created that 100 millionth upload could receive a NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT graphics card, Spore and the upcoming Spore Galactic Adventures expansion. Unfortunately for everyone else, there appears to be only one grand prize.
“This is a staggering milestone to have met in less than one year from the launch of Spore Creature Creator,” said Lucy Bradshaw, VP and General Manager at Maxis. “We continue to be astounded by the outrageous creations and incredible creativity that Spore players have poured into the Sporepedia, from lifelike animals to fantastical creatures and futuristic spaceships. We can’t wait to see the ingenuity our players reveal through the missions they create in Spore Galactic Adventures!”
Not that EA has any plans to quit ahead. In the coming months, the video game community can expect to see Spore Galactic Adventures on June 23 for PC and Mac, Spore Hero for the Wii, and Spore Hero Arena for Nintendo DS; both the Nintendo spin-offs will be available some time this fall.
So congratulations to whoever takes home that graphics card. I'm sure it will come in real handy when The Sims 3 comes out this summer.
