Whats up with the sudden spore client update

Unread post by sporein123 »

This make no sense a game EA has not updated in 10 years all of the sudden they care about the client
now i am not complianing but really when did they start caring about a game that is basically been dead for 10 years.

does anyone else find it kind of strange that EA suddenly updates the client on a game they have been ignorant of for 10 years.

I have no hopes of a revival of the game regardless of the way it sounds.

The only thing updated with the client is the server connectivity. Physical copies of SPORE are obsolete now.

It is still odd because why would you care about server connectivity on a game you don't update

and I do use disk version but I have never gotten the login thing to work I suspect its pirated but I don't know.
so it does not really matter to me one way or another.

They were legally obligated to either give us 30 days' warning for a shutdown or keep the servers up. I guess Spore was selling well enough to justify the price of updating it...

Actually no, they pulled it from store shelves and digital distributors several years earlier.
