This is my first post here at Spore.com...I just hope that my little buzzing added to everyone else's actually makes EA pay attention.
I am disabled and on a very strict budget. I buy maybe one game a year (and usually one of the cheap $10 games that are already years old) but when I heard about Spore about a year and a half ago I began saving my pennies each month...and I do mean that literally. Sometimes I'd only be able to put aside less than a dollar toward my Spore fund. When the game came out I had just enough saved up to buy it. My significant other of seven years was also interested in playing the game, and she normally HATES video games, so this seemed like a wise purchase.
Well, despite some features that I immediately saw could use some upgrading/revamping (and assumed they would in future patches/expansions/Spore2), I was quite pleased with the game...until the inevitable trying to register my girlfriend. I'm sure you've heard many times over how upset people are when their family members couldn't play their "own" game...well, just add my girlfriend to the list.
Please fix this issue EA so that my girlfriend, who works full-time (since I'm unable to work) and goes to school full-time in order to try to provide a better life for us can play this game she was looking forward to. Heck, at this point I'd be happy if I could unregister my name to this seriel code and register hers.
If you did so, thank you for listening. If not, buzz buzz buzz.
