PC Users Can Download 99 Percent of Spore Today!

Holy Evolution, Batman! Pre-Load Almost All of Spore Today!

If you are counting down the minutes until you can start creating, evolving, and planning your galactic domination with Spore, you are not alone. I'm looking forward to hiding out in my apartment to watch my very own creatures perform a special tribal dance around a fire. I know, I'm a dork. Sue me.

So what can you do to maximize your waiting time until Spore is released on Sept. 7? Lucky PC users can download 99 percent of it today, that's what! EA announced yesterday that you can download the game to your PC now (minus that measly last one percent), so you can be one of the first to evolve from microorganism to interstellar cowboy on release day. And we all know how important that is for your gamer status! Since downloading the last chunk will take about 30 to 60 minutes, you can imagine how long it takes to install the other 99 percent — so plan accordingly. Unfortunately, Mac users will have to sit out another week before getting their hands on the title, but considering how much time you'll invest in playing, it will be well worth the wait!

Shocking.. I have to wait to get the newest of video games. Actually it used to take months if not years to get titles that were available on the PC for the Mac. So big picture, a week is nothing. I'm very excited :-)
