Spore creator Will Wright has spoken and it looks like Wii is his console of choice for the upcoming god game that will enable players to create their own universe from the microorganism on up.
Spong has Wright quoted as saying “I think there’s a really interesting distinction between the Wii and the Xbox 360 and PS3. Something like the Wii offers a lot of interesting creative opportunities for the editors, with the controller.”
Wright has also said the game will be a PC game first and foremost, but it is expected to be a “franchise” that will run across platforms. The game might take on different forms, depending on the console. The handheld consoles, for example, might only offer a part of the game.
Regardless of how it falls out in the end, Wright’s Spore is considered the most highly anticipated game going. It’s stolen the show at two E3s in a row and it has even garnered attention from some serious Hollywood celebs.
For those who don’t know, Wright is the legendary creator of The Sims. Spore was first revealed in 2005 and has continued to gain buzz momentum ever since. There’s been so much buzz, in fact, it’s sometimes hard to remember the game hasn’t even hit retailers yet, and it won’t until some time in 2007.
If the money shelled out to play Spore once it hit retailers matches the buzz, the game will be an instant success. And with Wright behind the wheel, it’s likely the title will be worth every penny.
