Why, Steam Users Can’t Create a Spore Account or Redeem a Game on Origin

Spore players since the first hour and yes this is really annoying. 

Steam users had more and more problems if they haven’t purchased the game directly from Origin. They don’t have direct access to online features, they cannot create a Spore account. Without any account it is practically impossible to play the game.

SPORE Maintenance

On Wednesday, 5th August at 11:00 AM Pacific (local times here), SPORE will be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance.

During this maintenance, SPORE.com and SPORE online features will be unavailable but SPORE will still be playable offline. We expect the downtime to take approximately 15 minutes.
