"Europe is the priority for Spore"

Speaking exclusively to Eurogamer, Maxis's Patrick Buechner has explained why the game is to be released in Europe on 5th September, two days earlier than in the US.

Childishness aside, its great to finally see developers prioritise Europeans over other regions. I think that many gaming publishers underestimate how important Europe is to the gaming industry as a whole. We are the only market that doesnt show favouritism to a particular console or platform.

So, when the US is a priority they get the game 3 months before Europe... But when Europe is the priority we get it 2 days before!!

Damn it, I say delay the US launch by 3 months!
