Spore: galactic edition?

Asked by bmhit1991 (246points) September 1st, 2008

Does it have the same system requirements as the regular game, or slightly higher ones? And, here’s the big question: the box says “Mac” and “PC”. Does that mean that the disc inside to install it can be read on either system? I’m thinking about pre-ordering it today online, but I don’t want to get the one for PC and not be able to use it. Just trying to play it really safe….

The “galactic edition” has the same system requirements as the base version. It just has extra videos, and a poster (stuff like that makes it “galactic,” apparently). As long as your computer meets the base requirements, you should be ok.

Nowadays, CDs are all written in the same format; PCs/Macs can all read them harmoniously. When they say PC/Mac, they mean that the one disk will install Spore to a PC or Mac. The galactic edition will work in your PC just the same as the regular version.

Compatibility is not an issue here. Order away!

Spore is loaded on a DVD-ROM not a CD-ROM. We could only install it on the computer with the DVD player/reader. Just so you know.

DVD driver, I meant.

Very true, my gaffe. There is no way Spore would fit in 700 megs!
