Spore Owners limited to one account per copy

To be honest, I don't find this very surprising but Gamespy is reporting that in response to a post on the official EA forums by one of their representatives, it seems that you are only allowed to have one online account per copy of Spore. i.e. if you wanted to create multiple online accounts for different members of the family, you wouldn't be able to do so. Frankly, I don't see this as too much of an issue since you do have 6 game slots/planets you can use anyway from the start. The only problem is (1) you'd be limited to 1 or 2 civilizations and (2) if you don't trust the rest of your family to stuff up your civ :).

Nevertheless, it's another controversy to spark outrage with Spore. Tends to happen when a game is so heavily anticipated and you get a draconian publisher like EA on board... and there I was thinking they were finally changing for the better!
