Spore Origins has arrived - but...

I see Spore Origins has come to the iPod Classic:

Wasn't that supposed to be coming to the iPod Touch / iPhone?

Then wouldn't this be better fitted to the iPod Games forum? Who says EA can't milk it and release it for both iPod Touch and traditional iPods? You should know by now that EA tend to develop for every platform in existence, as long as they can turn a profit.

I expect we'll be seeing the touch version very shortly.

There is one thing that concerns iPhones: Previous demos of Spore for iPhone has been criticized for being too feature-free. However, the description of the iPod version on iTunes states that you can "Battle your friends' spores by importing them into your iPod via the Sporepedia website".

This might be a sign of some otherwise unmentioned features in the iPhone version. (Or at least, we can hope.)

It doesn't matter now anyway, as the game has been pulled!
It's no longer available on the iTunes Store.
Apparently a lot of users were having trouble getting the game to run...

Hmm... that could be one strategy: test it on a smaller, less popular platform before bringing it to the (iPhone) masses? Not a bad idea but not a great one either.

Either way, I hope the iPhone version is more stable.
