Spore Origins Lite Edition

I saw this while browsing the US iTunes Store and was wondering if it is out in any other countries? I am in Australia and want to try it before wasting $13 on a piece of . . . bad app. Don't say don't even bother because I want to try it. Is there any way I can get a US account without a) living there and b) having a US credit card

Thnx

Spore Origins Lite is not available in Australia. You will need to set up a US account.

Mactalk's.com.au forum has a thread on this: http://forums.mactalk.com.au/20/4582...ount-free.html

Then google to find a current free redemption code to establish the account.

EDIT: I should point out that you shouldn't buy iTunes gift cards on eBay, etc. If they have been purchased by the seller with a stolen credit card, then Apple will close your account and you will lose your purchases.

I can't answer your question, but the full version is good, it's $7.99 us though. it's worth that.

I don't know the answer to your question, but everyone who tried the demo and yen bought the game or vice versa said that the demo didn't do the game justice and made the game seem even worse... Sorry I'm not much help

Change countries and then use the Sign In option (top right of iTunes store) to sign in with the appropriate account for your current country.
