The perennial E3 game of the year is finally about to relelase (it’s really going to be out this September, folks), and as expected, the game will release in both a standard and a collector’s edition. The collector’s edition of Spore is being called Spore: Galactic Edition, and will have bonus content, in addition to a stylish packaging. The bonus content includes:
- ‘Making of Spore’ DVD video
- ‘The Human Toolkit’ DVD video, by National Geographic
- ‘The Art of Spore’ hardback mini-book
- Fold-out Spore poster
- Premium 100-page Galactic Handbook
I don’t know if I’m willing to pay the $79.99 asking price for this edition, but I’m sure the making of DVD has to be pretty interesting. Will Wright is fascinating, and any additional glimpses into his process for game design has got to be worth your time and (possibly) money.
