Meanwhile, “Sims 2” expansion after “Sims 2” expansion gets cranked out, but Maxis still can’t get “Spore” finished and out the door – which is a shame, because the concept looks great. Where else does the player get to shepherd the history of an entire species, from microbes to space travel?

Release date? Who knows?

I have to completely disagree with the above statement.  You can’t classify Spore as a game with an inconsistent release date….It never had one until now!  If it does get pushed back from September 7th, then you have a right to complain about inconsistentancy.  Before the date was announced, it’s release date was set as To Be Announced (TBA).
