EA’s UK PR manager, Jonathan Goddard has informed that for those who pre-order Spore that lives in the UK will be handed a free copy of the Creature Creator.  You lucky Brits!

“In the UK, anyone pre-ordering the full Spore game, due out on September 5, through either EA Store or via selected retailers (GAME and Zavvi) will get a disc containing 100 per cent of the CC (Creature Creator). The only cash they will part with is whatever the pre-order deposit is (typically a £5). This money is deducted from the retail price of Spore when it arrives in September, meaning that the full CC is to all intents and purposes free in the UK.”
