Looks like today has been an exciting day for Spore Origins.  It’s release on iTunes yesterday was a week and a half in advance, it has been found to cause lock-up issues with iPods running older versions of software, and despite the people (MTV, iLounge) giving impressions, been pulled from the iTunes store today. 

It’s more than likely pulled due to the lock-up error.  No idea when they will fix it to reupload it…hopefully they can solve the problem before the real launch on September 7th!
