Thanks to MTV’s impressions on Spore Origins for the iPod, I now know how the cell creatures will work with the Sporepedia.

EA claims you’ll even be able to tap into the Sporepedia index of user-created creatures. So is this version of “Spore” worth five bucks?

Unfortunately, the Sporepedia option isn’t possible yet. iPod “Spore” points users to EA’s mobile website, which still features a “coming soon” tag. The idea is you’ll register with EA and gain the ability to download user-made creatures to your own iPod. Their unique, customized characteristics are deduced with a “DNA Code.”

Does anyone have a spare iPod that can run this game?  I’d love to get my hands on it!
