    Not really a mac or pc gamer, BUT Spore intrigues me - i'm going to be buying a new macbook pro soon - has anyone seen the requirements for this game? are they out yet? I just want to be able to play Spore on the airplane when i'm traveling back and forth across the country for work :)

    An estimate for the requirements are:
    PC or Mac with: Intel Pentium4 2GHz
    512MB RAM
    Geforce4 or better
    (with pixel shader) ATI X300 or better
    The preferred CPU specifications (relating to number of cores, or 32/64 bit) is not yet known. It is speculated that the requirements will similar to the requirements of The Sims 2.
    The Windows/Mac version requirements are not yet known.

    I would think so. Sims 2 runs fine on a MacBook I've got just like yours. So if its spec'd about the same like the rumors are, then it will be fine.

    But Spore should be fairly graphically intensive... and the GMA 950 / x1300 won't do that well w/ it...

    I'm guessing that the version of Spore running on the iPhone more closely resembles the new DS version they demoed recently than the full PC version.
    As for the PC version, if it's anything like Sims2, the graphics aren't nearly as intense as the computation. It's one of the few games that taxes the CPU as much as the GPU.

    Spore is basically about designing your own species and "study" them in different parts of evolution, right? From what I have read I don't really see any "thrill" or goal in the game.

    You're one of those people that never saw the appeal of Sim City either, aren't you. :p
