Maxis's Patrick Buechner has explained why Spore is to be released in Europe on September 5, two days earlier than in the US. Asked if Maxis was always aiming for a simultaneous release Buechner said, "Oh, absolutely. Europe probably represents about 60 per cent or more of our PC business, so getting it right in Europe is going to be a real focus over the next few months."
