Spore: Five Activations?


I hadn't tried activating Spore more than three times, but reader roBurky did. It happened like this:

roBurky: EA apparently changed the Spore DRM from 3 to 5 initial activations without telling anyone.
Jim: did you discover this yourself?
roBurky: Yeh. I installed on three computers, then contacted support to get more ready for when I'd need them
roBurky: Was told I still had two left. I pointed out that their support page said we only got three, and they thanked me for pointing it out and said they'd update it.
Jim: huh

Anyone else made the same discovery? (Extended RPS Spore discussion due next week!)
