Electronic Arts has announced more than 1 million copies of Spore have been sold since the game launched on September 7th.

What's more, over 25 million player-created creatures, vehicles and buildings to the Sporepedia.

"Spore is a hit," said EA Games president Frank Gibeau, rather unnecessarily. "Will Wright's latest delivers an incredibly diverse game that appeals to casual gamers and the core alike."

But Star Wars fans, not so much - The Force Unleashed has already reached the 1.5 million sales mark in just five days. Perhaps Will Wright should put more Darth Vader in his games.
