[SOLUTION] Can't create Spore Account
If you have this problem after you buy it, and you probably have, go to http://www.ea.com/, make an origin account. This will let you request help from the EA staff.
Next, go to http://help.ea.com/.
Click on the "Help with a Game" button.
Search for Spore, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Contact Us".
Click your platform, click next and pick Billing/Purchasing from the topic list.

From there you can start a conversation from an EA support person. Talk to him/her about the problem and they'll correct any errors and fix the problems. After about 5 minutes, you can make a Spore account in the game and play it as much as you want! :D

Or you make an origin account and activate it over the origin client. (works without problems)
You can even deinstall origin after you created the account and activated the keys. (atleast it worked for me without problems this way)

If you don't get the option to start a conversation, set your language to "United States" at the top left of the EA help page and try again.

At first I only got the option to send them an email, and someone was going to reply "within 14 days" or something. Apparently they won't offer live chat to my native language, even in english.

The support person offered to activate spore on origin at first, but after I asked if he really couldn't make it work on steam he went on hold for a minute and then fixed it.

How? I tried to activate my steam code in origin, but it said it was already used!

Okay then i dont know. i was just saying how it worked for me. if steam is giving out the same codes or codes that could have been sold in retail packs the only option is to contact ea support.

I tried this before I contacted EA. It said my key was already in use. I saw a comment somewhere else that said this solution might work.

Spread the word!

I couldn't log into the Spore servers, despite giving the correct email/password, so I went to EA Customer live chat support and they fixed it in minutes. Now I can log in fine.

Just go here: http://www.ea.com/?websso=1 , make an account and log in with that. That simple. No Origin needed.

How do you mean? I tried adding the Sporeapp.exe file to my origin client, but it won't work.
What if Billing/Purchase does not appear in the topic section?
Does clicking "Report a Bug" work?

Can we register (create an account) for spore on Steam? I purchased Spore on steam and i don't know if we can create one, not only just Origin version. Any help?
