Will Wright, the legend of PC gaming, is working on the much-anticipated PC game "Spore", which gives you complete control of an entire universe. Already known as a PC game, Wright recently made comments that would suggest that the game will make its way to other platforms as well.

"We're looking at all the platforms for Spore, because we're thinking about Spore as a franchise, not as a PC game. We're going to do the PC game first, but really, what we're trying to launch is an entire franchise that will be all across platforms," said Wright, in an interview.He went even more in-depth with the specific consoles that he's thinking about: "The consoles are getting kind of different now - I think there's a really interesting distinction between the Wii and the Xbox 360 and PS3. Something like the Wii offers a lot of interesting creative opportunities for the editors, with the controller," he said.

Wright's best-known PC franchise, The Sims, made its way to the GBA as well as the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube, with sales numbers not even coming close to the blockbuster success of the PC version. But obviously, Wright is committed to expanding his gaming audience to more than just PC gamers. It'll be interesting to see how Spore, a game that relies heavily on point-and-click actions, will fare on the next-gen consoles.
