It is Darkspore, notSspore (but it wasn't an option). I have been playing Darkspore for well over a year without an issue. Starting last week when I try to login, I get an error (no number or description) and then when I retry a second time I receive a 73003 error. I have noticed a number of people posting the same issue on both the Steam forums and the Darkspore forums. Unless you have released a new patch, nothing has changed on my end. There have been no new hardware or software changes. I do think there is a problem on your server. Can you please look into it and get back to me?
Also, I have tried it on both my desktop and laptop (both worked before last week) and on my network and a friend's network, so please don't give me the normal check your network settings 'routine'.

I am also experiencing this problem. I bought Darkspore just yesterday in store. I installed it today and it installed just fine but to actually PLAY the game you need to LOG IN with an existing EA account or REGISTER a new "EA account" (which is now officially called Origin). I already have an EA/Origin email account so I tried logging into the game on start up and it pops up with that message you stated (the error 73003 thing)... but this is where it gets out of hand and extremely stupid...
I then went to go see if I could log in via the Darkspore website and I get this message "Error! invalid credentials." So I can't even log into the website either? Now listen to this. When I go to REGISTER a completely new EA/Origin thing via the Darkspore website it pops up with this message; "The system encountered an error while processing the request."
So I now have a game I simply CANNOT PLAY at all what so ever because the game requires you to have an already existing EA/Origin account/email/ID thing or to make a new one.... WHICH YOU CAN'T BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK. This is extremely disappointing on EA's behalf...

I also cant get into the website or the game, i know my ea account is working as i can still get into my other games (ME3 and most wanted) but i cant even log into the website even after changing my password multiple times. this is quite frankly unacceptable, if i buy a game i want to play it.
