NFS Carbon control footage

Monday 20 November 2006
If you've been wondering how regular games - like Need for Speed Carbon, say - will work on Wii, then wonder no more. This new video gives you a glimpse of how the console's clever wireless controller can be used as a steering wheel stand in, with you twisting and turning it in your hands to wrap your car around the game's circuits. Hit the movies tab above for the footage.

Need for Speed Carbon on Wii will pull in alongside Nintendo's brand new console on 8 December. And, by the sound of it, the basic game is a solid outing for the series - so, as long as you can get your head in sync with the control method (helped by a very useful on-screen icon showing you the direction of your steering wheel), this motion-sensitive version should be a blast.
