No online Carbon for Wii

Need for Speed Carbon, the latest in publisher EA's street-racing series, will not be playable online for Nintendo's new console, Wii.

NFS Carbon will support online play for the PS2, Xbox, PS3 and 360, but won't be available to Wii owners, according to Game Informer magazine.

It has also come to light that Carbon will not make use the motion sensing capabilities of either the Wii remote or the PS3 "tilt" controller. EA apparently has concerns over gamer fatigue, what with will all the hand-waving. And we can't have out-of-breath gamers, now, can we?
