Electronic Arts has denied that a Need For Speed: Carbon release date posted in error on its press website reflects the launch timing for the Nintendo Wii.
Earlier there was much excitement when the European date for several versions of Carbon went up as November 3rd. The PlayStation 3 version was left as "TBC", but the Wii was included with the rest.
"The date was put there by mistake and it is now listed as 4th Qtr 06. We will make an announcement shortly and with the US already confirming their date we expect to be around the same time but it's still TBC," an EA representative told us this afternoon.
"Naturally it goes without saying the Wii release date was also an error and not an insight into the console's launch," he added, having clearly noticed what we were really interested in.
Nintendo has previously said that the Wii will be released in the fourth quarter of 2006, and that the actual date will be announced in September.
