No head-tracking in Boom Blox

Feature has been removed.

Remember back in February, when we reported you'd be able to play Wii title Boom Blox just by moving your head about? Well you won't.

It's not that we're liars. It's that EA's removed the feature from the game for mysterious reasons, as reported by Joystiq.

"Head-tracking was something we considered including as an Easter egg in Boom Blox," the company said. "However, we did not end up including it in the final version of the game." That explains everything.

For those who aren't familiar, Boom Blox has been developed in co-operation with Steven Spielberg and involves building and blowing up constructions made of blocks. It's out on May 9th, and you can see it in action via the gamepage.
