Oh, btw, Criterion, EA, how about some Burnout love for the Wii? No brainer, must look better then the PS2 and offer both wiimote and classical/Gamecube support. I have all PS2 only Burnouts and 1 and 2 for the GameCube. I would BUY burnout on the Wii in a blink of an eye, if it was on the level with those versions (especialy 2 and takedown, my favorites).

Just putting it out there, hoping some PR reads it...
