Nintendo Wii: The Recently Announced Burnout Crash Was Originally Created For The Nintendo Wii

Burnout Crash seems to have received mixed reactions from the majority of Burnout fans. It looks as though it’s a massive departure from previous Burnout titles. What is interesting though is that the game was originally developed from the ground-up as a Wii title but for some unknown reason Criterion Games decided to scrap it for Wii and instead bring it across to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Would you have liked to play this on Wii?

“The original version started on the Wii, and it was a user-created game where you drew the road with a wand, and we thought if we made Crash mode you can make it all yourself.”

“We did that for a few months and it actually turned out to be quite boring. One of our philosophies at Criterion is just ‘cos we’ve made it doesn’t mean we can’t delete it. So if we have to throw something away and shelve it, we could talk for hours about the number of ideas we’ve just thrown away because you get there and it doesn’t quite work.”

  1. At least it saved us from having an embarrassing rendition to a popular title. Cheers for Criterion for letting others know what it’s like to be a Wii-owner instead.
