Surprise! Burnout 5 coming to Xbox 360 and PS3

With EA's overwhelming fondness of pumping out game after game in successful franchises, it should come as a shock to no one that Burnout 5 has just been announced to come to the 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2007. This time, however, it seems that Burnout will not rest on its laurels and is getting somewhat of a makeover.

This new Burnout will take an open-world approach and allow players to jump in and out of menus with every intersection "a potential crash junction." The game will take place in the fictional Paradise City and has been promised to include "the most explosive pile-ups in the series' history." The game will surely be a nice addition for the 360 and PS3, but where's the Wii support? You mean to tell us that EA couldn't come up with a cool version to take advantage of the Wii remote? We're also curious if the PS3 version will take advantage of the tilt function in the controller.
