It looks as though the Wii will be in the hands of European gamers no later than Friday November 3rd, as an oversight in Electronic Arts' release schedule planning pegs a Wii game with the above street-date.

The game is Need for Speed: Carbon and although no other details were offered, this news should come as a welcome insight to those eagerly awaiting the new Nintendo home console's release across the EU.

However, EA is not alone in letting its plans slip. THQ also showed its cards a little early, pegging SpongeBob: Kreature from the Krusty Krab for the Wii in October. Of course, games often hit the streets before their host hardware comes available. Either way, the Wii now looks closer than ever.

We'll let you know as we get more.
