    Attempting a reboot of SSX was a daunting task for EA Sports. They faced inevitable backlash due to the inherent nostalgia fans of the series carried - which could naturally have inhibited creativity and use of new technology - and a shrinking base of consumers open to arcade-style games in general. The end result however was the best sports related offering in the first half of 2012. SSX delivered great gameplay, innovation, and superb post-release support. (more…)...

    The teases from EA Sports regarding new content for SSX materialized today in a patch for the game that delivers two new modes for free. As expected head-to-head live online multiplayer races are now in and known as "3-2-1-GO" as is the ability to simply explore a mountain in "Freeride" mode. Online races now support up to 5 live competitors. "3-2-1-GO" events can be found at the wall or browsing the globe and are available for both "Race It" and "Trick It" runs. The winner in the latter ...

    Despite the excellent social-based online system for SSX fans never stopped clamoring for traditional head-to-head racing. Two new screenshots and a video just released point towards that being a likely addition with upcoming DLC.  (more…)...

    Though SSX struggled to gain market traction - retailers dropped the price in stunning fashion promptly following its late February release - EA Sports has continued to support the product well. A patch and tuner set was pushed out at the end of March and DLC followed a month later. Now they're promoting more to come for the well-regarded game this summer. A new video of a run in SSX has hit and EA claims that "even the cleverest eyes eyes will only spot a just some of what's on the way."...

  • SSX Price Keeps Plummeting

    Posted April 3rd, 2012 at 11:30 am 8 Comments
    SSX has barely been out a month and it's already been halved in price. Amazon (Xbox 360 - PS3) and Best Buy have already dropped the game to $30. It's a fantastic deal for a very good game but does not bode well for the future of the series. SSX has undoubtedly failed to gain traction at retail and follows in what has become a long line of arcade-style titles that have struggled to justify their development this generation. It's hard to imagine a scenario in which a sequel comes about no...

  • Big Sale on Three Recent EA Sports Releases: SSX, FIFA Street, and Grand Slam Tennis 2

    Posted March 19th, 2012 at 8:45 am 12 Comments
    In the last month EA Sports relaunched three franchises to mixed results. Those three have now received significant price reductions with SSX and FIFA Street falling to $40 and Grand Slam Tennis 2 down to $30 at Amazon making them much more appealing as potential purchases. SSX (Xbox 360 - PS3) has generally been well received since launching at the end of February. Amazon did originally offer a $10 promo credit with pre-orders so this amounts to an extra $10 shaved off from then. FIFA...

    Posted March 7th, 2012 at 9:30 am 6 Comments
    The SSX reboot from EA Sports faced the difficulty of living up to nostalgic feelings bred from earlier entries in the series while taking advantage of the advanced technology available to in turn justify its full price on the 360 and PS3 with a wider-ranging experience. The new game had to appeal to those earlier fans while reaching new ones - and it entered the marketplace during a period where arcade-style games have found little traction. Despite some bumps along the way SSX largely s...
