    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.

    It's no surprise that next month's release of SSX will carry with it an "online pass" - a code that is given for free inside new copies to access online functionality and which requires those who obtain used copies to pay a fee to access the content in question. Interestingly though EA Sports isn't walling off everything online-related with SSX and everyone will be able to play online. Instead those who doesn't have the "online pass" simply won't be receiving the "credits" that are given ...
