SSX On Tour is by far the worst like i cant tell you how much i hated that game, the most waste of money ever. just make it like trick and 3 and it will sell like hot cakes. can wait
SSXDeadlyDescent.com, SSXFirstDescent.com registered by unknown company; EA staying mum on possible titles.
Among its library of intellectual properties, Electronic Arts has one of the more popular snowboarding series, SSX. The franchise has lain fallow since 2007, when SSX Blur was released as a Wii exclusive. Prior to that, installments in the series appeared on the PSP, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation 2, and original Xbox.
Now, there are signs that EA may be bringing back the SSX franchise. This week, the Internet sleuth known as Superannuation uncovered two URLs that were registered by a domain company last week: SSXFirstDescent.com and SSXDeadlyDescent.com. The domains DeadlyDescent.com and DeadlyDescents.com were also registered. All four URLs currently point to blank white pages.
Though no definitive link to EA was established, the use of the snowboarding term "first descent" in conjunction with the trademarked SSX name points to a possible new title from the publisher. However, reps for the Redwood City, California-based company declined comment on the URLs, dismissing any association with EA as "rumor and speculation."

SSX3 with updated graphics and more than one mountain would be bliss for me. Complete with the crazy dressing up.
Just crossbreed Tricky with SSX3 and you'll be onto a winner. And bring back Brody, I need abit of transcendental meditation.
Well, it's about time. Get rid of the skiing, and bring back the strong characterizations and tell me where I can pre-order.
I wish they would make a remake of SSX3, or at least use the same style. That game was the best... And I still listen to it's soundtrack.
Oh yes!! SSX:tricky was one of favourite ps2 games.....just reading this article has decided what game I'm digging out tonight
A long time between runs but will be seriously hoping that SSX is back. I rate SSX on Tour one of the best games I have played on PSP, can't wait for something for PS3, bring it on!!!
Hooray! SSX is easily one of my favourite franchises, so happy they might be bringing it back. Just hope it's better than Blur.
By coincidence I needed to test some speakers a few days ago so I set up my old my old PS2, grabbed SSX tricky off the shelf (wiped off the layer of dust) and powered up. It still looked great, sounded great and played great. PS3 version please!
Don't understand all the hate for On Tour. I liked it, and I was a fan of the series since Tricky. The music was amazing (even though I didn't like all the censorship) But Blur was absolute crap. Terrible controls, recycled courses, no licensed music. They should make this one with a mixture of elements from 3 and On Tour. With the licensed music and continuous peak from On Tour, and the art style and smooth framerate of 3, this could be an amazing game.
Yes, about time. I really hope whatever they create can match or exceed the awesomeness that was SSX 3. Blur for Wii was just not that good. SSX On Tour for PSP on the other hand was addictive, but nothing could top SSX 3 in my eyes. I've been wondering whatever happened to that franchise. @jmartinez1983 SSX was also my first PS2 game. So many fond memories.
About time! I love SSX and its been a while. SSX was the first game I bought for PS2 way back over a decade ago.
Listening to 'and the sign says long haired freaky people need not apply' whilst being on Perpendiculous SSX 3 = WIN!
ssx tricky and ssx3 were amazing, a current gen version could be so much better, just think of the awesome mountain that could be created. There has been a shortage of good extreme sports games.
ssx is freaking awesome!!! but please make it more like 3 instead of on tour. we needs crazy psymon! i spend a LOT of time playing ssx3, and if i could play !ONLINE! you wouldnt see me for a week.
I actually enjoyed SSX Blur, I hope they keep this franchise alive, even if they just remake a game for the 3DS.
I would love to play SSX in HD. SSX 3 is one of my game in series and I know EA will make this one a big hit.
My First SSX was Blur and I loved it. From the Controls (minus how you did the Ubers - Which would be Vastly improved with Motion Plus) to the Gameplay I absolutely loved it. They got HUGE air (Not as much as Twisted Edge Snowboarding on N64) Great Tricks, Throwing Snowballs and all. It was an overall great game. Hopefully there will be a new SSX on Wii and this time around add online play and I'd be shredding the slopes once again.
My first snowboard game was SSX on Tour and i just Love. could it be cool one SSX on the "new generation"
Please, Please bring it back!! I loved this franchise and I cry since 2005 for NextGen title of this game.
@thetravman - I agree, On Tour was the best of the bunch. The skiing was so rock solid too, the snowboard controls have just never been that great.. But y'know because freeskiing isn't "cool" all the kiddies weren't down with it. The whole continuous mountain was killer too, I mean if you bombed it it still took a full 17 minutes from top to bottom, if there's anything that sucks in a snowsports game (or in real life for that matter), it's having a great run going and then hitting the bottom. So here's hoping this is real, they make a massive mountain, include skiing and make a massive mountain.
Awesoem I still have and play SSX3, fun game. I would love to see that series come back with PS3/360 level of depth and game play. I love whole mountain free runs.
Been saying they need to bring this franchise back for a long time. NO skiing though, cocentrate on doing snowboarding right with awesome online modes.
SSX 3 is literally one of my favorite games ever, if they do a new game like that on 360/PS3 I will be the happiest man ever.
Agree on have it be like SSX3. Loved that game. This is the only game where I actually got blisters on my thumbs from playing it too much.
Really hope it's for PS3 this time! BIG fan of the series...And EA should remember how many people played them on the PS2!
Was playing SSX Tricky the other day. Definitely one of the better games. :pved the original cast and was a lot of fun in general. 3 was alright and fun but at the same time it still wasn't as fun. Still, excited to see how this turns out.
Just awesome. I still listen to the Finished Symphony song from the untracked level when I get out boarding on real mountains.
Please. Let it happen. I want my Elise in glorious HD cruising down the mountains with glittering snow showering all over the place. Just don't make it like On Tour, make it like SSX3, the perfect Snowboard game.
Wow, talk about a blast from the past!!! I litterally played the hell outa that game (all of em) till I had em mastered. I hope they dont mess too much with the feel of the controls!
HELL. YES. I am more excited about this than I am to get home and play Black Ops.. I hope they stay super arcadey with it though. Don't make SSX in the Skate of snowboarding (not that Skate is bad.)
