Forget your worries and prepare to grin: First SSX gameplay footage is 100% authentic (and brilliant)

It looks like real SSX. Seriously, it looks like REAL SSX

You know how those mad little sods get if they're ever allowed in the presence of an actual, real pony, with all the screaming and giggling and crying and jumping and shaking all rolled into one ball of psychotically excited emotion?

That's me looking at this new SSX gameplay footage, that is. Yeah, turns out they very probably haven't f*cked it up after all.

Behold:

Okay, so a large chunk of the gameplay is by way of untextured environmental renders, and the rest is pre-alpha footage, but bloody hell does that looks, sound and feel like pure, unsullied, undiluted SSX3. Look at the track shapes! Look at the board handling! Look at the tricks! Look at theinsane environmental concept designs!

PONIES! MOTHERF*CKING PONIES, MY FRIENDS!

I'm convinced now. In fact Todd Batty might just be my new best friend. Who's with me?
