New SSX teaser in Burnout Paradise?

Played the Burnout Paradise demo yet? Stupidly good, isn't it? Since we got hold of the Xbox Live preview we've been having an almost illegally good time discovering the new delights of Paradise City. It's been a non-stop orgy of melting tarmac, leaping off carpark roofs, barrell-rolling across beaches and handbrake turning into parking spaces at 100 miles per hour.

What's got us extra excited about the demo though is something entirely unrelated to Burnout. While it was great to discover that SSX3's DJ Atomika has made a transfer over to Crash FM from Radio Big, we found our already sizeable grins doubling in width when said voice of extreme racing games mentioned getting a message from the one and only Mac Fraser.



To the uninitiated, Mac Fraser is a playable character in SSX3, arguably still the pinnacle of EA's gloriously extravagant snowboarding series. Mac's message? That the snow on the mountain is falling and should be ready to ride by winter. Now we might be wrong, but we strongly suspect that that's confirmation that the next SSX game is heavily in production. It's not clear whether Mac was refering to this winter just underway or the end of next year, but either way, if we're right then we might be due an announcement of a next gen installment of one of our favourite franchises very soon.

    Hey guys. I too used to love the ssx game series, but unfortunately, Peter Moore from EA gave a statement that ssx was too hardcore and pretty much said it will be discontinued as people prefer to play big head tennis. I don't think that at all, infact, I have created a petition to send to EA when it has enough signatures! I really want the SSX series back, and I'm guessing you probably do to, so please go to www.livepetitions.co.uk/ssx . I also have a bebo group set up called www.bebo.com/bringbackssx so if you happen to have a bebo account, please join. Alone we can only achive so much. Together, we can bring back what we've lost!
