Is this trailer for the new SSX? Or maybe Battlefield 3? We can't decide yet

We'll find out for definite at the Spike TV Video Game Awards next month, but for now, watch the vid and let me know what you think.

Interesting, no? Apparently an earlier version of the trailer contained an EA logo too. That taken as true, my money is currently on either the so-long-rumoured-and-so-long-overdue-I'll-have-a-breakdown-if-I-don't--get-it-soon next SSX game, or thealready-confirmedBattlefield 3. The "Take on the planet" line could easily apply to an online shooter, but it could just as easily hint at an SSX game taking in worldwide locations rather than simply the traditional Big Mountain setting.

The persistant focus on a huge mountain peak is another massive hint. Battlefield has snowy hillside areas, but the imagery here is just too specifically Everestian.Though that chopper is pretty ambiguous. It could just as easily be one of SSX's transport helicopters as it could a military vehicle.

Opinions? Which do you think it is, and which do you want it to be?
