Rumor: New SSX In The Works
What was the best PS2 launch title? The correct answer - at least as far as critics were concerned - was obvious: SSX.
And although it spawned plenty of new installments, we haven't heard from the acclaimed series for some time. This is why long-time fans are now very excited: according to Superannuation and as noted by Scrawl, EA has recently registered five new domain names related to the popular franchise. All the domains hint at the name of the title - "SSX: Deadly Descent" - although we have no further information at this time.
Existing domains are: DeadlyDescent.com, DeadlyDescents.com, SSXDeadlyDescent.com, SSXDeadlyDescents.com, and SSXFirstDescent.com. As Scrawl points out, the latter might be for a PSP/DS version of a new SSX entry. And you know, we really haven't had an awesome snowboarding game this generation, although Shaun White Snowboarding was decent. The return of SSX would be absolutely huge, and we're hoping EA makes it official some time soon...perhaps before the year is out.
Yeah, we know, you bought your PS2 for Tekken Tag Tournament, right? But SSX was basically godly at that time.
