EA talks 'evolution' of SSX franchise at gamescom


11:45 AM on 08.21.2011



Good news, everyone! SSX is fantastic... well at least the pre-alpha demo we were able to play was. All concerns about the game being "Call of Dutified" can be put to rest once and for all. The controls are spot on and the visuals style fits the series very well.

We talked to the guys from over at EA Canada about its version of AutoLog ("RidersNet"), big airs, crazy tricks and the game's new control scheme.
