Defying gravity with SSX

The new SSX game focuses on adrenaline-fueled action and jumping from helicopters. So to demonstrate this, EA Sports decided to gather a few unknowing volunteers and throw them off the top of Battersea Power Station in London.&nb...

Shocker: SSX has an online pass

The new SSX looks pretty damn fantastic, of that there is no denying. Still, Electronic Arts once again doesn't think it's good enough to sell new copies on its own merit, and hopes to force your hand with its favorite skeezy business tacti...

EA developing music-mixing 'Harmony' tool, debuts in SSX

One of my favorite facets of SSX Tricky was its fusion of audio and gameplay. The game would mute its thumping house/hip-hop soundtrack as you soared off a ramp, leaving only the sound of the air whistling past your rider until the music ki...

Zoe gets (not really) animated for SSX comic clip

EA talks 'evolution' of SSX franchise at gamescom
