If you're at PAX Prime this weekend and you've got reservations about the new SSX, let Electronic Arts ease your mind. A portion of the game's vast mountain ranges is playable at the event in Seattle this week. Do well enough, and you might even score some sweet schwag.
Only one drop from the game's nine mountains is playable on the PAX show floor, a steep course found on the Himalayan Makalu mountain peak. It's a trick run, and Electronic Arts is offering up a sweet snowboard-shaped SSX USB stick to anyone who can break 100,000 points. I walked away from my demo with fewer than 60,000, so no USB stick for me. But I did walk away with these pictures, a grim reminder of what could have been... if I wasn't so bad.
If you're at PAX this weekend, try your hand at the demo and see if you can score yourself some sweet schwag. Let me know what you think of the demo, too; I think it feels solid, and as an SSX fan I'm more than ready for the game's release early next year.
