New SSX May Be Zipping Down the Slopes

Remember that amazingly fun snowboarding title on the PS2? A follow up may be coming to next gen consoles, including the PS3.

The latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine is reporting that developer Criterion is working on a new SSX title. The game is stated to be in development alongside the confirmed new Need for Speed title.

The last title in the franchise for the PS2 came out in 2005.

Last year, EA Montreal’s Alain Tascan told that the company may one day revive the popular snowboarding series.

I think this is something we will look at in the future to see if it makes sense to revive the franchise.

It’s a little bit early to talk about it, but I feel… I know internally it is a franchise that people love because it was successful and good, and it reminds me of when we were young, and I feel if the market is there and is ready for a new one then we’ll consider it.

Stick with PlayStation LifeStyle as we reveal anything regarding the snowboarder.
