Hell yeah! I forgot this series existed, I really enjoyed SSX Tricky, though I passed on SSX3. I might just pick this one up now! Assuming it doesn't take up 1500 memory blocks.

Pffft, this is one of the good EA games, EA BIG are actually an awesome developer, NBA Street rocks too. SSX > 1080.

Ehh, I wasn't too fond of NBA Street, even with the hilarious Nintendo team.  I'd be excited for this, except I already own SSX Tricky and SSX3.  Maybe when it drops to ten bucks or something.

This isn't really surprising considering Mario's appearance in NBA Street.  At the time Nintendo and EA heavily implied other collaborations.  My opinion on this is the same as mine on NBA Street's: Nintendo is spreading Mario too thin.  At least this time though it's one of EA's best, if not THE best, franchises.

How odd is Mario appearing in SSX when Nintendo's own 1080 is one of that franchise's main competitors?

Yeah that is a bit weird, I guess they want to keep 1080 "mature".

I'm going to fully agree with Ian and the spreading too thin deal.  They could at least put other characters from the mario universe like goombas or something...at least that would be funny and more interesting.

Not as interesting as Mr. Frosty riding a Penguin board.

Good thing Mario's fat am I right. But yeah, SSX kicks arse. I just hope they're sort of going to try making it more playable with the controller this time. SSX3 on GC was a nightmare compared to the PS2 version.

Oh man, just when I was thinking of getting SSX3 cheap.

I continue to agree that Mario's being overused, but since I'm already a fan of this series, this is one cameo that might convince me to buy the game.
That's my opinion, not yours.

I forgot EA actually had a good game in its arsenal. I liked SSX3 a great deal.  Don't know about putting mario in it, though.

mario snowboarding, peach skiing and luigi snowboarding, and a bit more of mario boarding (doesnt show a nintendo stage)
The style looks good with the mario team in the video, there not streached or warped like in the basketball game
the link doesnt seem to work anymore, I got it from cube-europe.com

Of course, the best part, the game emiting old school NES sounds as Mario pulls off stunts.

I agree with Mario and this is looking the 3rd EA published game I own 2nd on the cube. I always liked SSX series but I never got to arround buying them but I did borrow them and had some fun.


EDIT: Also this is a great idea since this is a exclusive feature while the PS2 and Xbox versions doesn't even have online support so unless EA Big doesn't mess up the controls on the cube this is going to look like the superior version out of the 3.
