Well hello there awesome MerqCity peeps... Been a long while since I lurked/posted here. Hope everyone is doing well?

So for the longest time we've all been holding our breath for an announcement of another SSX game to grace current gen consoles, since most of enjoyed 2012 version. In the last month or so I have started to fear that if there were any announcement forthcoming, I'll probably have zero hype for it, given the current "loot box = pay to win" fiasco that seems to be EA's only viable business model for all it's games now!

So yeah, just wanted to get that off my chest without going into any details about it, cause we all know/heard about it.

Anyways, while I'm here, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year... All the best for 2018 & beyond!!

Yeah, we were talking about this a little bit ago in the SSX Discord. If they come out with a new SSX game or a remaster of the old ones, I'd fully expect EA to try something like that. For that reason, is it even worth hoping for a new game when EA is in the state it is right now? Ideally, I hope EA decide to sell the rights to SSX to another company, but I wouldn't count on that... maybe at some point. If that doesn't happen then I at least hope they'll change their business model. Wouldn't count on that either, though.

And a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, enjoy the holidays! Best wishes

I understand that its hard to keep the fires going if EA aren't even going to throw anything our way to even make ups wonder that another game is possible. I would even be happy for an emulated version in the PSN store, which if the PC can manage to get it done then why cant the company who own it, surely its money for old rope / easy to do with little effort on their part money maker.

I missed the loot box chatter so wont get into that here, but doubt its the way SSX would ever go if released anyway.

As I'll say again, theres always a chance we'll hear of a new game next year. Until then Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year

I'm not as optimistic as you are Yeti. The closure of Visceral games shows me the loot box rot at EA has reached the point where it affects whether projects are greenlit or not.

I don't want SSX to be released until 3 years at least until the loot bot phenomenon has died down. Because that shit is straight up gaming poison and I don't want EA infecting our favorite franchise with it.

As much as I want to join in on the pay to play jokes, I'm even more afraid I'd just give them more ideas. o_O
