Potential New SSX Details

It's Kotaku and it's rumors, so take it with whatever grain of salt (and tequila with lime) you wish.

Personally, I just want a new version of SSX3 more than anything that expands on a couple of those ideas.  The game that is described in that article...does NOT sound like the game I'm looking forward to.  Right analog controls?  Okay, I understand that EA has this hard-on for right analog controls.  Skate 3 controlled fine, although not as accurately as I would like it to be.  Riding down avalanches?  Alright, I can go along with that also.  SSX has always been able over-the-top nuttiness.  However, helicopter rescues?  Para-skiing?  Wingsuits?  What the hell is that all about?  SSX is about SNOWBOARDING, not every nutty x-treme sport known to man!!! 
 
I'm hoping and praying the game will be incredible, but we'll see.  Supposedly, it might be one of the announcements at the VGAs. 
 
What about you, SSX fans?  This sound like the game you want to play?

Sorry - i just had to remove the table from the end of myself after i saw 'NEW SSX' in the title 
 
Jesus that read brings up conflicting emotions - i love the notion of a new SSx, but that does not sound like a new ssx :(  
 But hey - maybe this is what a current gen ssx needs to be? GAH!
 where's coonce when you need him?!

I liked the way it controlled before.

The only snowboarding game I care about is Amped 3, so until Amped 4 gets announced, I don't care. And it will come. My guess is it'll be a Dreamcast II launch title, alongside Shenmue III and Half Life Episode 3.

How does it feel not being able to say "Duke Nukem Forever" in that same sentence now?  Kinda crappy, right?

  This would be the Ssx I remember playing. If they want to put in optional wing suits and helicopters and shit, whatever. Just make this fucking game now.

If they kept the old controls and added all that jumping out of helicopters, wing suit and stuff I think it'd be awesome.

This. 
 
SSX Tricky is probably my favorite snowboarding game ever.

@csl316: Only weeks?  SSX 3 dominated at least a year of my life, to the point that I platinumed everything.

Coonce must be fuckin' mad bitches if he has not taken the time to comment on a potential new SSX game... 
 
...unless he's already playing it on some secret profile we don't know about!!!
