I still don't understand why EA BIG isn't making another SSX for the PS3 and 360. SSX, Tricky and SSX 3 all of rating over 90% on GameRankings so obviously the reviewers loved them. I loved those games. Why the hell just end a franchise that was filled with awesomeness?  They really need to make a new one.

You know, that was the one game I really hoped would appear on E3^^

None of the games in the series have been bad, I actually even liked SSX blur (great controls and music imo), but ssx 3 is infinite win.

They should make a game for the 360 and ps3 with the same open-world type of thing that they did in ssx 3 and burnout paradise, now with online support (like shaun white, only better). Come to think of it, I think the DJ atomica guy in Burnout Paradise made a reference to SSX once in that game, saying that one of the characters from SSX was not done yet, or something like that.

There really needs to be another one

SSX3 is one of my favorite games of all time

Yea I liked Blur as well. But I definitely think it could have been done better. A new Wii version would also be nice.

I was literally thinking of posting this today.

I'd love another game I used to love the old ones, and could do with a fix.

No argument there. The major issue imo was that it felt.. empty and lacking in content compared to other games in the series (among other issues). But I actually thought the steering controls was great and for once more accurate than with a stick. Steering by tilting the nunchuck felt great and accurate. A new game on the Wii would be great too, but its harder to make a "spectacular" game on that system because of its limitations.

I'd love to see a new SSX game.  I loved Tricky, and lost a significant portion of my life to SSX 3.  I get the feeling that by the time On Tour and Blur came around, though, EA might have been seeing diminishing returns from the series, sales-wise.  Also, didn't they dissolve the BIG brand not too long ago?

Kind of old news but I was looking for this exact answer a few days ago. Found an interview with Alain Tascan of EA Montreal: 
 Q: Looking at some of your other franchises, are we going to see another SSX?

Alain Tascan: Ah, SSX. We have a big catalogue and we were talking about what people like. I think this is something we will look at in the future to see if it makes sense to revive the franchise.

Q: Well, SSX was a very popular franchise and has a lot of fans – at the moment do you think there's sense in bringing it back?

Alain Tascan: 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.  

 It's not a definite yes, but at least there is hope. Link

@Gazel_Ministry: The guy is talking like SSX died out in the 80s. "When we were young."

The last game was on Wii - SSX Blur, and it was pretty darn good. I really hope they get to work on a sequel to that game, it's one of the best snowboarding games I've ever played, the basic controls felt great.
