It's about friggin time! I've been waiting since SSX3 for the next worthwhile installment of the series (sorry Blur & On Tour weren't it). I don't mind the new, more realistic imagining as long as they don't tinker with the controls. Honestly SSX3 was a perfect snowboarding game and I still enjoy playing it today. I hope they enhance the multiplayer to include wager matches introduced in COD Black Ops. And please bring back the series mainstays Mac, Elise, Moby, Allegra, Griff, Kaori, Zoe, Psymon, and Nate.
I have high hopes for SSX: DD, I'll be following this one till release. If you're a fan of SSX I recomend checking out http://www.merqurycity.com/ it's a great community of SSX fans!
