With just under eight weeks to go until launch, the anticipation is definitely building for EA Sports’ upcoming snowboarding game, SSX. If you were planning on pre-ordering, the details for exclusive pre-order in-game bonus content for five major retailers has been released, with GameStop seemingly having the most value. If you pre-order from GameStop, you will receive SSX character Eddie Wachowski, and his Elite Snowboard with an Attribute Perk. Pre-ordering from the other retailers will only get you Elise’s Elite Snowboard with an Attribute Perk from Origin, Mac’s Elite Snowboard with an Attribute Perk from Amazon, Zoe’s Elite Snowboard with an Attribute Perk from Best Buy, or Kaori’s Elite Snowboard with an Attribute Perk from Wal-Mart.
Fortunately, the fans will be far from disappointed with this re-imagining of the franchise, according to several media outlets featured in the newly revised ‘Accolates’ trailer for the title. Big names like EGM, IGN, and GamesRadar have their one-liners inserted in the video as reassurance that SSX is worth your time. Although you won’t get any new footage of the game, it is nice to see the title isn’t simply a money grab using the SSX name. SSX is due for release on February 28, 2012, until then check out the revised trailer below:
