I know this is a PS2 forum but i thought this was important for PS2\'s best title right now.http://cube.ign.com/news/28867.html
Are you ready for a special edition version of SSX for Gamecube? You had better be. Full story.
December 11, 2000
Last week IGNcube reported that EA Canada had received Gamecube development hardware and was already deep in benchmark testing -- with impressive results too. At the time, we had no word on what possible software Electronic Arts was planning for Nintendo\'s console, if any, but now we do.
A leak within the huge publisher has now relayed to us that EA is internally working on a revamped and enhanced version of the PlayStation 2 title SSX for Gamecube, called simply SSX: Special Edition. That, despite earlier reports that the firm had plans to outsource all of its Gamecube content. The game, which we assume is being created at EA Canada (as it has development hardware and created the original SSX), will allegedly feature extra boarders, tracks and "other goodies," according to a source close to those involved.
Interestingly, we\'re told SSX: SE will be used by EA as a testing ground for any future Gamecube products to come. Supposing the project goes well from a development standpoint and then, more importantly, enjoys a decent amount of retail success, the company\'s "Big" label will include Nintendo\'s platform for its next offering -- a rumored extreme mountain biking game.
As always, we contacted Electronic Arts for comment and received the typical response: "EA does not comment on rumors and speculation."
