Influenced by EA's recent racing titles — such as Burnout Paradise and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit — SSX will allow players to record ghosts which can then be shared with friends for instant competition.

Players will be able to participate live in 'Global Events', with thousands of players able to compete in real-time. Unsurprisingly, SSX will also feature an Autolog-esque feature called RiderNet, which will allow players to favourite specific routes and compare progress with friends.

The game's definitely come on leaps-and-bounds since its initial unveiling. It's due out in January.
