SSX On Tour's in-game music soundtrack is a part of the EA SPORTS(TM) TRAX music initiative that EA debuted in 2001. The program is dedicated to bringing gamers the hottest music through EA's videogames.

Building on the critically acclaimed gameplay of the SSX(TM) franchise, SSX On Tour features all-new player customization that gives you the chance to join The Tour. SSX On Tour is packed with all-new highly detailed tracks, new stylish player customization options, new monster tricks, and multiplayer options. In SSX On Tour, players will reach breakneck speeds, catch huge air, and become an icon as they storm down the mountain as either a snowboarder or a skier. Players will pull off jaw-dropping monster tricks to out-style your competitors while hurtling down the slopes at supersonic speeds. Build a career as you progress from a slope-side wannabe to a black-diamond-dominating rock star. Compete for medals or just tear up the massive new mountain, but make sure you look good doing it because your reputation is always on the line. You create the hype -- the hype creates a legend in SSX On Tour.

Developed by EA Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia, SSX On Tour will be available for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube(TM) and PSP(TM) portable entertainment system this Fall.
