Game description: Drop in and conquer the massive, living mountain rife with ego-crushing challenges and gravity-bending thrills. SSX 3 returns with more slopes and all-new hazards to overcome including lightning storms, vertical drops, serpentine slopestyle courses and avalanches. Customize your rider's clothes, abilities, and moves. Pull off three levels of awesome "Uber tricks." Dominate the mountain, and then test your skills online. It's a long way down, so make sure you're ready for the challenge.

GSdx Renderer: Direct3D10 (Hardware). Game runs and looks fabulous when up-scaled 5x at 60 FPS. Slight graphical glitches during per-renddered cut-scenes but can be fixed by turning off texture filtering. Bios v2.0 was used. Zrooney

Runs on full speed at 60 FPS with internal resolution 3x native without any speedhacks using Direct3D11 (Hardware). Ljubinko

1.7.0-dev-13 GSdx 1.2.0 SPU2-X 2.0.0 Runs at a consistent 60 FPS with all internal resolutions except 5K (8x native) with or without the MTVU speedhack and using D3D11 and OpenGL (hardware). The only time I noticed the game lag on these resolutions was in areas where it already lagged on native hardware (looking at you, first part of Metro City). The only audio issue I ran into was clipping with very loud in-game noises such as breaking panes of glass, but I think this may have been in the original game. The only graphical issue I ran into was an extremely faint grid overlay, which only appeared briefly one time when I was using 3x native. I couldn't recreate it, it was really brief, it was so faint you'd probably never notice if you weren't looking for it, and for all I know it was in the original game.

TL;DR: Runs phenomenally. I think just calling it 'Playable' is understating it.
