SSX demo coming next week

It's been a light winter for most of the country, but you can get a little downhill powder time in virtually next week. A demo of SSX will be coming next week for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, creative director Todd Batty has announced.

Word came from an interview with Batty on The Ubercast (via CVG). The demo will hit Xbox 360 first on February 21, then the PlayStation 3 the day after. You'll only be able to play as one character (Zoe) in the demo, but you can unlock another (Mac) through a "referral" system. The demo will include two tutorials, four events, and skydiving.

The game is set to hit on February 28.
