EGM Has No Love for SSX Blur!

Being the big SSX fan that I am, I took a look through the feature article on Deadly Descent in the February 2011 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. And in reading the article, I came across a statement that stood out to me as being incorrect:

"It might seem hard to believe, but it's been a full five years since the last SSX Game, SSX On Tour, and seven since the last true sequel, SSX 3. The series has not yet made the transition to current-gen consoles...."

Okay, so according to EGM, SSX Blur never happened. Perhaps they thought it was so bad that they succeeded in erasing it from their memories (and, in the process, forgot that it even arrived on the Wii - a current-generation console). That or they somehow managed to avoid it for years, or they simply didn't consider to verify their facts. For someone like me who thoroughly loved SSX Blur, I find it pretty upsetting that they pay no tribute to it whatsoever. Crazy, I know!
