My friends at the Gamerscoreblog just released a press release that Peter Moore has resigned his position at Microsoft. He’ll head over to become President of EA’s sports division. I guess he wants to redeem his E3 Rock Band performance in a major way.
I just wanted to say to Peter that I wish you well. I didn’t get the pleasure to meet you but you were one of the very few executives that I’ve come across who seemed to have a genuine love for what they were doing. It’s not always about numbers. You understood that it was just as much about the fun as it was the business. I’ll forever remember your presentation tattoos, your Pac-Man promo video as well as your Rock Band performance during E3 2007.
I can only hope that the people in places that matter at Microsoft realize that it’s not always about years of experience in this industry. I guess now we move on to a new face for the Xbox 360. Good luck Peter and welcome to the new breed.
