Peter Moore resigns from Microsoft…

…and takes a job at EA as the president of EA Sports. This came to me as a complete shock. It wasn’t more than a week ago that Moore was at E3 giving his extremely enthusiastic presentation and rocking out with Harmonix. He did look a bit tired though.

Given his experience (something like 20+ years?) and his natural maverick style I am betting that we will see some pretty interesting things coming from EA Sports over the next few months. As for why – we don’t really know yet. The reasons he gave for resigning, and before the announcement by EA, Moore said that he had decided to move his family back to the Bay Area (EA headquarters is there, duh!). To me this seems like a step down for Moore. As for who is replacing him at Microsoft? Don Mattrick, a formal president of EA, has taken the job.

E3: The beginning of E3 and Microsoft’s Presentation

It’s the start of E3 and gamers around the world are all anxiously awaiting the announcements and presentations of our favorite publishers and developers. E3 this year has been downsized. What was once a large showroom of booths and bling is now a “let’s get right to it” down-to-earth way for companies to announce their product.

Since we were not lucky enough to land any form of invitation to E3, Graev and I will be bringing our coverage to our readers based on what we see on TV, live feeds, and read from various news sources. We hope that our opinions and insight into this year’s largest entertainment expo will be interesting and helpful to all of you out there.

So let’s get to it! Last night Microsoft gave the first major presentation. With our computers tuned in to 4 different live feeds and our TV on G4 we made sure to catch every moment of what was sure to be a fantastic hour. The presentation began with Peter Moore, the lovable vp over at Microsoft, giving us the usual commentary on what a wonderful year it’s been for Xbox360 and Microsoft. The most interesting line of possibly the entire briefing was when he said every title they would talk about is coming out this year (2007). So right off the bat Microsoft makes it clear they are going all out to make 2007 their year.
