Moore On Home: "Let's Go Already"
It must be that ol' competitive spirit popping up in former Xbox head man Peter Moore, who is now president of EA Sports. Only a day after Kaz Hirai apologized again for the delay of their ambitious PlayStation Home service, Moore just had to take a little jab at his former opponent.
Eurogamer asked Moore if he was interested in working with Home, and here's what he said in reply-
"Yeah; I just wish it would ship. I [previously] questioned it a little bit, whether I'd want to wander around there. Phil Harrison showed me a demo - it's very cool, but let's go already. And so I'm disappointed that it's been pushed back a little bit again."
Home is now loosely scheduled for a "TBA 2009" launch after being delayed again back in April, and most gamers were disappointed to learn of it. Moore is probably only saying what most of us are thinking, but little comments like this could rekindle old flames... Well, not that we're complaining; corporate conflict makes for good news. What Moore has to say is kinda true, but at the same time, we have to respect Sony's decision to delay Home. Hirai wants to make it perfect, and we have no problem with that; remember when y'all complained bitterly about the Grand Theft Auto IV delay? Was that not worth the wait?
