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?

People just complain about delays because it gives them something to complain about. I remember being happy about the GTAIV delay.

If a crap company delays something it will still suck (or they will just not delay and release it unfinished). If a good company delays something it will get better. Rockstar is a good developer. They delayed GTAIV because it wasn't ready.

Sony is a good developer. They are delaying Home because it isn't ready.

I think people just don't understand how much work goes into these things.

EA delays games and they still suck when they come out!I swear Peter Moore was the dumbass who went on stage in front of crap loads of people at E3 thinking he was cool with his washable Halo3 and GTAIV tattoos.

I personally didn't necessarily get mad with the delay, but I did think it was unfair to advertise it in the PS3 TV commercials, if they knew it wasn't even close to being completed.

It's not like WE asked them for it, they were the ones shouting it to the sky. Once you advertise something, you can't expect people to not get mad when you drastically delay it.

And come on, it's like a year late.
It's not like it was pushed back just a few months.

I'm not a fanboy or anything, but Moore was an xbox guy, he probably said those exact words to the xbox360 devs, and looked what happened, they were messed up, and look at Vista, that was also messed up, and it still is pretty messed up, but regardless, Sony does not release stuff unfinished, these aren't stupid people who are making Home, when it is ready it will be released, be patient. It's better to be late and perfect, than early and shit.

hahaha why doesnt this surprise me.


the ex-head guy of xbox, is saying "lets go already"

seems he's taken that approach once before *cough*360*cough* and look what happened to that, its now an outdated and dead platform.
seriously, who can name ANY good exclusives outside of Halo and GOW.

i remember when i would compare the 2 consoles and think yeah its pretty close.
but a year later, im completely changed, byee byee suckbox 360.


good Devs know great games dont get released on a date they set a year before hand. they should announce the date a month beforehand. or even a week haha. imagine the chaos. it would be bliss.

imagine waking up 2moro, with an email saying "MGS4 is being released May 18th"
i think id crap my pants and bust a nut at the same time.

I hate Moore. He makes X360 look bader than it really is. I mean, yes, 360 is HORRIBLE, but Moore just overkills it!!! And now hes talking about Home?! MOORE, Please stop! No one wants you anywhere AROUND Sony!!!

Wait... Does Moore understand that Sony isn't another Microsoft? They don't release stuff by shitting it out, yes Moore, Sony actually WORKS on their productions... Amazing, I know =O

(Haha, If Moore was to read this he would probably be like "What is work? What is...'take time'" :P)
