Peter Moore has claimed that comments made him during the peak of the RROD 360 furure were twisted by the press.
He did say there was no problem with RRoD though...
Didn't he say their failure rates were within industry norms?
and as the head of the biggest third party publisher that is not a good sign for gamers that own a ps3
You have no idea... if you EVER thought anyone'd get a fair shake from EA since his arrival there, stop taking those meds...
and its not meds its weed
what he specifically said, now. To be fair, he did have to take the fall for the entire RROD thing.
"Y'know, things break." was his response to all them broken 360's.
I reed artikul gud... "things break, but our job is to go fix it for you"
"I said, 'You know, things break', and then I was called Marie Antoinette – let them eat cake. But the context I was using wasn't flippant, the sentence was, 'things break, but our job is to go fix it for you'. So what I said was twisted to that it looked like I didn't care." But who knows, it's his word against the reporter, they are both professional liars.
I don't care how twisted it is, the fact he said "things break, it's our job to fix it for you" shows his indifference. The fact of the matter is, things aren't supposed to break. His job was too fix the ones that do, but to take measures to make sure they don't in the first place. Which, apparently, MS didn't do, according to that book and those leaks. He should have said, "things aren't supposed to break, we failed our job. But now that they are, we are fixing them for you." Who the fook is going to fix it after 3 years are up?
sounds like hes full of crap, the dude is telling us what we want to hear. what we want to hear is "we screwed up" or something along those lines
If he'd had a modicum more tact the fanboi fallout would've been a fraction of what it was.
Is this new picture his glamour shot? lmao
if its Not peter doing damage control its some other idiot..
"I'm pete moore, i'm a single old white male seeking young boys in seattle. if you're an xbot and would like to get a red ass of death, gimme a call!"
...'I do CARE!!!...Oh well i'm off to 'EA' now BYE!!!' ;-D
sucks to be in his place that time moore,just tell ea to unlock ps3's untapped potential mirror's edge is a step forward
Peter Moore is over EA's sports division. He has nothing to do with Mirror's Edge.
thanks for the tip bubbles
Yeah well, Madden and NHL 09 still sucks.
Didn't someone from EA move to a high position at Microsoft when Moore jumped ship? Who was it, and where did he end up... nevermind... found it myself... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Still think we're getting a fair shake from EA?
nothing like linking to a story linking to the whole story.
There you go, I added an alt source to the original interview/article.
that's why you say less and do more!
Sure it was. ‘You know, things break’ Yeah, they break but you fix something that's broken instead of allowing people to waste their time with a product that breaks over and over again. Microsoft didn't care about their consumers in the first place because if they did, they would have fixed the problem completely instead of hiding behind warranties.
Less talking, more fixin'. Madden 09 is a good place to start.
I found this quote even more interesting: Infamously, a guy called Mike Antonucci of the San Jose Mercury news interviewed me and was really pushing hard, and of course when you’re dealing with something as sensitive as defective hardware, you’ve got to be very careful what you say, Has MS ever come out and said they have defective hardware? They have only really said the problems were higher than they like so they are offering the 3 year warranty. I don't think they have said their hardware is defective.
That's why in the article he says that you have to be careful of what you say, because it will be used against you in court. Now that he no longer works at MS, he can talk as free as the rest of us.
They can't. It would kill them in lawsuits.
WHY DO YOU THINK HE QUIT MS - BECAUSE HE KNOWS HOW GOOD THE PS3 IS AND THE POTENTIAL THAT IT HOLDS I REMEMBER WHEN ALL THE LITTLE 360 FANS PRAISED PETER MOORE KNOW WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HIM
they fixed the rrod through the warranty . simple you call give them the serial number they tell you you are still coverd they ship a box if needed to and done. yea it sucked cause when you cant play thats usually the time you wana play. but you know what micro didnt hide from taking a huge $ hit they stepped up and and fix it for free why cant you see that? now i know the dre problem wasnt as huge as the rrod but i ended up having to pay to fix the dre 3 times out my pocket sony wasnt hearing nothing about it just like they plan on not doing anything about the laptops. and forget it if you dont have a reciept. micro fuced up huge with the rrod but if you looked at the big picture nobody with the rrod had to pay to fix it and if they did at first they got the money back
"they fixed the rrod through the warranty . simple you call give them the serial number they tell you you are still coverd they ship a box if needed to and done." Maybe you should read what I just said a little more clearly. Expanding a warranty is not called *fixing the problem*. You send it in, they send it back, it breaks again. You send it again. They send it back. It breaks again. I have never heard of *anyone* sending in a 360 once and never having problems again. I am not risking it. "yea it sucked cause when you cant play thats usually the time you wana play. but you know what micro didnt hide from taking a huge $ hit they stepped up and and fix it for free why cant you see that?" They didn't step in at first. They lied about it and claimed they were unaware of the problem. Do you 360 fanboys honestly believe everything Microsoft says? "now i know the dre problem wasnt as huge as the rrod but i ended up having to pay to fix the dre 3 times out my pocket sony wasnt hearing nothing about it just like they plan on not doing anything about the laptops. and forget it if you dont have a reciept." Going back to the past yet again. I'm talking about *now*. "micro fuced up huge with the rrod but if you looked at the big picture nobody with the rrod had to pay to fix it and if they did at first they got the money back" That's not the point. You completely missed my point! You know what? Forget it.
you can kiss that warranty goodbye
This guys been talkin' a bit too much...Perhaps he can, shut up? Since when was this guy a damn prophet.
"you know, things break." Classic.
you know what i agree lets forget it. you sony fanatics are like a bunch of pre madanas. the sh!t gets fixed for free that simple. if the rrod still bothers you even with no new reports and a warranty then you and the 360 was never meant to be. just keep on waiting. dre was last gen, yea it was but do you realy think you gana forget about the rrod like you did dre next gen i dont think so. i was simply pointing out that if sony fucs up they turn there backs on you if micro does they take the hit. im just happy that i dont have to pay to fix it and still get the better games. rrod = free fix dre =ld pay me get the drift juuken you frikin pre madana and just so yu idiots know the 3 years starts from the time you buy it not from the date it was announced. dont believe it call micro.
...You have some nerve calling someone a primadonna when you're trying to convince them that the 360 is the greatest thing since sliced bread. The only thing the 360 has going for it are a couple of good games and online service but the hardware SUCKS. Don't you find it disturbing that the RROD still exists? Microsoft did not fix the RROD. Stop kidding yourself. ^__^
You can't tell me he don't look like a rat.
He does. =o
You got that right, this douche bag took care of the Dreamcast all by Himself
you BLATANTLY LIED about it than and now so few believes what you say about it...You lost your credibility
after 10 or 8 years after the xbox 360 die we will hear statement from Peter Moore saying " I killed the X-box 360."
Can't this guy go crawl under stone or something, his comments seem to be getting stupider by the minute.
