Outgoing Xbox chief Peter Moore says what Playstation 3 needs is a "dramatic, decisive drop to $399," and praises Nintendo's success: "simply because they deserve it."
the " too much Nectar" start taking effect
"Overdosing on Nectar does a multitude of things. Friendly forces may appear as enemies"
Why would anyone take console advice from Peter Moore? Look at his track record with the last three he's worked on?
I dont think that he said anything bad at all, but instead is rather giving Sony helpful advice (he probably wants it to do well now, so they can sell more EA games on it)
lol, let it begin.
as you all know i like Xbox.
i will like ps3 as well next year.
but there is no need for comments like this.
i'm sure Sony has a plan.
comments like this? What, mature ones? All he said was "PS3 needs to get to $399" That's his opinion, it's better than Sony saying "Nintendo is a gimmick"
Not to mention, the 360 is a "lame chef" or whatever. And the Wii is a "lollipop" that doesn't last.
It goes both ways folks.
Moore doesn't seem as assholish about it though IMO.
I guess it's best he get in all the shots he can at Sony while he's still working for Microsoft because in a couple of months he'll have to start working with Sony; give'r hard Mr. Moore, give'r hard.
wow cuppa already wrote you off as a fanboy lol impressive impressive. This generation of consoles have been really greasy, i honestly don't remember presidents taking shots at each other but this is gaming
"...this is gaming"
THIS IS SPARTA!!!!! (I had to...)
In all seriousness, I think that your right with the Presidents tossing out ideas or slander at each other. It's been dirty but it's never been this bad.
i cant be arsed to comment moore quit which says it all
The PS3 should be for sale at $399 and it will eventually get there, but he needs stop taking stabs at companies since he is leaving MS. He will be working with Sony, Nintendo, and MS so stopping trying to put them down. That's like me talking bad about my customer at my job.
look "Peter Moore says what Playstation 3 needs is a "dramatic, decisive drop to $399,"
That should be the right price, for a gaming console, of it's caliber this gen. The way I see it, not everybody wants to somehow commit that extra $200 towards the price of a new format.(I don't even own a DVD collection)
Especially early-on for the PS3, it has not proved much.
Now it's almost a year and the price has already dropped $100(hoping it stays there), I'm sure it was beneficial for those that waited. As well as it will be, for those that wait for another $100 drop(people like me)
By that time the PS3 will be, $400 and below and: THE
1. Dev will get their codes up to snuff.
2. PSN will get better.
3. Multi games will fare better.
4. Gaming library will be bigger.
5. Gamer will be purchasing a console that is a "GAMES" first but can do other things SECOND.
Not the, we are giving you everything out of the box, even if you might not need or use it, right away, but have to pay that steep price, early on type of console.
That how I have always seen it, and so do many gamers. I will purchase on my own accord, not because I'm an early adopter, well not anymore, I got bills to pay.
Now it's funny how there is no need to bash Moore now. He could give his opinion about which ever console without covering having to cover his ass.
I think pete moving to EA is going to be very bad for sony. He obviously still has some bias and the loss of key EA sports games would be devastating for sony. MS still has him on the payroll and they sent him to EA as a "sleeper" in my opinion. :)
IF Peter Moore starts to F*** with the Sony EA relationship then.... well you see where I'm going here. But I do not think he would go there.
yea i know, if EA and sony have problem. let just say no games
I don't know why anyone would react negatively to what he said. Nintendo obviously has momentum, and will likely be leading by the winter. The best way for Sony to cut into the lead of MS and Nintendo is another price cut. Regardless of how good a console is, the consumers (parents/adults for the most part) will buy based on cost first; everything else is secondary.
this guy is getting verrry annoying
i hate the ps3 as much as the next guy...but common just leave Moore
He isnt convincing me to go buy a 360. It is good that he leaves.
madden 360 exclusive!!!!!
PS3 needs to be at $399 *today*.
(next year is next year's problem).
$499 didn't do it in Dec 06 and it won't do enough in dec 07.
It certainly isn't doing much in Japan where the 20Gb is still available. (Or did they quitely axe it there?)
Getting to $399 in NorthAm next year may be too little too late if 360 gets to $199 this year or if Nintendo just runs away with it.
should we really be listening to a guy that was part of a division at MS that has lost billions and has yet to post a profit? If MS didn't have deep pockets, they would have abandoned the 360 a long time ago.
I think that because he has already made his bed in another house, he's burning down all the bridges that lead to the old house(Microsoft).
The question is....why? Being head of EA Sports, why the hell would you want to stir the pot and then have to eat the crap that your stewing up? Making bad relations or giving advice about something that you know people will disagree with, while in the meantime kissing the asses of the execs you need to market your product to. Now upon saying this, I understand that EA is not going anywhere. So Moore can say what he wants, because life will be just as sweet for him at EA.
Every year there will be Madden, every year there will be an RTS, a FPS, and everything else under the sun because EA is huge. XBOX/PS3 will resist but by sheer numbers, EA will make there presence known. Love 'em or Hate 'em, they will be there.
Yea he's going to EA with M$ still in his head. He's got loyalties and biases. It shows. I just wonder if he's gonna use his power to get back at Sony for the Dreamcast days.
It would be crazy if he did. But I doubt he would, he's a businessman afterall.
These websites come up with clever/inflammatory headlines to create more hits on their site. This isn't a parting shot, it's the god honest truth. Is there anyone on this site that doesn't think the PS3 needs to get to $399? That is what Moore is saying, nothing else. I'm sure Sony is thinking the same thing, they just have to figure out how they can afford to do that.
He also thinks that the 80GB won't make a huge difference, and I don't disagree with that. PS3 has a lot of great games coming out soon, but in order to sell those games they have got to get a way to put systems in people's homes. The way to do that is a significant price drop. Moore also goes on to compliment Nintendo, but does mention that they need more 3rd party support....another spot on statement. In this small article I can't find anything to disagree with, it's hardly a sucker punch to either company.
Jack Trenton and Kazz H. have already on record saying they are looking forward to working with P. Moore. Plus I do not think Moore is that dirty.
I'm F***ed up like that, I would be like all those @sses on the web talking $#!t about M$ and XBOX are about are to get it! No GAMES any more B!T(#'s!!! (J/K) LOL No I would not do that. That means less money.
But I hope for Sony and the Sony loyal that Peter More is not.
i would not call that a parting shot. him saying they need to hit the $399.99 point is right.
can you imagine how many PS3's would be sold at that price point. that was more like water cooler talk about a topic that is widely discussed.
i can't tell you how many of my friends who own a ps2 are waiting for a price point like that.
it would be different if he said they suck or their machine is inferior...that would be a shot...he's talking money
wii is only 1 mill behind them. so sorry microsoft but ur losing to wii too. and starting 2 lose 2 sony in sales
PS3 would sell~out if it hit the new price of $399.99 an would give Wii a run for it's money. What good is lowering the price of games if you can't afford the system?
Well if Sony could sell the PS3 for 399US$ then there would be no competition.
With the PS3 at 399$ it would sell like fresh bread. No more X360s would be sold, what's the point in that? With no competition all gamers would loose. Not a good plan mister Moore ;)
PS3 at $399.99, yup Moore has a point. Is it me or does Peter Moore never finish things that he's started. He basically jumps out of the fire before he's engulfed. Lets be honest here. It hasn't been a good two weeks for Microsoft.
I would not trust EA. Heck - he wrecks all he puts his hands on.
About what Peter thinks sony should do?
exactly and now he is going to destroy EA's image, oh well they havent been that impressive lately.
Notice how Peter Moore left 2 or 3 months before the Wii will take over the 360 in 1st place. He's completely wrong for saying PS3 should be $399. $499 is the right price because the PS3 can hardly keep with demand. At this price they can soften there loss but at $399 they would be selling the same amount because there's only so much supply and they're losing that $100.
I'm pretty sure if Sony can take the 80GB model to 499$ after the emotion-engined version phased out, Sony will be good BY NOW.
Is like the Silver Surfer. Every where he goes a console dies.
I'm talking to you Xbots.
Moore going to EA will NOT harm Sony in any way. They will not lose games you [email protected]
A 499 PS3 does wonders on its own. It did them in 2006, it'll do them in 2007 and beyond. 20GBs were harder to find than a Wii, partially because Sony didn't want to lose more cash so they stopped production, but also because they were in high demand - if there were more, they would've sold more. Not to the minority who want the maxed out version when the 20GB really wasn't as gimped as Core is. 60GB and 80GB has basically no difference, except that 80GB bundle is a rip.
And yes, Moore is a horrible, horrible businessman. He ruined Sega, now he ruined Xbox and got fired/bailed out for it.
Also, PS3 would do f***ing fantastic at 399 in full supply. Right now #28 has nailed it.
and is it just me, or does moore look evil
those two comments aren't parting shots they are just two views shared by possibly the majority of gamers
