Newly appointed EA Sports chief Peter Moore (former Xbox chief) has commented that beginning with NBA Live 08, all EA Sports titles will be capable of running at 60 frames per second on the Playstation 3.
This is the kind of Peter Moore I like. None of that fake PR stuff he had to use in his last job.
I suddenly like this dude. I would have thought he would lean towards Microsoft and such and such, but he seems very proffesional and he jokes very friendly too.
In other words, dudes cool.
Can't believe you guys are falling for MORE of his PR spin! Of course NBA Live 08 is going to run at 60 fps!!! Becaues NBA 2K8 is!
If Madden would have had a decent football game to compete with, they would have made sure that it ran at 60 fps on the PS3 as well! This is not an accomplishment, just proof that Madden could have been run at 60 fps... Thanks Moore, but I'll be buying the better franchise, NBA 2K8!
Peter Moore's the new manGod proving professionlism still exists in this industry.
If he was'nt professional he would'nt be were he is. Does anyone seriously think these kind of executive persons have minds of fanboys?
...can someone send this to the developers of Two Worlds...
That game is a piece of crap. I'm gonna give it another shot today just to be 100% sure, the first time I played it I was close to tears. It's awful.
good for peter..hope he keep his words..everyone should remember he dont work for microsoft anymore..
Folks listen up, these professionals that work in the MS, Sony, or Nintendo public relations department are being paid to be fanboys, any PR department for any company is doing the same thing. Of course they are going to hype of the XBOX or PS3 or whatever, they're being paid to do it. So, it's no surprise that Peter Moore was so pro 360. Just like it's no surprise that he's going to hype up EA Sports, cause that's exactly what he's being paid to do. He has no loyalty to anyone except his paycheck and family. Think about that before you start knocking Kaz or Phil or J Allard, etc..
I commented on how awesome Peter Moore Was already.
hmmm That sounds good, hopefully he isn't lying.
IM confused?!? I thought he was on the other side? o well..
I bet Peter Moore has a Tatto in his A$$ it says' ''PLAY BEYOND''
LOL a bubble for u my friend
best one ever
*in* his ass?
As long as the graphics are atleast comparible, they'll have some of my money in the future. I'm impressed that they manned up to address the Madden issue, rather than just ignore it.
I have faith he will rejuvenate EA...
Well, it's the smart thing to say. Many, many fanboys had made incredibly crazy theories that Madden 06 was made to be subpar on the PS3 because of the Peter Moore appointment. Which doesn't really make much sense. EA probably made a crap product to save money. With this statement, he's hopefully calming down the masses. Never liked EA sports and found that the quality of Madden has been going down over the years. Hopefully he can do for EA what he did for 2K.
thats news im glad to hear.
How quickly this fanboy changed. Suddenly I like Peter Moore.
Me a PS3 guy liking Peter Moore?? This guy use to be public enemy # 1. I still remember his GTA IV tattoo.
I guess we can all safely say that the 'other' Peter Moore was just part of his last job. Still, the fact that there is another side to Peter Moore is freakin' surreal.
This guy using his passion and talents(which he has plenty off) to mak EA a better company. Instead of hammering the PS3, which he was very good at. Very good...
He knows how to play to the crowd, even though these are things that shouldn't have been an issue, at least he's making it known that he's not ignoring it.
whether EA improves or not under his charge, I will say that the man's enthusiasm is contagious, and that's certainly better than nothing. He better make good though, because talk is cheap, and too many people have lost their patience with EA.
Well, he was with Sega Sports and you know how awesome the 2k series was so hopefully all goes well. Hopefully he starts shaking things up by firing the QA for the PS3 version of Madden 08.
peter and phil are probably the best execs out there. they're not stiff up the @$$ and fake like the others ;;
especially phil, whenever hes being interviewed or on stage, you know its going to be great because hes a natural, he doesnt avoid questions and doesnt turn his wording to corporate BS.
Reggie's a jackass though. Always rubbed me the wrong way.
OR is this real? I cant beleive it. Peter Moore. I know longer hate you for being a PS3 basher. And I am finally forgiving you for all the PS3 bashing that you have done in the past. Well as long as he keeps his word that is.
At last his spirit is free from Microsoft!!!!!
Isn't this comical, the Xbox 360 head now saying the PS3 will be enqual to it with this game. wOOt! Glad to see some EQUAL dual side support.
ummm, he took a professional job with a neutral game developer. You guys are idiots if you think he was going to be bias and favor the 360. He is a business man, and this is his new job. Not everyone is as immature as you guys are and are going to be fanboys.
He had nothing to do with madden 08 running at 30 frames on the ps3 this year, and he will never do anything to hurt any console on purpose. That is stupid, as he is trying to sell as many ps3 games as possible.
IT IS HIS JOB
Well as Mr Wolf would say : "Lets not start sucking each others d*cks yet."
Lets just make sure it happens, and same goes for games like Skate and Company of Two, ok Pete.
What fooking nursery rhymes did you hear as a kid?
Hmmm... I can't wait to see those results SOON*
I knew it! After 2k says: it will have the games running on the PS3 60fps and EA can't do it cause they are lazy. Now EA comes out and says: ....mmm maybe we can run at 60fps. Damn got to love competitions to bring out the best in all of us! even EA lol!
And all fanboys are starting to like him... so sad to see.
Is he talking about the NBA Live 08 which demo is available since today from the PSN ? Well if it is, then I don't know what he's smoking. That cr.. oops game runs 720p and studders. Framerate issues everywhere. I don't get it. At least here it doesn't run smooth.
Compare that with the (old) Sony NBA 07 (is the new one out yet ?) which runs 1080p @ absolute smooth 60Hz. So, am I the only one seeing that ? Or am I completely insane now...
just trying not to let this ship sink too thats all.
WTF is NBA Live 08? The premier sport franchise in the states is Madden 08 and they screwed that one up. This never should've happened in the first place. I'm sure PS3 fans would rather have Madden delayed a weeks rather than have it released in the state it's in.
Too late EA Sports. Maybe next year I'll consider buying another EA sports title. Football is to the States as hockey is to Canada. I'm just glad that as a hockey fan, I have a choice. NHL08 @ 30FPS, or NHL2K8 @ 60FPS. Sorry Peter, maybe next year.
Im surprised the hardcore 360 fans arent coming in here saying moore betrayed them.
i played the demo of nba live on my ps3 last night. It is graphically impressive. but it lacks the gameplay and it has framerate issues after a basket is made and the camera changes angles for the team going the other way. granted its a demo so they may have that fixed. but that was pretty annoying.
Hm, I don't think its any more graphical impressive then say Sonys NBA series (and the user interface is a bold rip off - and its only 720p!).
What I don't get is, if you can't get to full realistic character models, pleeeaaasseee use pre-rendered cut scenes instead of these zombie models. WTF. Same with Stranglehold (sorry, that is off topic), but the cinematic sequences look like from a horror movie. Why not pre-render those in cgi quality if you want to give a game the attribute "cinematic". That game is pure fun, bit hard to control (not real fps) and the ingame looks fantastic. But then again, half a$$ cut scenes.
YEAH I LIKE THE SONY NBA SERIES BETTER. I LIKE THE SHOT RELEASE METER AND SUCH.
I posted this in the FIFA 08 comments, but did anyone else notice the jaggies on the PS3 Demo of Live 08? I mean it might run at near 60fps but it's clearly not as smooth and crisp as the 360 version. I was comparing both demos on the same TV and 360 version looks much better. PS3 version is full of jaggies. 360 has no jaggies and has a more steady framerate, less stuttering.
what a piece of crap. At one point it slowed to the point where i thought i was watching an action replay (about 30 seconds) and dont get me started on nascar 08 jeese, ea suck right now
What about FIFA on PS3 there Peter? That comes out before Live so does that mean it is going to suck on PS3?
EDIT*** Oooops, maybe FIFA comes out after LIVE. Hopefully that means FIFA won't suck.
If he disses a major customer like Sony, he will be out on his ear. It is just a job. If he worked for Sony he would have said the XB360 has little "value proposition" - or whatever. If the games sell on both EA makes more money. He has no loyalty to anything but the money he is paid to keep EA in the news and make them look good.
