Peter Moore Leaves Microsoft for EA Sports

Jul 17, 2007

Looks like today has carried a lot of fireworks in the industry. It’s a bit surreal to read these announcements as I saw the guy just a few days ago.

But in case you’ve missed it, the rumors are true. Peter Moore, Corporate Vice President for Interactive Entertainment Business in Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices division, has moved on to head up EA sports. Leaving behind Microsoft and the Xbox, the console he helped usher to the head of this generation’s console gaming race.

In what sounds like a trade, replacing Peter Moore at Microsoft will be Don Mattrack now formerly of EA. Maybe this is a sign of a strengthening relationship between the two major companies.
