Peter Moore resigns

Just taken a look on my Google Reader to see that Engadget are reporting that Peter Moore, the head guy at Microsoft, has resigned.

It’s hard to call the Xbox 360 anything but a success, but having missed some sales numbers, ringing up an extra unexpected $1b on the corporate card because of warranty issues, and still generally failing to make a profit, it looks like Peter Moore, who we just sat down with a few days ago, has stepped down from his embattled position as the ringleader of Microsoft’s Xbox group.

It seems that he’s not leaving the gaming industry completely though, he’s to become President of EA Sports. Maybe not quite the same calibre as being Vice President of Microsoft, but a pretty darn decent job.
