  • Moore can never directly answer a question.

    Public Relations is very important for Peter Moore, it's just that he can't quite cut it. While he seems to be a nice guy, it's his ability to answer any negative questions about Microsoft's Xbox or Xbox 360 with nothing but a positive spin. Problem is, he doesn't do his job well enough for us to not to be able to see through it.

    When he's not talking about the video game industry, he's a well liked and enjoyable to watch. He's a regular guy who loves video games and has been an asset at Microsoft in marketing the Xbox and the Xbox 360, but his interviews on the consoles are quite lacking, and he doesn't seem to shy away from being crypic about them.

    I was first introduced to him during the promotional period for the release of the Microsoft Xbox 360 back in 2005. His interviews contained no information that the fans really wanted: Will everyone be able to get a 360 by Christmas? What are the percentages of Hard Drive versus Non-Hard Drive units to be sold. What's with all the damage? It was hard at times to watch him evade the questions without answering them. It was like watching a good politician: He never appears uncomfortable and dodges questions. Problem is, we notice when he's dodging.

    Ultimately, I have to give him credit. Since he is responsible for the Xbox Unit, he is out there talking directly with the fans and doing the interviews; instead of having some other PR person out there doing it for him. He loves the gaming world, he just has to work on his speaking skills so he isn't so obvious in telling us nothing.moreless
