EA Sports President Peter Moore recently talked to GameDaily
about his decision to not release Madden NFL 09
on PC. He acknowledges the move "pissed off a lot of people," but it was a business decision based on sports games in the PC market.
He stands by previous statements he made, when he was still with Microsoft
, that there'll be a PC gaming renaissance, but he says sports games aren't going to play a "huge role." He says that whether people agree with it or not, EA Sports is designing its games to be played ten feet away from a high-definition screen with groups of people playing online or in the same room. The full interview
is actually quite deep, with Moore discussing a lot more about EA Sports' design philosophy, its targeted consumer and the issue of PC piracy.
