Peter Moore Blasted Sonic Creator


Posted September 5, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

EA Sports head honcho and all-around gaming tycoon Peter Moore recently spoke to Esquire magazine about his career and revealed a funny story about exchanging harsh words with Sonic the Hedgehog creator Yuji Naka back in the day.

In the interview, Moore reveals that while in Tokyo to present the results of focus group testing in which gamers likened his former employer Sega to a "granddad with dementia who used to be cool but you couldn't remember why," Naka accused Moore of tampering with the tests. And that didn’t go over with Moore at all. Not one bit.

"I lost it," he recalled. "I turned to the interpreter and said, 'Tell him, "F*** you." 

Luckily the translator refused to translate Moore’s statement, but he’s pretty sure the sentiment was clear.

"Naka had lived in the US for three years, so I knew he understood,” Moore added. “I walked out and never returned."

Damn! That’s some Clint Eastwood type sh*t right there!
