Gaming Technology

Shakeup at Microsoft has Peter Moore resigning. Moore directed Xbox division which has always been in one sense a virtual success, never made money, and recently took $1B hit for warranty issues with defective Xbox consoles. Xbox along with Wii are consoles that draw a lot of pay-for-use attention though licensing Xbox for that purpose is ironically virtually impossible.

And what will Moore now be doing? Headed to SF bay area to take over as president of EA Sports which focuses on competitors like Sony and Nintendo.... Nice little signing bonus too ($1.5M).
