Peter Moore leaving Microsoft

In the last hour, Peter Moore filed his resignation with Microsoft. He will no longer be the head of Microsoft’s Xbox team. He is now going to become president of EA Sports in California where the rest of his family lives. According to Microsoft, Don Mattrick will become the new head of the Xbox team and the Games for Windows branch of Microsoft.

It’s ironic he is being replaced by Don Mattrick, who held many higher up jobs in EA until he resigned in February 2007. It’s almost like a stalemate.
