EA’s Peter Moore Responds To Dana & Lorenzo’s ‘War’

peter_mooreEA Sports head, Peter Moore, has broken EA’s silence on the “war” Dana and Lorenzo declared on them over the weekend. And let’s just say Moore is a little more politically correct than Zuffa is.

I also saw the first playable of EA SPORTS MMA while at Tiburon last week. We have a team of incredibly hardcore fans of the sport working hard and making excellent progress, and we look forward to delivering a title in 2010 that we believe will provide further focus and attention to the sport.

I know there has been some recent discussion about EA SPORTS bringing a challenger to this sport. I love mixed martial arts, and we’ve been working on a game concept since I came to EA two years ago. I have great respect for the organizations and individuals that have invested in the sport’s growth over the past decade – so this is one that is near and dear to me and I’m excited to see such good progress to date. I trace my MMA video game roots back to my support of Crave’s UFC title on the Dreamcast in 2000, and have been a fan ever since. Our title will bring both innovation and further authenticity to mixed martial arts, not to mention a strong global publishing network that will help spread the sport’s popularity around the world.

Hmmm…so if you listen to Dana and Lorenzo, EA managed to get a playable version of EA Sports MMA up and running in less than two months. Sure…

I already touched on the spin Dana and Lorenzo are trying to put on the EA ban story, but Fightlinker took the ball and hit it out of the freakin’ park, so I definitely recommend checking that out.
