Peter Moore responds to Obama's anti-gaming stance
Delivering a Father's Day speech to America, President Obama was once again found taking a side-ways swipe at the negative impact of video games on family life.
EA Sports boss Peter Moore quickly stepped up to challenge Obama's comments about the negative impact of gaming to the American Medical Association, posing a 30 day EA Sports Active challenge (presumably in the hope garnering a few headlines in the process).
"I'd be willing to bet there are more consoles getting far more use in American homes than there is exercise equipment, so it's up to us to continue to use the platform for good," Moore commented.
Obama has apparently portrayed games in a negative light three times in various speeches over the last ten days, the president implying that games are linked to laziness, something Peter Moore obviously has a problem with. Nintendo would presumably disagree, too.
