Former Xbox boss says company encouraged console wars to “challenge each other”

Former Xbox Boss Peter Moore has revealed an interesting insight about how Microsoft encouraged the console wars between Xbox 360 and PS3, but not to create division between players.

In an interview with Front Office Sports (opens in new tab) (thanks, IGN (opens in new tab)), Moore explained that Xbox viewed the console wars of that era as being conducive to healthy competition. Furthermore, he suggested that Xbox needed to be competitive at the time to recover from poor sales of the original Xbox and the Xbox 360’s notorious “red ring of death.”
