Remember that speech with the American Medical Association in which Obama said, “It means going for a run or hitting the gym, and raising our children to step away from the video games and spend more time playing outside,” and for some reason seemed to have ticked off some gamers?
I have a link to the original story here: Obama AMA speech
Well, now Peter Moore, President of the EA Sports division of EA, has said the following,“Of course, I can’t resist pointing out that while I’ve always wholeheartedly endorsed moderation in anything you do, including playing games, it may be time for the president and his family to put their Wii to good use and fire up the 30-day challenge with EA Sports Active.”
Moore also went on to talk about Microsoft and Sony implementing motion tech on their systems and how it will enhance at-home fitness experiences, and mentioned,“In fact, 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.”
Gotta love Peter Moore.
