Peter Moore is a man’s man, so much so, in fact, that he squared up to Yuji Naka when the Sonic Team boss accused Moore of tampering with dialogue from Sega focus tests.
“I lost it,” Moore told UK mag Esquire. “I turned to the interpreter and said, ‘Tell him, ‘Fuck you.'”
The translator refused, but Moore reckoned the message was loud and clear.
“Naka had lived in the US for three years, so I knew he understood,” he said. “I walked out and never returned.”
Moore headed up Dreamcast back in the day, for those of you too young to remember, before moving onto various jobs including, obviously, fronting the Xbox brand and EA Sports.
