EA’s COO Peter Moore has stated that Microsoft needs to “cough up” the Xbox One’s release date.

Speaking with, Moore discussed the fact that competing formats have never released so close before, given that PS4 will drop in North America on November 15, and that Xbox One is also pegged for a November launch.

“It has never happened this way,” he said. “There’s always been a period of time, a sorbet between consoles, that has cleansed the palate and allowed us to move on. It might be a week, who knows? Microsoft needs to cough up the date.”

This was the same interview that saw Moore explain that Microsoft has been aggressive with EA, when asked about the special partnership between both companies. Check it out here.
