Peter Moore: Rare's "skillsets... were not applicable in today's market"

Speaking in the third part of the Guardian's interview, Peter Moore said that Rare's skills aren't applicable in the current market.

"Great people," he said. "But their skillsets were from a different time and a different place and were not applicable in today's market.”

Moore added that, in his opinion, consumers don't care about Rare's output any more.

"We'd had a tough time getting Rare back - Perfect Dark Zero was a launch title and didn't do as well as Perfect Dark... but we were trying all kinds of classic Rare stuff and unfortunately I think the industry had passed Rare by.

“It's a strong statement but what they were good at, new consumers didn't care about anymore, and it was tough because they were trying very hard - Chris and Tim Stamper were still there – to try and recreate the glory years of Rare, which is the reason Microsoft paid a lot of money for them and I spent a lot of time getting on a train to Twycross to meet them."
