Microsoft executive, Peter Moore, recently defended Rare, makers of games such as Viva Pinata and Kameo from criticisms that the company hasn’t really brought the commercial and critical success ever since it was bought by Microsoft.

In the interview, he explains how Rare set Xbox 360 apart from the original Xbox. He says, “It signaled that this wasn’t going to be the same as Xbox 1, which was dominated by Mature-rated games, if you will, and for many people will go down in history as the Halo box or the shooter box.” He went on to say that because Rare had both Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo ready for launch, and made them quality titles let people know that the Xbox 360 was more than just for FPS’.
