The former head of all things Xbox and current president of EA Sports, or Peter Moore for short, has said he is bitterly disappointed by the latest series of delays to hit Sony's Home online service for the PlayStation Network.

The comments came less than 24 hours after Sony Computer Entertainment boss Kaz Hirai announced and apolgised for continuing delays to the online hub, according to GI.biz.

Asked whether he would be interested in having EA work with Sony on Home now that he no longer works for Microsoft, Moore replied only that he wished Sony would finish the project.

"I [previously] questioned it a little bit, whether I'd want to wander around there. Phil Harrison showed me a demo – it's very cool, but let's go already. And so I'm disappointed that it's been pushed back a little bit again," said Moore.

"But I really hope it gets going and becomes that portal to the PlayStation Network and we can utilise it. But boy, I just wish we'd get going."

Microsoft reportedly looked into providing a similar service with Xbox Live when launching the original Xbox, but abandoned plans for such an online service before it became widely known.

Home, which is designed to allow PSN users to have a virtual avatar and home where they can collect awards for game achievements and interact with fellow gamers, is now scheduled for release this autumn. Disappointed? Let us know in the forums.
