Having returned to active duty in the video game press corps, Peter currently serves as an Industry Analyst and Editor-at-Large for Popzara Press. He will be attending E3 in June for the second straight year, this time as Popzara's media representative after winning a trip last year with Kmart. Peter contributes analysis, sales data summaries, and breakdowns of console video game industry news and earnings for Popzara, and will be expanding to composing game reviews and previews later this year.
Peter has over 10 years of writing experience, ranging from reviews and previews to op-ed pieces and sales-related articles. He's worked with a number of web portals in the past, including About.com, SonyWeb, Game Critics, PSX Extreme, Armchair Empire, Games Are Evil, and Gaming Nexus. He currently runs Consoleation, a smaller gaming-related blog, which he founded back in 2008. Some of Peter's writing inspirations include @GAMER's Andy Eddy, Activision's Dan Amrich, and Game Informer's own Andrew Reiner.
In 2011, Peter began a series called Armchair Analysis to discuss NPD sales data and sales trends. Since its inception, the series has branched out to cover more industry-related financial events, including publisher earnings and conference calls as well as opinions on certain industry news and announcements. Armchair Analysis moved to KmartGamer in the summer of 2011 and had a brief run as an independent blog before being picked up by Popzara Press in May of 2012. Expansion of the Armchair Analysis series has moved to Twitter and to Facebook within the past few months.
In his spare time, Peter has a keen interest in older video games and consoles. He currently owns a Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, a SEGA Genesis, and the more recent PlayStation 2 in addition to current-gen platforms in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. His PS2 game library spans more than 250 titles, and he's always on the lookout for library additions as time and money allow.
Peter is very active in social media including Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and is always up for gaming-related discussion and conversation.
