Microsoft "will not be using Home"

MS rubbishes reports it's set to hold business meetings in PS3's virtual world

Microsoft has dismissed reports that it's planning to use Sony's PS3 virtual world Home to host business meetings.

"Microsoft will not be using Home as a tool for virtual meetings," the company told us following a recent report to the contrary.


Last week GAAP claimed MS would be one of a number of big companies using Home for meetings in a bid to reduce costs and carbon emissions, but according to the platform holder it's perfectly capable of staging its own virtual bashes.

"With fantastic Microsoft-developed products and applications like Live Meeting and even Xbox Live Party, we have everything we need to host a virtual meeting in-house," it said.

We were sceptical about the original report, and clearly with good reason.
