The "tradition" of the booth babe is pretty much dead these days, except if you are Microsoft, apparently. At their official Xbox party at the San Francisco Game Developer Conference, there was a bit of chagrin among some attending when several young ladies were working the crowd wearing short plaid skirts and fishnet tights. How nineties!
Microsoft quickly apologized, not least because they are trying to foster a more inclusive corporate attitude towards women in technology. Yeah, about that...
Microsoft didn't say who hired the dancers and even Aaron Greenberg, head of Xbox games marketing, was apparently unaware of what the night had in store.
