Microsoft confirms R2 Studios acquisition, makes Krikorian a VP with the Xbox in mind

Microsoft is silent no longer on its buyout of R2 Studios. The software giant has officially confirmed its purchase of R2, a home automation and entertainment startup, for an unspecified amount. It’s also clearer that ex-Sling chief and R2 founder Blake Krikorian is central to the deal — he’s becoming a VP in the Interactive Entertainment Business, and much of the release (after the break) centers on Krikorian’s content-related design experience and how it could help the Xbox. We’ll just have to be patient enough to wait for the eventual results in our living rooms.
