Microsoft hiring engineers for their next console


If Microsoft holds true to their 10-year plan for the Xbox 360 it will still be around in 2015. But that isn’t stopping the company from beginning work on their next console.

Job listings from Microsoft seem to indicate that the hardware manufacturer will soon be starting work on the Xbox 360’s successor. They are looking for a graphics hardware architect and performance engineer among other positions.

The listing for the hardware architect specifically states, "The team is responsible for defining and delivering next generation console architectures from conception through implementation."

Even if Microsoft is starting work on their "next-generation console," it isn’t very surprising. The company is probably two or three years away from making any specific announcements, but it’s still good to know they have the wheels in motion early.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
