Microsoft working on Xbox 360 successor? 8 March 2011 15:18:21
Rumours have surfaced that Microsoft is working on the follow up to its Xbox 360 games console after a series of job postings appeared online.
Posted on Linkedin, they reveal that the company's Xbox console architecture group is looking for a new graphics hardware architect and a senior architect and performance engineer.
"The team is responsible for defining and delivering next generation console architectures from conception through implementation," the posting explains.
It went on to say that the ideal candidate should have a "broad background in 3D graphics rendering architectures and algorithms (ideally with gaming applications in mind), 3D software pipelines and physics".
"The candidate should also have a solid understanding of graphics hardware implementation, including design methodologies and production yield and cost analysis," the listing added.
Microsoft first introduced the Xbox 360 in 2005 as a replacement for the original Xbox. However, it recently launched the interactive gaming system Kinect, which is likely to extend the console's life span significantly.
