    READY FOR THE NEXT GEN XBOX?

    Post by Selectstart on Wed Mar 09, 2011 12:01 am

    Software giant looking for hardware
    engineers to work on console "from
    conception through implementation"; one
    position mentions "future platforms."
    Historically, a console life cycle has usually lasted
    about five to six years. So, with the Xbox 360
    getting set to celebrate its sixth birthday this
    November, it shouldn't be a surprise that
    Microsoft is laying the groundwork for its next
    move in the gaming hardware market.

    According to several job postings on LinkedIn,
    Microsoft is forming a team "responsible for
    defining and delivering next generation console
    architectures from conception through
    implementation." Currently, the company's
    Interactive Entertainment Business is hiring an
    Audio/Video Hardware Architect, Audio
    Architect, and a Graphics Architect for
    positions with descriptions that contain the
    aforementioned language.
    Another position, for Wireless DV Engineer,
    will play "a key role in the development and
    verification of the Xbox and future
    platforms." (Emphasis added.) The Xbox division
    is also hiring a Design Verification Engineer
    and a Senior Hardware Verification
    Engineer.
    Microsoft's original Xbox model came out in
    November 2005 and was beset with hardware
    failures that ended up costing the company in
    excess of $1 billion due to warranty
    extensions
    . The problems were largely remedied with
    newer chipsets, with the whole console
    undergoing a redesign that resulted in 2010's
    slimline Xbox 360 S. That model is the one
    currently on the market in both 4GB and 250GB
    configurations.

    It seems Microsoft may be starting
    development on its next Xbox
    console.
    Recent job postings on networking
    website LinkedIn, first discovered
    by Beyond3D, reveal the company is hiring positions to work on next-
    generation console architectures in
    its Xbox division.
    A Graphics Architect position for
    Xbox hardware calls for someone to lead a team responsible for
    "defining and delivering next
    generation console architectures
    from conception through
    implementation."
    Additionally, an open Senior Engineer position seeks someone for
    "development and verification of
    the Xbox and future platforms,"
    while a third posting for a Senior Performance Architect will be
    involved in "product definition from
    early evaluation all the way through
    high volume manufacturing."
    Microsoft began work on the
    current Xbox 360 architecture back in 2003 with the console releasing in
    2005. If the two-year development
    cycle continues, and if these job
    postings prove to be accurate, the
    earliest we'll see Microsoft's next
    console will be 2012 or 2013.
