New Evidence That A New Xbox Is Right Around The Corner!
Posted 11 months ago By Vince - Vincent Deshaies
Always on the lookout for new information, GameFocus has found interesting evidence that Microsoft is actively working on a new console. We already knew that Skype was now owned by Microsoft, and certain protocols of the software are used to allow users to voice and video chat on the Xbox 360. Well, here’s where it gets interesting. GameFocus has found out that Microsoft is looking for a Lead Program Manager for the Skype platform on the Next Generation of Xbox. According to the job offer, time is short and someone has to be hired very soon. Could this mean the next Xbox is right around the corner? If they are so short on time to develop the software, it certainly seems to indicate that they could be in the final stages.
Here’s the offer in question:
"Skype is working on powering real-time voice and video communications on the Xbox. Xbox is a fundamental lynchpin of Skype’s living-room strategy, and we are focused on enabling amazing new in-game and in-console voice and video experiences for the next generation of Xbox. This is a crucial initiative for Xbox, and it is time-critical given the hardware lead times involved.” https://careers.microsoft.com/
