Xbox 720 Rumour of the Week -- 3D Capabilities a Key Component

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft is hiring. One of its latest job postings sees it hunting for a 3D technician able to work across an "integrated hardware and software team" as part of the company's Xbox unit. Someone who's clever and good at 3D stuff.

The job listing, which is still online here if you have the necessary brain power to apply, states MS is looking for someone to handle: "algorithm design and implementation into state of the art 3D imaging systems working in an integrated HW and SW leading team."

Which sounds very much like Microsoft is looking for a "3D Guru" to handle implementation on a new hardware project. Or it could just be looking for someone to bug test Kinect games. We may have a long wait for any sort of official word. [MS Careers via BGR]
