    Microsoft Job Posting Suggests Move to Web, Console and Mobile

    According to Arstechnica (linked above), a new job posting suggests that Microsoft is looking to create a gaming platform that goes beyond just the Xbox 360 to the Web, console and mobile devices.

    The job posting from August 10, 2009 states Microsoft is looking for a LIVE Community Director in the Entertainment & Devices Division.

    This suggests that Microsoft is looking to bring the Xbox Live, Windows Mobile, and other similar properties closer together. More specifically, there's talk of a "casual and social gaming platform" that would be available via more than just one device.

    To quote: The LIVE Engagement Team is looking for a LIVE Community Director to manage its LIVE community strategy and execution across a range of properties, from Xbox LIVE to Windows Mobile.

    This senior position will play a vital role in the community space as the LIVE Engagement team builds and program's Microsoft's next-generation, LIVE-enabled casual and social gaming platform across the Web, the console, mobile and beyond.

    To quote from the actual Posting...

    This obviously means they will have to develop for the PlayStation 3. As a ad I once saw said "The only way to play beyond is with the PS3".

    And since Beyond is the Slogan for the PS3. I feel Microsoft is basically saying that they are giving up and decide that the best way to make money is to go multiplatform.
