MS looking for new staff to 'build a totally new LIVE experience'

Maxconsole reports: "According to a job posting, Microsoft is looking for a Program Manager in order to "build the games, the console interface and logic, and the server support for a totally new LIVE experience." The description goes on to say that both the games and dashboard will be deeply paired with dynamic server support in order to create a fresh scenario each and every time".

Could it be that maybe the rumors of Microsoft trying to do something like PS Home were true after all? Maybe so, and maybe no, but regardless it should be interesting to see what happens from here.

the drive toward innovation :)

I don't think "home" for 360 won't happen anytime soon, just because most of the current Live users (based on language used on Live) do not want to play with Barbies.

Oh god please don't tell me they're gonna copy PShome too -_-

You can hold off the battle cry to your fellow SDF members.

I love the way you say "too". It's funny, when I hear about things like In-game custom soundtracks or Trophies I think to myself its a shame Sony copying these things too.

technically MS was working on home first back for the first Xbox's live, they just scraped it because it was running behind, so if anything Sony copied MS.

Jdash243257d ago

i was jw, the way you phrased that comment by adding "too" at the end is implying that someone is already copying PShome, but as far as I know, no one is copying it

so tell me, is there someone copying HOME? because if not, that "too" makes no sense in your comment

Is all i got to say atm

Edit: Actually I hope this is not a attempt to copy Home but something nice that they can call their own. If it is just shame 4 MS.

Elginer3257d ago

interesting, hmm..there was a rumor that MS was working on something called LIVE UNIVERSE which took elements of LIVE as it is and also 3D imagine in a world kinda like HOME. Who knows where this is gonna go.

Who knows whats going on we'll find out in a few days depending on if MSFT wants to announce the big guns durring the Keynote speech(tomorro) or save it for later on in the GDC showing as a suprize.

We do know this" MSFT has said they have something to show at GDC that has to do with opening up XBL.

This has been on this site for almost two years...

maybe. I mean why change what's been working so good?

The_Engineer3256d ago

it kills me that every 360 soldier on this site is now acting like MSHome wouldn't be copying sony if they released a HOME wannabe.

but but but I thought the current xboxlive was the PINNACLE of online gaming?? I thought PSN was LIGHT YEARS behind LIVE?? Some idiots even said PSN would NEVER catch up to LIVE much less surpass it.

WHAT HAPPENED XKIDDIES??

I'll tell you,this is what happens when you let the wrong end do the talking.

Saint Sony3256d ago (Edited 3256d ago )

..and you think Sony's HOME is new and innovative? Wrong, they copied it from the so many other game sites where you can run around in 3D environments or 2D world. Meet up people and play with them, change your outfit and do customizing etc. Have a room and decorate it.

Yep Sony ain't inventing anything with Home, it is just implementing the OLD concept. MS has all right to copy the same sources that Sony is doing and besides if we nitpick (don't care really) Sony copied the gamer achivement (trophies) system from MS.
