Microsoft begins work on the next-generation Xbox

Microsoft have yet to have confirmed the news, but have advertised three job positions on LinkedIn with each position looking for people to work on designing new console architectures. The roles currently being advertised include Graphics Hardware Architect, Senior Architect and Performance Engineer for the Xbox Console Architecture Group and Senior Hardware Design Verification Engineer. Quite the mouthful.

The next-gen consoles will have to at least be capable of resolutions that next-gen Television sets will bring. 1080p has been here for quite a while and I see that changing in the next ten years, hopefully Microsoft are thinking of this and not boxing themselves into a corner like the 360 has been put into. A console with outputs capable of 1920×1080 yet 90-percent of games render at below 1280×720 (usually 1200×600 or so).
