More Proof of Zune Gaming

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Zune Hardware" @ 01:30 PM

"Earlier this year, Peter Moore confirmed to Bloomberg Microsoft’s plans to add video gaming capabilities to the Zune by July 2008. Today, I found several Microsoft Careers job postings which provides more proof of Microsoft’s intentions to make the Zune a casual-gaming platform as well. As the posting for “Software Development Engineer in Test” posted on the January 4th 2007 states, "Zune needs you! Do you love music, movies, gaming? Are you passionate about delivering cool consumer experiences that span the entertainment space? Do you like the idea of being on a start-up team? Come join the Zune effort and help build the next generation of portable digital entertainment. Be a part of this start up team which will reshape the way people engage with their games, music, and videos. Have fun every day on this fast paced, ultra creative team and help Microsoft go big in this space!""

OK, so our current Zunes sure won't do much more gaming than solitaire, but obviously Microsoft is serious about making the Zune a full-flavored entertainment device. If you're a portable game developer, you could sure do worse than working for Microsoft. So, are you excited about gaming on your Zune, or annoyed that your current Zune won't do much more than minesweeper?

Yes, it's a slow news day. ;-)

Microsoft Hiring for the Zune Team - Want a Job?

That's right, the folks at Microsoft are looking to hire people for the Zune team - there are 34 positions open at the moment, for roles such as Technical Writer, Program Manager, Software Development Engineer in Test, and many others. It's a good thing I enjoy doing Thoughts Media so much or I'd have to go join the Zune team and cause some trouble. ;-)
