A recent job listing (via NeoGAF) for the Xbox division indicates that changes are afoot at Microsoft. This is following the departure of Xbox Live creator Boyd Multerer.

“A new team has formed in Microsoft’s Xbox division with a specific purpose: to push the envelope of today’s and tomorrow’s technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor. It begins with veterans from Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Kinect. But we’re growing as quickly as our imaginations can be translated into code.”

Later, Microsoft updated GameSpot on this new team but didn’t provide any more information on what it would be doing.

“We’re always looking for talented people to innovate now and in the future. We don’t have any further comment on this or any other job posting.”

What are your thoughts on this new team and what will it accomplish in the new year? Let us know in the comments below.

    New ideas…right! Hopefully some day we actually find out what that means. Had this team been formed before the physics tech demo using azure or crackdown being announced I might have imagine that came from this team but they are new so…hmmm

    Perhaps new features using Xbox live? New interesting apps for the Xbox? New peripherals? More details please lol.

      Trust me, this is just more lies and exagurations coming from the mouths of Microsoft’s deceptive PR team. I feel sorry for anyone that believes anything this company says.

    • d0x360

      Yes because billion dollar companies are allowed to lie about such things. Oh wait they aren’t! Its illegal and its called stock manipulation. I also suppose the job listings they have posted are just pretend?

      Jesus dude if you’re gonna fanboy and least be clever/funny.

      He’s a console peasant. What do you expect?

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      You’re right I’m a console gamer.. A normal gamer and casual as well. The term hardcore gamer is only used by you PC gaming geeks. Anyone ever calls me a hardcore gamer I’ll take it as an insult.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      OK Console peasant

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      It’s funny because if I ever heard anyone call me a console peasant they would wind up losing their buck teeth. Again thank the internet for your own safety and thank god you aren’t within arm’s reach of me in the real world we live in.. You know the one that you don’t take part in? LOL

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      An Internet tough guy console peasant in the year 2015. Hilarious.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      I feel more sorry for console peasants like you who believe Sony’s lies then defend them.

      No wait, disgusted.

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      And I feel more sorry for you hermits who spend more time on forums and fiddling with your bios than you do actually playing games. You see you Millennial babies don’t have a clue son.

      PC gamers and Xbox gamers are the scum of this industry.. So much I could say on this subject it would melt your fragile little mind.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Go on then. Say it. I could talk about how Sony’s trying to DRM the entire internet as revealed in the Sony Pictures e-mail hack and you will defend it. You are nothing but a disgusting console peasant shill

    • Mark

      Oh crap I gotta check that out lol. Who is this guy, Mike Derp aka XtremeDerp?!

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      I’m your reality… deal with it and don’t associate yourself with PC gaming GEEKS.. it just makes you look bad squirt.

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      Stopping a movie from being viewed to prevent a terrorist attack in a movie theatre has something to do with DRM? Only in that warped PC gaming world you live in pal..

      I’m just glad I’m not part of it! 🙂

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Only a droning corporate scumbag like you would defend Sony meeting with the NSA to spy on users.

      You would never be part of it because it requires integrity, console peasant.

  • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

    I feel sorry for people that are still strung along like the easily manipulated puppets and sheep that they are. They still continue to believe there is hope.. well there is no light at the end of this tunnel and Microsoft’s bad Karma this gen really makes me happy.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      The irony of this coming from the mouth of a Sony console peasant. Hilarious.

      Post your PSN and prove you have a PS4

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      There is nothing ironic about it. You see son, I know what you’re thinking before you even do.. I’ve encounterd PC elitist nerds like you before.. You talk a big game but when called out to debate face to face or even less over the Mic.. you back into a corner..

      This is why you have no integrity kid.

      Also I gladly pay for PSN and to be honest PSN should have been charging last generation as well. Paying to play online is a small price to stay as far away from your PC gaming brood as possible.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Ah yes. The “Internet tough guy” shtick where you start screaming over the mic and spilling your doritos and mountain dew. A sad indication of children today.

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      I’m not an internet tough guy.. I just dont take sarcasm lightly in the real world. You can deal with that godforbid the next time you step out of your dungeon kiddo and get some actually sunlight and pigment in your skin.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Yes you are. Were you in the navy seals, console peasant? Did you get 200 confirmed no scope MLG xSWAGx kills?

      Just another internet tough guy screaming into a microphone like a console peasant.

    • Mark

      Lol! I like ur style…..hahaa

    • Mark

      Take it easy man. Even if people believe in lies, every company does it to get a leg up on comp. Therefore, there’s sheep carrying the banner, of almost EVERY company. No need to start immature threads. Instead, there’s alot of good for both console owners to talk about for this year. People r way too easily divided over nonsense. No disrespect tho, just think there’s better things to discuss.

    • Xbox Fans Have No Integrity Or

      Thank you for the reply.. I very much do respect your opinion.. all of it I actually agree with! Thanks for not judging.. I was personally attacked here first.

      Happy gaming!

      I hear u man. StarMan should chill out. I tried to smother his fire before, but to no avail. Companies thrive on division. We should respect each other as man to man and woman. My feeling is, atleast here on Gbolt, we can work on having a decent commenting community. Without too much negativity and trolling, we’ll have good discussions where no one has to fear getting bashed for who they support…….GAF!

      Anyway, you’re gonna attract Xbots and others with that name. Just keepin it real lol. But I can see u atleast want good discussion. U know what, we should have “support the other console Tuesdays” or something…….maybe not.
