Judging by its consistent deployment of new features via monthly updates, Microsoft is constantly looking to improve the Xbox One experience. It’s also looking for the staff necessary to implement such changes, as a listing for a Principal Software Engineer states. The listing states that the engineer will, “Design new API’s and features for the Xbox One and gaming across all Windows platforms.”

The latter part is especially interesting since Microsoft has been making more noise about improving the gaming experience with the upcoming Windows 10. How this will affect features like cross-platform gaming between the Xbox One and PC remains to be seen.

But that’s not all. Microsoft is also hiring for its Halo Game Services team and is looking for a Software Engineer to work “on building the next generation of cloud services to power our new game saga on Xbox One.” Could this perhaps mean the Xbox Live Compute services, used for multiplayer in games like Titanfall, coming into play from Halo 5: Guardians onwards?

What are your thoughts on Microsoft’s recent developments? Let us know in the comments.

    Yeah just like Titanfall which wouldn’t be possible without the power of cloud /s

      well, titanfall does have an amazingly stable and effective online experience, so there’s that.

      Because its not like it had anything to do with titanfall was actually working right away and pretty much never has lag. Right? You must be one of those Sony morons that don’t think the cloud is only useful for ps now.

      They don’t know the value of a near lagless game.

    • DLConspiracy//

      For someone named gaikai I would assume you know all about cloud.

    • Gaikai

      Ha very clever aren’t you? my name has nothing to do with the game streaming company that Sony aquired a couple of years ago, and just so you know it’s called ‘PS Now’,

    • Fweds

      First poster jealous little Sony fanboy, wow that’s unusual eh !.

    • Mark

      Although they do have AI in TitanFall and Drivatars, both powered cloud compute, it’s not OBVIOUS, that the cloud’s working there. We as gamers wanna see explosions, or better graphics etc. that couldn’t be done otherwise on console. So right there, I agree, Microsoft has to prove that statement when they said “The Cloud will make the Xbox One 3 times more powerful”, and I personally think they will. They’re looking to ITERATE ontop of those 2 examples above. Imo, Crackdown’s gonna put up, or shut up……procedural terrain generation and cloud destruction! Lol

    • I’m Flat Out Right

      Xbox One only has 2 major AAA exclusives which are Sunset Overdrive and Forza 5. Everything else is on PC and/or Xbox 360.

      The PS4 has at least 5 major AAA exclusives which are Killzone Shadowfall, Knack, Infamous Second Son, Driveclub, and Bloodborne. These can only be played on the PS4.

      The Xbox defence force is an enormous joke. Lie, lie, lie, and lie some more.

    • Soon as you named knack this comment became bs lmao major exclusive killzone haha *wipe tears*

    • JoinTheRest

      but are they on ps4 dude lmao? nope making them exclusive 🙂

      Then this year for xbox

      That makes it 13 good games to 1
      And next year
      Gears of war 4
      Phantom dust
      Quantum break
      Forza horizon 3
