Last month job listings from Microsoft revealed the company was hiring for a cloud gaming initiative, though the listings didn’t specifically state the program was for the next Xbox. Applicants hired for the positions would “work across internal teams, and with external development partners to drive experiences in gaming that have not been possible before and have not been done before,” a listing said.
In addition to the steaming service, The Journal corroborates claims that Microsoft is working on a television connectivity feature that would allow users to connect the console to their set-top boxes from television service providers. Other possible announcements include “specialized glasses” that will go beyond current 3D glasses technologies and possibly “blend images of the real world with that of a game,” the report states.
