December 15, 2003 - With the release of the Xbox's successor slowly - and we mean slowly - approaching, it's about time for Microsoft to hire some new help. And that's exactly what they're doing.

Posted on Microsoft's website are job openings for a Program Manager/Engineer, and Software Development Engineers. The first job's duty will primarily focused on creating and managing the Xbox Game Disc used for the Xbox 2. Though developing media may not sound that interesting a job, it's an essential part of the game console process. The listing emphasizes Anti-Piracy, game development, publishing, and test equipment development among the responsibilities laid upon the applicant.
