Video game developer Rare is hiring a principal network services engineer which is supposed to work on a new project which uses both the Kinect motion tracking system from Microsoft and cloud based technology, which has not yet been used on the Xbox 360.
The job listing says, “Following on from the success of ‘Kinect Sports’ and its recent sequel ‘Kinect Sports: Season Two’, Rare is continuing to push the boundaries of the Kinect hardware with our exciting new project. We’re looking for an experienced and passionate engineer to join us on this journey.”
The fact that the game will be offered on the new Xbox 720
from Microsoft is suggested by another job listing, which talks about an engineer who must work with early prototype hardware and off-site teams.
Neither Microsoft nor Rare have offered comments on the job listings.
