Seeks to create a 'game console-based TV experience.'
According to a job listing on Google Jobs, the company could be developing 'versions of YouTube to work with next generation game consoles.'
This one was spotted in a job listing on Google Jobs. Apparently, the company is hiring a Game Console Software Engineer to develop "versions of YouTube to work with next generation game consoles."
So, you should expect YouTube to invade next-gen. And looks like, this time we will be able to watch videos properly on our home consoles. Let's hope so!The listing notes that the engineer will "build the next generation game-console-based TV experience with YouTube video content" and "integrate and optimize with distribution channels and devices including all major game platforms." It also specifically notes that candidates will need "deep technical knowledge of Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and/or Nintendo Wii." YouTube already exists as an app for Xbox 360, so this position could be to expand the service onto the PS3 and Wii-U markets.
