Xbox 360 and PlayStation owners may have a special YouTube video channel to look forward to for their viewing pleasure. According to a recent job listing, YouTube is looking for a new Game Console Software Engineer to join its ranks at the video company’s San Bruno office in California.
The job listing states that the software engineer will be working on “the next generation game-console-based TV experience with You Tube video content,” and will “integrate and optimize with distribution channels and devices including all major game platforms.”
YouTube is already viewable via the specialized web browsers on the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, but it sounds YouTube has something bigger in mind, possibly something similar to the Netflix Watch Now setup on XBLA and the PSN. Note that under the responsibilities section, the job listing also says “Develop leading edge User Interface and delight users with innovative media rich solutions.”
