New XBOX Live Coming...?

Microsoft's careers websites just created (not on purpose, of course) a brand new and very exciting Xbox Live News that may tell us where the Live platform is headed. According to the first draft of Microsoft's Program Manager job listing (which has since been reworded), the job description reads out like the second coming of Christ Xbox Live, saying:

"Want to be involved in the next release of Xbox? Join the server-backed games team, part of the Xbox Live team that's responsible for creating a completely new way for mainstream audiences to enjoy the Xbox and Live. We're building the games, the console interface and logic, and the server support for a totally new Live experience. Both the games and the dashboard experience will be deeply paired with dynamic server support to create a compelling, fresh scenario each time."

Ooo, fresh scenarios! But what exactly does that mean? We really aren't sure, but it could mean big changes for Xbox Live and big changes for how subscribers use the service in the future. Now that we think about it, we're putting our Vegas money on Xbox Live becoming a virtual reality contrived, Rock Band listening, chatpad enhanced, open Marketplace, ninja-like service with free soda refills. And yes, we have had way too much caffeine this morning.



Also users who are currently on Xbox Live will need to Renew there subscrition to upgrade to this new Xbox Live service with a yearly charge of 80 per year. This gives you access to even more demos trailers and content each year.

1. We pay 40 a year. (Some places you can get if for 35 etc)

2. Yes its practically $2 to the 1.

3. Whats this about LIVE going up to 80 a year!

America would get it cheaper because like Lj just said, we pay 40 = $80. but she just told us she only pays $50.

Meaning if LIVE did go up to 80, looks like in the US they would probably be paying $90 (= 45)

Soem of teh changes look cool.. but i think that them charging us extra for the service is a bit of a piss take.. becuase they should be providiong the best service possible already.. for the 40 a year that they charge..
