Microsoft may be working on 3D Xbox 720

A new job listing at Microsoft has given a new hint as to what the new gaming console may look like. If the assumption is correct the new Xbox 720 may feature 3D support.

The job listing is looking for an Algorithm Research & Development Engineer for Xbox team who has to join Microsoft in Israel. The applicant must also have a clear understanding of “image processing algorithm and 3D imaging technologies which will serve millions through the world”. In addition the listing says that responsibilities include algorithm design and implementation into state of the art 3D imaging systems.

The new 3D technology in the Xbox 720 may actually turn out to be optional as the new gaming console is expected to include a somewhat outdated Radeon HD 6670 graphics chip in an effort by Microsoft to cut down costs. In addition to these efforts, 3D technology is still expensive and in these difficult economic times there won’t be that many people insisting on mandatory 3D capabilities present in the Xbox 720.

The Xbox 720 is expected to appear at E3 2012 taking place this summer.
