A curious new job listing
for Netflix seeks an "Engineering Leader -- Gaming Platforms," reports Gamasutra
. The applicant is expected to have experience developing and testing media rich applications, and should be prepared to "rapidly prototype and iterate on a variety of platforms."
Either Netflix is getting into the game streaming
space, or this may be another sign that Netflix streaming is coming to other consoles
. Considering the relative success
of Netflix on Xbox 360, it's not surprising that the company would like to expand its service and branding to other consoles -- that is, if this "Engineering Leader" can figure it out.Update
: A Netflix spokesperson got back to us and said, "We're always looking to grow. For now our game console is Xbox 360."
