A Microsoft job advert asking for a software development engineer to bring Silverlight to the Xbox 360. "Silverlight is already the development basis of Windows phone 7, and of course already runs on the desktop. Bringing Silverlight to Xbox 360 will effectively bring the platform to TV, and completing Microsoft's "3 screen and a cloud" vision. It'll also effectively make Xbox 360 and Windows phone 7 code-equivalent devices, with both supporting XNA and Silverlight."


It seems that the job posting at Microsoft has been modified and the content specifically mentioning the Xbox has been removed and replaced with "targeting more devices."
