Not content with simply being able to access Xbox LIVE from your Xbox 360 and your PC? A recent job listing is hinting that Microsoft may be looking to fill the gap between Xbox LIVE and Windows Mobile devices.
Microsoft is currently looking for a Principal Program Manager to bring "Xbox LIVE enabled games to Windows Mobile." This would also included "avatar integration, social interaction, and multi-screen experiences."
There are already plenty of ways to view your Xbox LIVE friends list on your mobile phones, with various programs already available for iPhone and even Android-based mobile devices. But this sounds like it's taking it a step further, particularly with the mention of "multi-screen experiences."
Linking your Xbox 360 to your mobile device could allow for some interesting experiences, but let's not forget, it's been done before. Nintendo did a similar thing with the Game Boy Advance and the GameCube via a link cable, giving birth to some pretty killer games like the excellent Pac-Man Vs.
We'll just have to wait and see if Microsoft has something a bit more ambitious up its sleeve... and how many people who own 360s also own Windows Mobile devices in 2010.
