Microsoft is pushing the envelope of game development, revealing that work has begun on a quadruple-A project.

Yes, Microsoft is no longer satisfied by the lavish production values of a triple-A title, instead setting its sights on AAAA status.

"Microsoft Studios (Xbox) is looking for a dynamic and seasoned executive producer to lead and develop a world-class team who will own the creation and delivery of a AAAA experience that delivers on first party goals and, more importantly, creates a fun gaming experience for our audience," reads a job advert for executive producer, Core Publishing, IEB (Interactive Entertainment Business), Microsoft Studios.

The game is also described as "a major Xbox AAAA console title".

And it doesn't look like we're dealing with a mistake; Microsoft mentions AAAA three times in the ad. Analysis

The question is: Can Microsoft produce a AAAA game for the Xbox 360, or is this only possible on the next Xbox?

Is it just me that whenever AAA ever gets mention just think of a battery?

I hope you're developing AAAA products.

Yeah I know, too much analysis on my part: Administration write job descriptions, they virtually always have no idea what they're writing about. They'll have been given a brief by the respective department and told to fill it in with all the company spiel and mumbo jumbo you usually get on those things.

My brain is in work mode, things get dissected pretty granularly while I have my developer head on :)

The same typo three times in one post? Possibly. But, where's the comedy in that?

Oh damn, move aside Nintendo, EA, Blizzard and Valve, Microsoft is planning to gate crash this party and beat you all...

Seriously I don't think they understand that games don't become popular just by adding another A to the market.

Is it a Microsoft Exclusive?
Is it a shooter?
Will it come out in November?
Will it use Kinect?
Will it be published by Epic or Activision?
Will it have a multiplayer focus?

Is it a new GoW / Spin off CoD that's exclusive / something to with Halo?
