You know, it's interesting what kind of stuff you can find on the Microsoft Careers site (thanks for the link Joystiq). Direct Physics? Now that sounds interesting. If current market trends are any indication (like Ageia's PhysX Processor), this could be an interesting piece of news. Of course, with the fact that DirectPlay, DirectInput, DirectDraw, and others have all been deprecated or removed, it's interesting to think that Microsoft might be revamping DirectX by bringing in other technologies to it.

With all the clues making it seem like Direct3D was the only viable DirectX-based technology left in the fray, I can't help but have my interest piqued by this job posting. And of course, with all the XNA Framework going on, I'm curious how this might fit into that as well.

Regardless, I have a feeling that no matter what happens, we are going to hear exciting game development news out of the big M in the coming year or two.
