It would appear that a job listing over at Microsoft as been revealed today that points at the fact that Microsoft wants to implement Silverlight into the Xbox 360.

Now try not to get confused as some of you are already aware that the Xbox 360's Dashboard already utilizes Silverlight, but current rumours suggest that maybe Microsoft are looking into using it for Arcade Games for the Marketplace.

If this is indeed true then anybody who is still yet to pick up a Windows Phone for the games may not need to anymore, as this would mean all games on the Zune Marketplace could be ported over to the 360's Marketplace for console users to play.

This is only a rumour for now though and we shall keep you informed as we learn more about this.
