    Xbox Evolved ( is a Xbox editorial site dedicated to keeping gamers up-to-date on Xbox and Xbox 360 reviews, previews, news, and more. We are expanding a bit more in the future and we are always looking to hire new people. Here is what we have available right now:

    Media Coordinator: This person will be required to post up images and movies from press sites, FTP, and emails I forward them from public relations of companies. They will be required to post about the images and movies, resize the images if they are to big, etc. Must have knowledge of FTP, and a program such as Photoshop or Windows Picture It! to resize images. (Will also need to make sure the images are always at 72 dpi).

    Editorialist or Preview writer: Looking for a person who is extremely opinionated about the videogame industry but has the facts to back up their opinions and claims. Looking for people to write about a wide range of topics that effect the gaming industry, gamers, and that will make people think in general. Must show at least one example that is typed up in Microsoft Word (or program compatible with it) size 12 font, Times New Roman, one-three pages. Basic HTML knowledge is a plus.

    Reviews Writer: Need someone who plays games constantly, rather it be renting them, borrowing them, or just buying them. Has a good eye for detail, likes a lot of different genres, etc. People interested will need to write up a one-two page review typed up in Microsoft Word (or program compatible with it), size 12 font, Times New Roman. Basic HTML is a plus. If you want examples please just check out one of our reviews. Try and format your review like that when sending it.

    News Writer: Someone who is always in the know when it comes to the Xbox and Xbox 360. You frequent all kinds of game sites, business sites, and so on looking for the latest news on Xbox. Person will be required to write news stories citing their sources if pulled from another editorial site, or making it easier for the viewers to read if pulled from a press release. News writer will also receive press releases by email.

    May I ask if this is a paying job? (sorry if the answer is obvious, but I did not spot anything on the subject in your post, and the About page states that it is not run by people "being paid for their opinion")

    I can't commit to any of those, I wish I could. But if you need anything done, every now and then (like resizing images, photoshop design work, animations) go ahead and email me at

    good luck with the site, I will definetly bookmark it the day it comes out.I will let all my friends on xbox live know about it (all 99 of them I believe, or whatever the limit is, I have filled my friends list up). I would tell everyone to send messeges to their friends on xbox live about the site. Start by building a grass roots site, and of course, be sure to differentiate your site from all the others.

    could you tell me more about the site design, what is the basic layout and will you have any killer features. If you can afford the bandwidth, I would have a type of feature with something else to add to it.

    Why did you decide to create this site, what experience do you have with this type of site and who is paying start up costs?

    Sorry if I sound like a detective, but I am really into xbox and play it at least 3 hours per day, I have been known to play for 10 hours straight.

    am i bad, I didn't know it was already an active site, although I thought the site name sounded familiar, so why do you need all these people all the sudden? Don't mind the stuff above, didn't check to see if the site already existed until I was done typing. I will still tell me friends about it though.

    I'm sorry, but GFLPraxis writing for an X-Box site made me laugh out loud. :)

    The question still stands, however: is this a paying job? I'm a professional writer, so my interest is certainly piqued.
