The OnLive news from last week is slowly sinking in, but it seems Redmond-based company, Microsoft, are looking to grab some developers from the mass layoffs of OnLive. Microsoft explain in a description listed on events site, EventBrite:

We are eager to speak to individuals and teams affected by the OnLive transition. With the stunning success of Xbox/Kinect and the accelerated growth of this business, we are looking to add key players who want to make a real impact in creating groundbreaking new products and services.

 

The positions are open in Mountain View, and Microsoft's HQ in Redmond, Washington. Considering Microsoft found OnLive a "potential acquisition target" back in August of 2010, this news is definitely interesting. It looks like Microsoft sat back, let the chips fall, and will now benefit by treating some people better by offering them some great jobs.
