Sam & Max for XBLA?

Telltale "evaluating new platforms".

Telltale has admitted it would "look closely" at releasing a potential Sam & Max project via Live Arcade.

Speculation about such a project was inevitable after Telltale posted a job advert for a 360 programmer on its website.

A Telltale spokesperson responded to the barrage of questions by saying: "We can confirm that we're hiring an Xbox 360 programmer, although we do not have any official Xbox project announcements to share right now.

"Telltale is continually evaluating new platforms - not only for Sam & Max but for other projects we have in the works. We're huge supporters of digitally distributing episodic content, and this has been working very well for our current Sam & Max series on the PC.

"For a potential Sam & Max Xbox project, we'd certainly look closely at a downloadable digital solution like the Live Arcade."

So there you have it. Nothing confirmed, but a clear admission that a Sam & Max project may well end up on the Microsoft platform eventually.

The question is, would Telltale simply port over the current six-part PC series, or try something new on Live Arcade?
