The lights are on
Hugh Jackman's new robot fighting movie Real Steel looks incredibly stupid. However, it might have provided us with one of the biggest video-game scoops of the year. In a new trailer for the game, an observant gamer spotted an Xbox 720 logo in a shot of in-arena advertising in the trailer.Does this mean that next Microsoft console is indeed called the Xbox 720? Considering the film takes place in 2020, it's most definitely a gag. You almost caught us, though.Nonetheless, I've blown up a still from the trailer so you can see it a big larger. You can also watch the trailer for yourself below. The logo is at the 0:46 mark.
Big thanks to GI.com reader Joe for the news tip.

I would assume that a new x-box would be out by then....whether or not it's going to be called the 720, dunno, but I doubt it.
This means nothing, you would think they would at least come up with a new brand for it. They are making a play on their current brand which people still recognize as an XBOX360,a product currently still on high demand in the marketplace.
I have never seen a boxer, let alone a 4 ton robot boxer, jump to deliver a hook to an opponent. Why would a trained athlete, who's not in MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Capoeria, or any other sport that would use such a move try that? It looks like he's trying to do a fade away, which would be for basketball, which is also not a combat sport...Unless you're Kobe Bryant.
Or it means nothing at all. Just a writing tool that links the viewer to the futuristic setting of Real Steel.
intresting while possibly/ probly not the real name you know considering the rumor/leaks last couple days that its not that far off its probly accualy real and called that as a codename :/
Oh, come on! That would be like watching Back to the Future 2 and thinking the next Jaws movie is going to be Jaws 19: "This time its REALLY REALLY Personal". Real Steel is a movie set to take place in a made-up near future, thus some made-up advertisements. In the words of Comic Book Guy "Worst...scoop...ever."
