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.

Oh well, I doubt Microsoft would go as far as calling it the 720
ya, I dont want a new console for a while I'm fine with these games/graphics.... maybe that means itll come out in 2020 and thats cool with me haha...well maybe not that long
Only thing I need for a 720 is to be able to put a game , like Rage, onto one disk like a blu ray can. Otherwise, if its not at least as good, if not better than what you can get from a highend Direct x 11 card, then who cares. Hopefully that's the plan.
It's clearly a pun of sorts.
That's pretty funny. Continuing this gag, by 2020 we'll also have the 'Playstation 4' and the 'Wii U Eye' platforms.(and don't forget the 'iRug' and the '3DSi XL')
Nah, it's probabably just there to emphasise the futuristic nature of the film.
Wait a minute, they say this movie looks crappy but are looking foward to that Time movie with justin timberlake? They both look crappy but really guys?
Yeah the time we get the Xbox 720, we re gonna have boxing robots... Cool
So our way of finding out is by watching a rock'em sock'em robots movie?
Probably a gag but with all the talk recently about the NxtBox720, I don't doubt MS doing some viral stuff.
Yeah...this is a part of the movie and is in no way a revelation of things to come.
Real Steel IS supposed to be set in the future...just saying.
well it is a known fact that some game companys are already working on next gen platform games. just wonder why if that pic is true they stuck whit the xbox 720 name.
I think the FF25 poster beats this one still.
Wow, ***. I don't consider this a professional article.
...it's set in the future. So that makes sense. Actually, isn't this set in the FAR future, since there are fighting robots? So that would never be a scoop at all.
This movie looks hilariously bad. I can't wait to get loaded and yuk it up
