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.

What are you talking about Matt, this movie looks amazing.
This movie always looked awesome. You'd have to be a huge, cynical, butthole movie snob to look at a movie like this and think it was a joke. I have no idea where the hate for thing popped up on Screened.com or IGN, but I'm glad it's actually getting some good reviews now. It should be successful.
What if it is real cause look to the right and left. I doubt in the future coke will be using the logo they are using now. Im a marketing major and know companies change logo designs every few years.
i really doubt that it will be called the xbox 720. but i hope we keep the 360 for a good while longer. it's in it's prime. no need to get rid of it any time soon
there probobly going to make another xbox but it wont be the 720 its to predictable and stupid sounding.
this gamer has some good eyes.. but the possibilities of the ironic moment when Microsoft releases the new xbox console and calling it, "Xbox720" its just to predictable when you can think of something else you can call it.. so I'd say its just for the time being for the movie so it wouldn't advertise a future reference that's a mere 9 years away, that hard to predict. ;I
i would if i could submit my opinion that i would basically call the next xbox something original, and not TO classy, like; Xbox: Trinity. Or something like that anyhow even though I'm a ps3 person... its the future of gaming that has to have a competition that keeps gaming alive.
that is all =)
Ok, no everybody. There releasing a 720. Every system ever when they released the Slim of that system the New one was soon to follow. PS3 Slim, now PS4. NDS, NDSLite, NDSi, N3DS. It's obvious, the 720 is coming, even though we all want to keep our 360's cause we all have the top 360 and every accessory known to man, there gonna throw a 720 into the mix and there's nothing we can do about it. : / But hey, we'll just have to let it play out.
If you ask me I think the used Xbox 720 in stead Xbox 360 so they wouldn't have to worry about copy rights on the console name.
I really hope the next xbox isn't designated 720.
that's clearly your typical 'Rambo XXV' satire and has nothing to do with reality. On a positive note, Microsoft has less a chance of calling their next system something as stupid as 720.
Real Steel is a good movie. The Xbox 720 add is a nice touch.
highly doubtful of the next system being named the 720.
