Will There Be an Xbox 720? Hollywood Thinks So.
Real Steel, that new Hugh Jackman flick with fighting robots, is set in a near future, dominated by battling bots. More preciously, the movie is set in 2020.
In one arena scene, corporate logos like Mercedes-Benz, Capital One, and, ahem, Del Taco light up a stadium. There is also a Bing logo and an Xbox 720 logo.
Microsoft’s Bing logo appears elsewhere in the film.
The Xbox 720 hasn’t been announced officially, and smart money says Microsoft will give it a different name entirely.
Yet, hypothetically, here it is on the silverscreen. Make sense as Microsoft is bound to have a new console out well before then.
It’s 2011, so if Microsoft did launch a new Xbox in either 2013 or 2014, that would probably be the end of its lifespan by 2020.
