'Real Steel' movie trailer causes stir with Xbox 720 logo Although it is likely a joke by the producers of the movie, or possibly even Microsoft to bring some hype, a logo for an "Xbox 720" is visibly seen in the movie trailer for the film "Real Steel."
If you check at 47 seconds into the trailer (embedded below) you can see the logo alongside other logos in the stadium where two robots are preparing to fight.

Of course, there is no official word that Microsoft will name their next console the Xbox 720, and there is no rush as the next console is not expected until at least 2013.

The console launched in 2005 and Microsoft has long held that it will have a decade-long life.

In 2005, Microsoft created some hype for the Xbox 360 by placing an Xbox with a holographic interface into the sci-fi movie "The Island."

Everyone is already calling it the 720, so why should they fight it? Calling the next xbox anything other than the 720 would be like calling the next iPhone something other than iPhone5.
