Could the Xbox 720 Have Been Promoted In This Feel Good Flick?
A lot of hype was brought about by the movie Real Steel. Fans were suddenly urging Microsoft to release more information about the console after reportedly spotting the Xbox 720 logo in the movie.
The film is based on a short story by Richard Matheson and stars Hugh Jackman. The movie focuses on a father and son who go through the ranks in a competition with the help of their fighting robot. Fans saw the logo in a banner on the right side of the ring in the stadium where the robots fought.
Actually, the logo is the same as the current one except for the numbers and it appears alongside other sponsors. However, since the scenario of the movie is the future in 2020, one can implicitly guess that it is indeed a future product.
Microsoft did not comment on the logo’s appearance in the movie but its for certain that the movie would’ve asked permission to do so.
