No details are revealed from the advertisement aside from the fact that the console may exist.

It could just be a publicity stunt by Microsoft in order to create a buzz for its next generation gaming system.

It seems like companies such as Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft created technology way ahead of its time with its last generation systems.

The PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 are still putting out games with unbelievable quality.

The premise of the “Real Steel” film is robots who are controlled by humans that participate in boxing matches.

The movie takes place in a time where actual human contact is banned in the sport of boxing and instead, robots are controlled directly by the boxer’s movements and stand in for them putting on a show for fans.

With the advancements in today’s technology, which you can see in gadgets such as the iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S2 and iPad 2, it is not so hard to believe that the next generation of gaming systems could possess this type of capability.

It is almost similar to virtual reality, but much more interactive.

Microsoft has not confirmed that it was working on a new system or even calling it the Xbox 720.

The advertisement in this trailer could have been made for a “what if” future scenario.

At this point it is not clear when a new Microsoft system will drop, or what it will actually be called.
