So you mean the fourth-gen Xbox around say perhaps 2020, not the upcoming one. Even by 2020+, which would be 10+ years after Avatar came out, it still might be too difficult to pull off in real-time. We still haven't reached Toy Story level graphics in realtime and that movie came out in the mid 1990s.
