The Future Soon

Obviously we're much closer to the 'future,' 2015 than we are to the 'present' of the films, 1985.

Anyone else a little curious about how they are going to handle this? I mean, there's no getting away from the fact that BTTF's future is way more advanced in some ways (flying cars, hoverboards, cyborg style implants, weather control, Mr. Fusion, Jaws 19!) and less in others (Display technology, 3D effects and fax machines... really?) than the real 2015 is realistically likely to be.

It would surely have to be the case that they take BTTF's 2015 as canon, in my opinion. But how are they going to do it in the game, I wonder... is it going to be set in the present day, but one which is close to the 2015 of BTTF? Is it still going to centre around 1985? Will we get to see even further into BTTF's future? How are they going to explain that weirdness to newcomers to the franchise?

Of course, there's no way of knowing... but fun to speculate after I watched part 2 again last night.
