Okay, this could be anything I’ll admit that much, but this screen appears to contain the phrase “Xbox One second generation” on what I’m guessing is some kind of production line machine.
There’s a lot of rumours floating around currently about either an upgraded Xbox (opens in new tab), or a revised Xbox Slim (opens in new tab) of some kind. The full translation of this screen (via NeoGAF (opens in new tab) so, you know, make of that what you will) is as follows:
AP5 XBOX One 2nd Gen Project

A lot of people are looking at that ‘unit weight’ bit and suggesting it must be a slim, given that the current Xbox One currently weighs over 3KG. However, the ‘plastic product’ bit makes me wonder if it’s just the casing being produced here.
However, while I’m guessing wildly, Major Nelson seems to have weighed in on the affair, tweeting (opens in new tab) this exchange out:
It’s not exactly a denial is it? The other part of the ‘both’ bit is referring to some COD 4 references he made, causing everyone to decide he was confirming the Modern Warfare Remaster (he totally was).
