"Xbox One second generation" is apparently a thing on a Chinese production line right now

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: 

New Project 

AP5 XBOX One 2nd Gen Project

Project Start Time 2014 March

Client : Microsoft

Product : XBox One 2nd Gen 

Machine : Kingston

Estimated Shipment : Maximum 400K / week

Plastic Product Unit weight : 600 ~ 800g

Current Status : AP(V) work with client co-develop and certify Sabic & Chill raw material

EVT D : Now

Hard Tool Development : Oct -- delay

MP ( Mass Production ) : Feb

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). 

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
