Notice how the "II" part is in Chinese. So this is not the official name. It's just saying it's Xbox One Model 2 --> Slim.

I here in China there are individuals who have the letter "X" in their names also the production or assembly of many electronics occur there. Any coincidence?

Well, 二代 in romaji is nidai, nidaime can mean second generation.

Second generation Xbox One. Were there any minute changes to the Xbox One that anyone remembers? Like when the PS3 started being manufactured with the smaller scale processor from 90 nm to 65 nm to 45 nm? And that just reduced power consumption?

Maybe these are already on the market?

I'd likely interpret it as 'XBox One, Revision 2'

Not a PS4K or NX equivalent, just the standard hardware refreshes you get each console cycle, though probably more significant than the small changes they do constantly.

The lack of leaks from the production makes me doubt this. Plus it seems too early, even for a holiday launch.
The 360 slim was kept relatively close to the chest prior to its E3 2010 announcement, and its was on store shelves a couple weeks later.

We got a production rumor in March, and we didn't see what it looked like until the day before the unveiling.

But Phil already said there won't be a .5 version.
Phil was referring to not releasing a spec-improved upgraded Xbox. A slim revision isn't the same as a PS4K upgraded console; it could just be a form factor change to reduce manufacturing costs, which has happened in many other gens.

Pointed this out in the other thread.



Uh, 800g is only like 1.7lbs.

Doesn't the Xbox One currently weigh like 3000g or 6-7lbs.

That would be a HUGE difference. Or is that just for some component?
If not a component, no optical drive is the only way it hits that weight.
