A slim really makes sense IMO. PS4 upgrade might be been reactionary, but was more due to PSVR. Microsoft has no such thing (yet), so a cheap console to help an already "lost" console generation makes sense to me.
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?
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.
