There's an adorable secret hiding inside every Xbox One X

Every Xbox One X Has Engraving of Master Chief Riding a Scorpion It looks like the Xbox One X is hiding Master Chief riding a scorpion on the inside
Frank Williams | 06 October, 2017, 23:08

The image is on the console's circuit board, which means you'll have to crack open the Xbox - or find yourself with a cracked-open Xbox - before it's visible.

The image (via Reddit) clearly shows a miniature Master Chief riding an equally-sized scorpion. This is not a random Easter Egg-Microsoft is paying homage to Halo, a hugely popular game franchise that these days is managed and developed by 343 Industries, a subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, and the Xbox One X's pre-launch codename, Project Scorpio. The scorpion is a nice nod to fans who have been interested in the Xbox One X since the beginning when it was revealed under its code name, Project Scorpio. Eurogamer points out that there's a portrait of him inside the Xbox One S, too.

As very few gamers end up taking apart their console, especially when it costs $500, it's nice that someone found it so owners know it's there without going searching for it.

Ricardo Carvalho given prison sentence for tax fraud in Spain
Carvalho's former clubs also include Porto and Monaco, while he won Euro 2016 with Portugal at global level a year ago . But the length was reduced to seven months and the former Chelsea strongman will only have to pay £128,000.

This isn't the first time Microsoft's included a little Easter egg in an Xbox. To see it in person, you will have to wait until the Xbox One X is released on November 7.

A spokesman for Microsoft wasn't available for comment.

The nifty piece of art supposedly appears inside every Xbox One X console, stamped right onto the PCB. However, it looks as though all allocated stock has been taken leaving the console sold out for now.
