Hidden inside the hardware of the special Scorpio edition of the Xbox One X is an graving of Master Chief. Riding a scorpion.
No, that’s not a joke.
YouTube channel Unocero broke down the new Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition console earlier this week, checking out each component of the powerful predecessor to the Xbox One. While doing so, they pointed out this engraving on the motherboard:
That would be the protagonist of the Halo series, Master Chief, riding on top of a giant scorpion as if it was a horse (or maybe a Ghost).
Master Chief is the most recognizable video game character exclusive to Xbox systems, and the scorpion upon which he is riding is a reference to the codename for the Xbox One X: Scorpio.
If you managed to preorder an Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, just be careful if you want to tear apart your console to see the easter egg, please.
