Who does not love a good easter egg? While most tend to be found in games or movies, sometimes even a piece of hardware might hold a surprise for those who go looking.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, and those who decide to pick up Microsoft's latest console can find a small image of a tiny Master Chief riding a scorpion. The adorable picture is well hidden, so someone would have to break open their Xbox One X to see it. Considering how expensive the console is, it might be safer to just check out the video below:

Most powerful console in the world

Microsoft has it pretty easy when it comes to marketing their upcoming device.

The Xbox One X is the most powerful console in the world, a fact which makes for a pretty appealing slogan. While the launch price of $499.99 is quite steep, especially for the console market, the new hardware provides a few reasonable advantages over the PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch.

This version of Microsoft's current generation console offers a substantial boost in the GPU (graphics processing units). This performance bump allows developers to really push the envelope, as there finally is a console capable of handing ultra-high-resolution textures and proper 4K resolutions.

While owners of a 4K TV are set to benefit the most from purchasing the Xbox One X, those of us with only a 1080p TV still receive some advantages.

The console will render everything in ultra-high-definition before downscaling it to 1080p. Although not quite the same thing as 4K, this option is the next best thing.


With such a difference in processing power between the original Xbox One and the upcoming version, some might wonder whether Microsoft plans to release titles only for the new hardware.

So far, that does not seem to be the case. Games will continue to be playable on all versions of the current generation console, just the performance will differ accordingly.

Some already released games like "The Witcher 3" are set to receive an update to take advantage of the Xbox One X's power. It is unlikely that most released titles will receive something similar, but a performance boost should still be visible.

In an interview with Stevivor, Xbox CEO Phil Spencer revealed that while the upcoming console can support virtual reality, he is yet to be convinced that the technology is worth it. While he is a fan of the idea, Spencer believes that we are still a year or two away from when VR becomes a truly immersive experience.
