The New Xbox One S Has a “Hello From Seattle” Secret Message Hidden in the Back

Apparently the Xbox engineering team loves to hide small Easter eggs on its hardware, as revealed today by Xbox Game Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg during Microsoft’s E3 live coverage.

Even if the detail is too small to actually make out in the picture below (but you can probably still see the position), there’s a “Hello from Seattle” message hidden on the back of the newly announced Xbox One S, which is rather logical considering that the Xbox team is based in Redmond, near Seattle.

This is actually not the first time the message appears on Xbox hardware. If you open the battery bay of your Xbox One controller, you’ll find the same message hidden behind the batteries.

Talk about attention to detail…
