The day has finally arrived where everyone is checking their delivery status for their brand new next-gen console – the Xbox Series S/X. As you start to familiarize yourself with your controller and eagerly setting everything up, you may notice a nice little surprise on the Xbox’s power supply. After one Reddit user began to check out their swanky system, they discovered a cool easter egg based on one of Microsoft’s most popular franchises engraved on the power supply of their Xbox Series S.

Back when the Xbox One X and One S launched in 2017, fans noticed that Microsoft had placed a tiny Master Chief lovingly hidden on the optical disc drive bracket of the console and now it seems they are wanting to make this a tradition as they move into next-gen. According to Reddit, on the Xbox Series S’ PSU, there is a tiny Halo Master Chief’s helmet etched for all to see. Doing some digging around, the image from Reddit seems to belong to YouTuber Modern Vintage Gamer as they filmed their teardown of the Xbox Series S to take a closer look at what’s inside. After popping off the power supply, Modern Vintage Gamer stated that it was a nice touch and that “Microsoft was banking heavily on Halo Infinite being apart of their Series X and Series S plans but, unfortunately, that was not to be at launch”.

As you most likely have heard in August, Halo Infinite was officially pushed back the title to 2021 and stated that it would no longer be launching in tandem with the Xbox Series X this year. We also heard the news that 343 Industries’ Chris Lee, who served as a director on Halo Infinite, is now said to have left the project altogether after his role with it was said to be essentially done away with. In other Xbox news, it has been recently reported by a Reddit user that the Xbox Series S available storage on the console is 364 GB which is equal to 71% of the total storage. Although this hasn’t been confirmed yet, 364 GB isn’t a lot of space especially so with the volume of games growing dramatically since the start of the current generation of consoles.
