Every Xbox One X has a little Halo Master Chief riding a scorpion inside

Aside from the standard Microsoft engraving found in each console, every unit also contains a tiny cartoon Master Chief from Halo. "So what? Every Xbox One S has a Master Chief!" you may say… but hold on. This Master Chief is riding a scorpion and is stamped into each console as a nod to the Xbox One X's "Project Scorpio" codename.

While it's unlikely many future Xbox One X owners will get to see it given the fact that opening the housing voids the warranty, you'll always know it's there. There's some satisfaction in that at least.

You can see it in the video here below.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, 2017 and is the most powerful console ever made. The device features 6 TFLOPS of processing power and 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. In addition to that, the Xbox One X also contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive. For those looking to make the most of their gaming experience—no matter if it's the desire for higher resolutions or more stable frame rates—the console is the device for you. And hey, it comes with a mini Chief engraving.

The Xbox One X is currently available to preorder for $499 or equivalent depending on your region. The console is launching simultaneously worldwide so chances are you'll be able to find it in your region on November 7.

  • I want that logo on a t-shirt now! Take my money!
  • The site is not Spanish, it’s Mexican.
  • I believe he was referring to the language not the country of origin.
  • Actually that's Mister Chief I do believe. 😊
  • Seagate, good decision :P
  • I think Seagate sells Microsoft the cream of the admittedly weak crop. I still use only WD for all my data when given the choice on spinning platter tech. I've only had one fail out of hundreds in personal rigs over the years. Still have tons of my old drives from 10-20+ years ago in external enclosures. Contents backed up elsewhere of course. It's my only weird obsession. I hate losing even old data. I'm a digital hoarder. 😜
  • WD is much more expensive though. I do buy WD when I can for personal drives, but for mass producing consoles it would probably drive the cost up
  • yes i have an adblocker you nitwit. yes i have it on purpose so i dont see stupid ads. no i wont turn it off.
  • Random aggression towards no one? Rage like that should be looked at.
  • WOW THIS IS AMAZING!!! OMG!!! WHAT A SURPRISE!!!!
  • Need this on a t-shirt and stickers!
  • Instead of this bs, when will they come out with actual benchmark? Are we less than one month before launch? Why aren't there any benchmark showing the "power"?
