Today, Microsoft revealed new details about its upcoming next-generation console, the Xbox Series X. Everything from the specifications, to advanced features like audio ray tracing, were discussed in lengthy interviews and hands-on sessions with various outlets and YouTubers. However, the teardown of the device revealed a tiny surprise, just like the one inside the Xbox One X.
While the Xbox One X features Halo's legendary hero, Master Chief, riding a scorpion, the Xbox Series X features Master Chief's helmet stamped inside. XBM Network on Twitter managed to capture the image from the video.

The helmet looks identical to the logo for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Let's hope that this is an indication that the games will be enhanced for Xbox Series X, too, but Microsoft hasn't confirmed anything as of yet. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
