With new hardware, you can always expect someone to take it apart piece-by-piece. Well, that’s exactly what happened. What people discovered hiding in the Xbox One S hardware is a sentimental touch to Xbox’s most popular franchise, Halo.

The XboxUK Twitter account has since tweeted about it but the story started on Reddit where an eagle-eyed user discovered this very neat little homage to Halo. Let me just say that I think this is incredibly cool and I like the message that it sends. For me, it shows that Microsoft and the Xbox team have a very real stake in the hardware and they’re imbuing their passion into the box by doing this. Kudos.
