The Halo Infinite-themed Xbox Series X limited edition console is hiding some neat secrets referencing 343's sequel.
As first reported earlier today by The Verge (opens in new tab), users who were lucky enough to get their hands on the new limited edition Xbox Series X have discovered it houses a number of hidden details. For example, if you shine a black or UV light on the front of the console itself, it'll reveal a Zeta Halo symbol, as you can see in the discovery from a Reddit user just below.
Next up is another hidden secret involving a UV light. If you happen to shine the light on the packaging for the Halo Infinite-themed Xbox Series X controller, an image of the classic 'Duke' controller will show up on the packaging instead where you're shining the light.
Yes!!! And the new 20th anniversary Xbox controller, it has the old controller from 2001 when you shine the black light on it! pic.twitter.com/DriHhsIuenNovember 16, 2021
Last but not least, you'll actually earn an-game weapon charm for your Halo Infinite guns if you purchase the limited edition controller. You can see an example from the Twitter user just below, where they reveal that a weapon charm resembling the controller itself is attached to the side of their assault rifle in the Halo Infinite open multiplayer beta.
