The Cyberpunk 2077 Custom Xbox One Has A Secret Message On It
The tiny detail shows the incredible thought that has been put into this console.
Fans have started to receive their limited edition Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox Ones, and one Reddit user quickly stumbled across a secret bit of code. User Eversmans037 found a small section of writing on his new Cyberpunk Xbox--but that was just the start of it.
In a small square on the back of the machine, the words Uniform, Victor, Mike, and Echo are listed. Anyone familiar with the NATO phonetic alphabet will recognize these words as stand-ins for single letters spelling "UV me".
After the message was decoded, Eversmans037 posted an update on what he found when he used a UV light on the back section of the console--a sweet message from CD Projekt Red.
The message reads, "many languages, one message," followed by "thank you" printed in 15 different languages. This is capped off with "CD Projekt Red - Xbox" at the end.
You can see the process in this video by YouTuber RevTheGame, with the secret message being displayed around 56 seconds in. If you're looking to check out the message for yourself, sadly the limited Xbox One is already sold out.
We've seen this attention to detail in Cyberpunk 2077's marketing before, such as a high res wallpaper hiding numerous easter eggs, interesting details, and hidden messages.
Cyberpunk 2077 is scheduled to release on September 17, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. It is also planned to release on the PS5 and Xbox Series X in the future.
