So Microsoft’s efforts are now focused on promoting the Xbox Series X and S, now the very first iteration of the manufacturer is invited into the news, just to prove that it has not yet revealed all its secrets. The worst part is that today’s discovery is not even the last.

For a very long time, industry developers have sometimes compensated for very difficult working conditions with what comes to hand, and hide the opportunity for a find of their own, just to offer a wink to curious players. . But sometimes the handling is so convoluted that no one finally finds out about the doldrums. It is infuriating.
What is on the menu ?
Faced with a glaring absence of discovery, one of the anonymous people responsible for the menu of the first Xbox finally decided to contact our colleagues at Kotaku, and to explain step by step the manipulation to be carried out to discover this easter egg from a long time ago:
- Go to the Music tab and insert an audio CD
- Copy CD from menu as New Album
- Change the name of the album to Timmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! (the letter is present there 26 times)
- Return to the main menu
- Go to the Settings then to the System tab
- Admire the list of designers in the console menu (the capture is available in our image gallery, just to save you a return trip to the cellar)
This will remind the not so young of you of a certain Adventure, the daron in the matter. But one question remains: why did you finally choose to reveal the trick? Kotaku’s anonymous source explains:
It’s been 20 years, and I thought it would be cool for people to know about this secret. It was a bit now or never. It’s been so long since I even remembered the trick to access it! I had to turn my Xbox back on, and do several tries to be sure of myself.
Surprisingly, journalist Alexandra Hall is able to say that this discovery is not the last that the first Microsoft console conceals: one of its designers Seamus Blackley had revealed in 2017 that there was an esater egg that had never been discovered. Contacted by Kotaku, the interested party confirmed that his secret was about the console boot animation, and so he still stood. See you in 20 years?
