Microsoft Easter Egg

Posted on by dan schlitzkus

On Microsoft.com we made an easter egg for 8 bit day! We wanted to celebrate Developer's Day, 8 Bit Day and 30 years of Mario without interfering with the homepage content. Someone on our team suggested the Konami Cheat Code (Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) to activate the hidden page. It was only online for 2 days on the weekend (9/12-14).

The response from the internet was rad. The Verge, Business Insider, Softpedia, Tech Times and more.
