A really real Halo 3 Da Vinci Code Easter egg

Usually video games are chalk full of secret images, objects or jokes that we call Easter eggs and are things developers hide in their game for the sole reason of having fun hiding stuff.

Looks more like a UV checkerboard, used in a lot of 3D applications for ensuring that textures don't stretch too badly, etc. etc. No secret message there, just the alphabet.

Edit: Apparently someone beat me to it, that's what I get for not reading.
