The image of the tomb eventually was picked up by the official Xbox Twitter account, joking: “Oh yes, that’s the Xbox 220 BC.”

Although some people first thought that it was a joke or a marketing stunt, the truth is that the tomb exists and belongs to the Chinese Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC). Furthermore, the tomb’s image is authentic, and more about the discovery can be found in the video posted by the channel CCTV10 on their Weibo account.
