They say that if you put in a lot of hours in an open-world RPG like Starfield, you’ll be bound to find stuff that other people could not find. X user Niko Mueller, a self-professed big Starfield fan who regularly publishes content on the Elon Musk-owned website, discovered a few old-world items after several NG+ runs.

These old-world items are a VHS tape and a portable CD player. These may not be as significant a find to most players, but for us, this is an additional layer of wordless storytelling in Bethesda’s newest space exploration RPG.

Why? It’s because, even today, these devices are considered archaic and vintage. Finding them within a game set more than 200 years after this time as decorative items indicates how humanity treats items from the old Earth in Starfield.

In a nod to their vintage nature, Niko Mueller asks in his post: “[I] wonder how many players even know what that is.” Not a lot, we daresay.

When asked by another user about the location of the items, he said that he stole them from a store in Neon, probably the Emporium.

This is not the first time this X user posted something that shook the playing community. Niko was the user who said that he’d met his original character in his 33rd NG+ run and recruited her into his current team.

Niko was also the brain behind a huge outpost with a fully equipped and functional production facility where all resources from his other outposts are transferred to and processed.
