Ready Player One

Factual error: The third key Easter egg was actually a color-changing flashing pixel in the Atari Adventure game. You had to grab the purple bridge (they looked like outward facing brackets) and go into a box in the lower left corner of the blue maze and move along the bottom left corner. In the movie, it was picked up in the invisible maze. The wall you walk through then flashes along with the pixel, and you may move through it as shown in the movie to see the author's name.

Suggested correction: That isn't a factual error. It's a creative change from the source material. A factual error is something based in reality...not a fictional book.

Adventure was a real game, made in 1982, and therefore any factual errors about the game are entirely valid. The 1982 version is what Halliday played, not any others, so it would be logical that the Easter Egg from the 1982 version would apply here.

Trivia

In the video that Halliday left behind after his death, you see floral arrangements around his coffin that are in the shape of the Star Trek's Federation symbol and one of the Enterprise. But the really cool thing is his coffin is actually a photon torpedo, exactly like Spock was put in after his death at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Complete with the blue Federation flag draped over the end of it.
