Anyone else see the final fantasy poster? I think it was in the port level but I can't remember. It was a picture of an anime character with her head blocking the title so it just said "final... ntasy". I guess it doesn't matter since they're both square IP.
 
Any other easter eggs in this game? Post 'em here.

Robocop easter egg in the Police station, top floor office two cops are talking about the first Robocop film you have to go through the vents to hear it though. Another one would be in Adam's apartment the kitchen is straight out of Bladrunner.

A lot of people have probably caught this one already, but if you happen to "wander" into the ladies' restroom at the Sarif Headquarters, Pritchard will have a few choice words for you if you speak to him afterward. 
  
Also, this game needs more Robocop references, because that and Bladerunner are all I can think about while I play the damn thing.

You can hear someone in the streets of Detroit and China whistle the original Deus Ex main menu music.

In one of the alleys in Detroit you can hear a scream that sounds just like a lady that's being chased by the Many at the beginning of System Shock 2.

I pretty sure the break music that plays during that radio show is the unatco theme.

Some of the bathrooms in the Hengsha Garden Apartments have the three shells from Demolition Man.

There's also the dopefish graffiti. And the first code you type it 0451 was the code used in Deus Ex for the UNATCO HQ Sat-Com wagon.

Isn't that a stock sound effect? I could *swear* I've heard it in a number of places, and it's been driving me nuts.

At Sarif HQ, I heard a couple guys near an elevator talking about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. It's even funnier now that Jobs stepped down as CEO.

Oh, there's also a bunch of kilroys around Hengsha. I don't know if they're anywhere else, though.

I heard there are some 4chan references throughout the game. 

I don't know if this is still in the game, though.
 
Also, any Lost references?

@Legxend:

And one of those cops is named Alex Murphy.

@valrog: No that was in early artwork images. It's not in the game. Wouldn't really make sense anyway, kind of late for that kind of political commentary.

I mentioned this in another thread, but some of the computers in the main areas of the police station have usernames like Deckard and P_Dick.

There is a reference to the Skull-gun on a tablet near one of the plot characters you confront as well as on Sarif's computer.

There was a Big Lebowski reference in one of the side missions.

There was a dude that got beaten pretty badly by some sort of special agents and when you find him he's talking to one of the aggressors and says "And you better give me a new rug... It really tied the room together..."

I'm sure it's not as bad as if you do in the original Deus Ex (lady inside runs out screaming like you killed someone).

@Red12b: No, it's the one in this vid at 3:32.
 
It could be a Stock sound effect, but I've never heard it anywhere else before.

@Red12b: Nah, not the Wilhelm.  
 
What bugs me about the scream is that it gives me chills to hear, so I had to have heard it in something that scared me or made me jump. I know it wasn't SS2, which I could never get running for long.

 There are a lot of great easter eggs. They must have spent ages shoving them in to every corner of the game. I think this one hasn't been mentioned yet.

One of the computers in the Police station has "RDeckard" as its login ID.

@Legxend:Actually, I just walked into the cops office when they were talking about RoboCop (so you don't have to be in the airducts), and one of them said something like "We were just talking about you" and "Do you know 80's movies?". I missed the Blade Runner kitchen reference, BTW
