Siri's Konami Code Easter Egg has three different responses to tell you
A new Easter Egg has been discovered for iOS and the iPhone that is based on the Konami Code. The latter is a sequence of controller button presses that was created as a cheat by games developer Kazuhisa Hashimoto, who used to work for Konami.

On the PlayStation, the code would be Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, O, X.
