Microsoft’s Xbox Series X mini fridge will cost buyers $99.99 and it will be available for pre-orders in the US, UK, Canada, and Europe starting October 19. According to a new Xbox blog post, a real mini-fridge that looks almost like the next-gen console will hold up to 12 cans of your favorite beverages, two shelves, a door for your favorite snacks, and so on. The Xbox X mini-fridge costs $99.99 (£89.99) and is available to pre-order in the US, UK, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere from October 19.
As for the actual details of the refrigerator itself, the Xbox has provided potential buyers with a better description of what to expect. Greenberg also linked to a post on Microsoft’s website detailing the fridge and its availability. According to the Post, the Xbox Series X Mini fridge will give Xbox a whole new chill meaning. Unlike the full-size $500 refrigerator, Microsoft makes it a one-time version. Unlike the Xbox X refrigerator, the company will pre-order a version for the US and Canada on Tuesday, October 19.
The latest Xbox Wire blog post indicates that pre-orders will begin on October 19 with several retailers selling its highly anticipated Xbox Series X Mini refrigerator which will come on the market in December 2021. Microsoft plans to supply the mini-refrigerators to additional markets in the coming years, but cannot rely on regulatory approvals and restrictions in some countries. For fans in Europe, the Xbox Series X mini-refrigerators will be available for PS89.99 in the UK, while fans in France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, and Poland will be able to access it for €99.00.
It all started as memes as the Xbox revealed that it is preparing to release a mini-refrigerator model of the Xbox console in 2021. While Microsoft has poked fun at the fridge-shaped shape of its new Xbox Series X console since its launch, the circle has come full circle with the new Xbox Mini-refrigerator, which can be pre-ordered next week. Promotional material from the fridge mentions the cooling architecture of the Xbox series X, so let’s imagine that it will do a good job of keeping things cool. It also rolls out with the ability to carry up to 12 cans of Tall Boy lemonade and energy drinks as well as two mini-shelf snacks.
Developed in partnership with Ukonic, the mini-fridge is similar to the Xbox X series, has LEDs, can hold up to 12 cans of your favorite beer or beverage, has a USB port to charge your devices, and is equipped with a DC power supply so you can use your refrigerator on the go. There is no form of purchase yet in Spain, but Xbox said it will be available through Game Stop in Europe, Micromania, Tynk, and Amazon.
After responding to memes comparing its unique design to a fridge, Microsoft produced a real Xbox X refrigerator last year and sent it to influencer Ijustine and rapper Snoop Dogg. However, in April the company changed its mind when it confirmed its plans to begin production and selling the mini-fridge after winning a Twitter marketing contest tying the most popular brands against each other.
Microsoft announced earlier this year on Twitter that it had won enough votes to make an Xbox Series X Mini, a long-standing joke about a console that looks like a console. Thanks to Ukonic, its main partner in developing the miniature refrigerator, the effort to give consumers a whole new meaning to the popular expression “Xbox Chill” has taken on a whole new meaning. The 18-inch product bears a meme: When Microsoft unveiled the Xbox X series, Internet users noticed that the console bore an uncanny resemblance to a refrigerator.
