Microsoft revealed more details about the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge in a press release, which will be available for pre-order on October 19th.
Microsoft’s Xbox Series X Mini Fridge will be available for pre-order next week. Thanks to Microsoft’s sense of humor, what began as a joke has now become a reality. Fans compared the Xbox Series X console’s rectangular design to that of a refrigerator after it was unveiled as Project Scarlett at E3 2019. Microsoft was amused by the joke and even sent Snoop Dog an Xbox Series X refrigerator for his birthday. It has now been confirmed that the Xbox Series X mini-fridge will be available for purchase by the general public.
In April, Alan Greenberg, Microsoft’s general manager of marketing, tweeted that if Xbox won Twitter’s “Best Of Tweets: Brand Bracket” competition, the Xbox mini-fridge would become a reality. Xbox fans banded together to vote after hearing this promise. Xbox won the competition, and the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge will be available for purchase this holiday season, as promised. During Xbox’s E3 2021 showcase in June, fans got a first look at the design of the mini-fridge. In September, Microsoft promised that more information on the Xbox mini-fridge would be released this month.
Microsoft provided more details about the Xbox Series X mini-fridge in a press release written by Greenberg, which will be available for pre-order on October 19th. The mini-fridge was developed in collaboration with Ukonic and will retail for $99.00 in the United States, £89.99 in the United Kingdom, and €99.00 in several European countries. The fridge is a one-to-one scale replica of the console, standing six feet tall and weighing 400 pounds. The sleek matte-black tower is lit by LEDs and has a USB port for charging devices and a DC power adapter for use on the go. The mini-fridge door has two shelves that hold up to ten cans of a fan’s favorite beverage. With a design like this, one must wonder if it was inspired by this Xbox Series X refrigerator fan art. The press release included a photo of the Xbox Series X console and the mini-fridge replica side by side. In addition to the pre-sale on October 19th, the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge will be available worldwide in December.
In 2022, Microsoft plans to expand the mini-regional fridge’s availability so that Xbox fans from all over the world can buy it. Given the meme’s popularity and Microsoft’s willingness to join in on the joke, there will undoubtedly be many fans who want the mini-fridge replica. Fans can follow Xbox on Twitter for more information and learn how to purchase the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge.
The Xbox Series X Mini Fridge isn’t the first time Microsoft has been linked to a refrigerator. One gamer was able to play Doom Eternal on a Samsung Smart Fridge thanks to Microsoft’s xCloud streaming service. Fans will soon play video games on their Xbox Series X console while enjoying cold drinks and snacks from their Xbox Series X Mini Fridge.
