It’s happening. From a meme back in 2019 to a real product in 2021. Microsoft is opening pre-orders for the Xbox Series X mini fridge on October 19th. The fridge will be available for pre-order in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland. The mini fridge will cost 100 dollars, 100 euros or 90 pounds.
The mini fridge is supposed to arrive in other countries in 2022. But no further information has been given on when this will happen.
The press release from Microsoft contains some more details on the Xbox Series X mini fridge:
”The mini fridge, created in partnership with Ukonic!, gives “Xbox and Chill” a whole new meaning. With LEDs and surface-features made to resemble the Xbox Series X, your friends will be amazed while their thirst is quenched! The sleek matte-black tower holds up to 10 cans of your favorite beverage and has two shelves in the door, so you’ll be sure to have your favorite snacks at the ready. The front of the mini fridge also includes a USB port to charge devices and comes with a DC power adapter to enable the mini fridge to work on the go.
Here just in time for the holidays, the Xbox “Mini Fridge” will go on pre-sale on October 19 and will arrive in multiple retailers globally in December 2021.
In the first wave of production, the Xbox “Mini Fridge” will be available at Target and on Target.com for $99.99, our exclusive retailer in the US. Fans in Canada will also be able to purchase online via Target.com.
Additionally, for fans in Europe, the Xbox “Mini Fridge” will be available from GAME in the UK (£89.99); and fans in France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, and Poland can grab their own at Game Stop EU (€99.00), Micromania (€99.00) or Toynk (via Amazon).
We’re working to bring the Xbox Mini Fridge to as many fans as possible and will continue to expand regional availability in 2022, pending regulatory approvals and restrictions by market.”
