Microsoft announced today that Xbox fans can preorder the official Xbox Series X mini fridge on October 19, 2021 for $99.99.

“The mini fridge, created in partnership with Ukonic!, gives ‘Xbox and Chill’ a whole new meaning,” Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg explains. “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 12 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.”

The Xbox Series X mini fridge will cost $99.99. It will be available from Target initially, in the US and Canada, but it’s coming to multiple retailers globally in December. It will be available in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, and Poland then as well. And then Microsoft will expand regional availability in 2022, pending regulatory approvals and restrictions by market.

As Microsoft explains, the mini fridge started as a viral meme and then turned into a 6-foot, 400 pound, 1:1 scale replica of the flagship videogame console. And thanks to requests from fans, Microsoft has made it a reality.
