The Xbox Mini Fridge is not just a meme anymore. Here’s what we know so far about this appliance from Microsoft, including the release date and more.
Published on June 14th, 2021
After the reveal of the Xbox Series X back in 2020, a bunch of memes popped up, joking about how Microsoft’s most powerful console ever looks like a Mini Fridge. Taking the memes several steps further, Microsoft has actually created the Xbox Mini Fridge. In a “World Premier” trailer after the main Microsoft & Bethesda E3 presentation, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox Mini Fridge is actually real, with the tagline “Xbox and chill”. Yes, there’s a release date window, and fans will be able to buy an Xbox Mini Fridge this year.
Xbox Mini Fridge release date
While there’s no exact release date for the Xbox Mini Fridge, Microsoft has revealed you can “Xbox and Chill” in Holiday 2021.
At the time of writing, it is unclear if the Xbox Mini Fridge will be available to buy worldwide, or exclusive to some stores in the United States. We will update you once we know more.
Xbox Mini Fridge price and specs
Microsoft has not yet revealed the price of the Xbox Mini Fridge. However, as this appears to be a very niche, and possibly limited-edition appliance, you can expect to pay a premium price.
While it shouldn’t be as expensive as the actual Xbox Series X it is modelled after, one never knows. With standard appliances of this nature costing between 50 and 100 USD, we expect the Xbox Mini Fridge to price at around 100 to 200 USD…this is just a guestimate.
In terms of specs, well, don’t expect 12 teraflops of performance. Instead, we can only assume the Xbox Mini Fridge has the same specs as a standard one, possibly drawing a bit more power due to all the lighting.
