It’s official that Xbox Mini-Fridges are being pre-ordered and will be available in households by December this year.
After a Xbox cable Post, pre-orders will go live on October 19 and will arrive at several retailers around the world in December. It costs £ 89.99 ($ 99.99 / € 99.99) and will be available exclusively through Target in the US and GAME in the UK, while the other available European countries can get it through Game Stop EU, Micromania or Toynk.
This is the “first wave” of production, with Microsoft Regional availability is to be expanded in 2022. The refrigerator has space for up to ten cans and has two shelves in the door and a USB charging port in the door. With a DC adapter, the refrigerator can also be used on the go.
The design of the refrigerator was shown in a short video at the end of this year’s E3 conference by Microsoft – it certainly looked like an Xbox then and still does today.
The refrigerator was born from fans who compared them Xbox Series X Design to a refrigerator when it was announced in 2019. Xbox PR then ran with it, eventually promising that an actual Xbox mini fridge would hit the market.

You might even get a drink out of the fridge and then play Final Fantasy XIV on your Xbox console, like Naoki Yoshida has revealed that discussions about getting the MMO on console have been “positive” so far.
“We are still in talks with Microsoft and I feel that our conversations are positive,” said Yoshida.
