When the Xbox Series X was first revealed, the console made a name for itself as many compared its design to that of a fridge. Since that time, the Xbox fridge has become a popular meme, which resulted in Microsoft turning it into a real-life fridge.

Following the release of the Xbox Series X|S in November 2020, legendary rapper Snoop Dogg and social media influencer iJustine were sent huge real-life Xbox fridges.

Then as a result of a social media knockout tournament, plans were put into motion to release a miniature size of the Xbox Series X fridge so that Xbox fans can buy one for their homes.

While we don’t have a release date as to when the Xbox Series X fridge might be ready to buy at retail, General Manager of Xbox Games Marketing, Aaron Greenberg claimed that the fridges should be ready to buy “later this year.

Greenberg posted some photos on Twitter featuring his very own Xbox mini fridge care package, in collaboration with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new ZOA Energy Drink.

Social media influencer Colteastwood then replied to the tweet with an image of his snazzy home entertainment set-up with the words: “I have the perfect spot for this…

To which Greenberg then replied: “I love that setup, Colt. Xbox Mini Fridges for everyone later this year!

However, it’s not known at this time whether the Xbox Series X mini fridges will be made available outside of the US, but at least we know that they should be ready for retail by the end of this year.
