Xbox Mini Fridges on Black Friday

Fans and players in the US witnessed quite a unique occurrence. The seller, Target, has initiated the ability to pre-order as well and seems to have quite a lot of units available.

This fan-favorite unit was created in collaboration with the company Ukonic. The mini-fridge has the ability to hold up to 12 cans of any drink. The device also has a USB port that can charge hand-held devices. The mini-fridge also has a DC power adapter to charge devices on the go.

The iconic device will be available for purchase via Target through the Target.com domain. For the US and Canada, it is available on Target.com. For France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, and Poland, it can be brought from Micromania and Toynk via Amazon.

Microsoft expressed its commitment to increasing the accessibility of the mini-fridge as well. They said they want to make the unit available to as many regions as possible.

While the product is available to purchase on e-commerce platforms, players and fans should not expect to receive their piece before 2022.

Adding salt to the wound, disheartened gamers have found their prized console on eBay. The catch, however, is that they are listed for at least double and triple their original price.

What is interesting to note is that the concept of this mini-fridge started off as a complete meme. Skittles and Xbox had engaged in an online brand war on Twitter. And now we’re here.

Here’s hoping all those who want to get their hands on the item will be able to do so.
