Xbox Series X Mini Fridge is now available for pre-orders, starting today.
There indeed is quite a bit of truth in the saying “Be careful what you wish for”. Otherwise, how could, what initially started as a meme ended up becoming a real, life size product that you can soon be able to purchase, soon?! Not that we are complaining. The Xbox Series X Mini Fridges are now up for pre-order, as per a blog on the Xbox Wire!
Intended, like most memes, to get some laughs, the memes likened the appearance of the console to that of a mini fridge. This had then led to the one off creation of a full size fridge that even had a built in Xbox Series X console. This prompted Microsoft to look into the mini fridge spin-off.
Speaking of the mini fridges, Microsoft states, “What started as a viral meme became a life-size reality when we created the world’s first ever, fastest, and most powerful Xbox Series X Fridge, a 6-foot, 400 pound, 1:1 scale replica of our beloved console”. This is in reference to the viral meme that had started it all.
Further, in the blog, Microsoft says that “we didn’t stop there. After an all-out Twitter war and battle of the brands, Xbox came out on top with your votes, so we vowed to make your mini fridge memes a reality”. Microsoft had revealed the first look for the mini fridge during the Xbox E3 Showcase. The company says that it is now time to “give our fans what they’ve been waiting for just in time for the holidays. Introducing Xbox Series X Replica ‘Mini Fridge’”.
