Australia, the wait is over! Xbox mini fridge preorder is available now!
This 10L mini fridge can hold up to 12 small cans or 10 375mL cans and comes with small snack shelves on the door. Cooling items to 20 degrees Celcius below the ambient tempurate and coming with a USB charging port on the front the Xbox mini fridge is a must for any Xbox fan. The top of the fridge and Xbox logo even light up just like a real Xbox Series X would do!
With a release date of 31st August 2022, you better get your Xbox mini fridge preorder in now otherwise you might have as much chance of getting one as an actually Xbox Series X.
Edit 12th April 2:24pm AWST: The JB Hifi website lists the release date as the 31st August but the author has since seen a Twitter post from EB Games that says it will be released on the 4th August. Sadly EB Games has removed the Xbox mini fridge from their website indicating they have pre-sold out. JB Hifi are still allowing preorders.
Edit 12th April 3:55pm AWST: The Xbox mini fridge has now disappeared off the JB Hifi website. If we hear anything further we’ll post it to our socials!
The idea of an Xbox fridge was originally a meme. After the reveal of the Xbox Series X fans joked that it looked like a fridge. Microsoft leaned into that meme and actually built a life size Xbox Series X fridge and gave it to Snoop Dogg and one lucky fan. Then in October last year Microsoft announced it would be releasing an Xbox mini fridge after bribing fans to vote for them in a battle of the brands. US preorders went on sale 19th October 2021 but us Aussies were made to wait.
Until today! Various retailers such as EB Games and JB Hifi have preorders available but be quick! You never know when they’re going to sell out. Or pre-sell out. Pre-order sell out? Either way, hurry and get your Xbox mini fridge preorder in now before they’re gone!
At AU$220.00 (plus shipping and handling), you can get your Xbox mini fridge preorder for a reasonable price. I have a slightly smaller mini fridge that was around the AU$160.00 mark when I bought it about five years ago so that price for a slightly larger, Xbox branded one sounds fair. It currently sits in my office but will be making room come the end of August. Not that I’m counting the days or anything.
