Your gaming den is about to get a lot cooler (pun very much intended) because pre-orders began today for the Xbox Series X mini-fridge. Stock levels already seem to be an issue in the UK and beyond, though.
Inspired by all the memes that compared the Xbox Series X design to that of a fridge, Microsoft has gone ahead and actually made a mini-fridge version of the console. You can't play games on it, but you can use it to cool some beers (or whatever you want).
If you're wondering where to buy the Xbox Series X mini-fridge, how much it costs, and when it will actually release, keep on reading for all the key details.

In the rest of Europe, Game Stop EU, Micromania and Toynk will be the retailers of choice for the Xbox mini-fridge. And in the USA and Canada, you will be able to buy your Xbox mini-fridge from Target. Again, though, we're finding it hard to find stock on any of those websites.

Seeing as this is a pre-order product, though, we'd be very surprised if you spotted an Xbox mini-fridge in a brick and mortar store. We'll keep our eye on stock levels and update this article if we see the Xbox mini-fridge pop up anywhere.
Sadly, it comes as no surprise that some people have already put their Xbox mini-fridges on eBay, where this novelty product is currently being sold at inflated prices. We'd recommend holding out for Microsoft to release more stock through its chosen retailers.

Here in the UK, the Xbox mini-fridge price will be £89.99 GBP. In Europe, you'll be looking at €99 Euros. And in the USA, the price will be $99.99 USD. Basically, it's just shy of a hundred bucks wherever you are in the world. If you're lucky enough to find one in stock, that is.
