Microsoft has launched a second variant of its Xbox Series X mini-fridge, which comes in a smaller 4.5-litre form factor to hold eight cans of soft drinks, as well as snacks in a compartment in the door.
Xbox’s VP of Games Marketing at Microsoft, Aaron Greenberg, has announced on Twitter that the “Mini-Me” Xbox Series X mini-fridge is now available in the US for $79 via Walmart. A global rollout will come at a later date. Even though you can’t play all of the upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles on it, not having to get out of your chair for a cold drink is a worthy upgrade to any gaming setup.
A 4.5-litre Xbox Series X mini-fridge has been announced
After “the team received lots of asks to make a smaller version of the same product at an even lower price,” Microsoft has released this cool machine just in time for the holidays. This latest variant offers you 4.5-litres of space for eight cans of drink, so much smaller than the original 10-litre version that was released last year. It measures 7.3″ (18.5cm) in width and depth and 14.3″ (38.3cm) in height and features a snack shelf on the inside of the door. Additionally, the mini-fridge has a USB port for charging your other devices. We hope a third party will design an LED base for it, though, much like the Venom colour-changing LED stand for Xbox series X because RGB rules.
It sounds like you can only purchase this smaller mini-fridge at Walmart in the US at the moment — it’s usually $79 but is currently on sale for $55, so now could be a great time to get it if you’re looking to pick it up as a gift for the holidays. Greenberg has said a global rollout is coming, so hopefully, it’ll be available to the rest of us later this year.
