Currently, there are a few pre orders for the Microsoft Xbox mini fridge, and it looks like the one you’re interested in will be sold out in just a matter of seconds. If you’re looking to get one, it may be time to head to your local Target.
Xbox versus Skittles vs Microsoft xbox mini fridge
Earlier this year, Xbox beat Skittles in a Twitter competition. The competition required the winner to receive the most votes. If they did, then Microsoft would produce mini fridges inspired by Xbox Series X.
The contest was part of Microsoft’s 20th anniversary celebrations. The company announced that it would be holding a livestream event to celebrate its success. It would not feature new games or other updates. The focus of the stream was to showcase the accomplishments of the Xbox franchise.
The contest was held on the Twitter marketing account. Aside from the regular tweets, fans were asked to vote for their favorite overactive marketing Twitter accounts. The Xbox account ranked first.
After the contest ended, Xbox had a lot of questions about the mini fridge. Aaron Greenberg, the GM of Xbox Marketing, said that they were not trying to trick people. The campaign was a friendly Twitter brand competition. He said that they had not intended to make any mini fridges, but that they would put a quirky cooler in production if they won.
It’s a one-off
During E3 conference this year, Microsoft announced a mini-fridge based on its Xbox Series X game console. It’s not the first Xbox-related refrigerator, but it’s certainly the most powerful. It can hold up to ten 12-ounce cans of soda and up to twelve cans of beverage, plus it has a USB port for charging devices.
Xbox mini fridge pre order started on Tuesday morning, but it quickly sold out. People could buy the fridge at Target stores in the US and Canada. Some customers also bought it at local GAME stores.
The Xbox “Mini Fridge” is a 6-feet tall, 400-pound fridge that is shaped like an Xbox. It features LED lighting, two shelves for snacks, and a USB port for charging devices. Despite the design, it will not play the best Xbox games. It was designed to be a promotional item, but it’s also available in a miniature version.
In April, Xbox won a Twitter marketing contest for its “Mini Fridge” tweet. The company worked with a firm called Ukonic! to produce the merchandise. Its products include tie-in items for Marvel and Halo Infinite.
It’s sold out in 30 seconds
Until recently, the Xbox mini fridge was only available for pre-order at Target. It was created in partnership with a Las Vegas-based merchandise firm called Ukonic, and it resembles the console. It can hold up to 12 cans of drinks at a time, and it comes with a DC power adapter. It also has a USB port, so you can charge your phone or other devices while you’re gaming. It will ship in December.
Originally, the Xbox mini fridge was a viral joke, but after Microsoft won the “Brand Bracket” competition on Twitter, they decided to make the fridge a reality. Then, they started to receive requests for a smaller version. They ultimately manufactured a full-sized fridge in October of 2020, and sent it to Snoop Dogg. The door of the fridge opened up with a signature green glow, and when it opened, it made a very similar sound to the Xbox console.
It’s still unclear how the Xbox mini fridge has become such a hit, but some fans say they got one in their cart, while others reported getting them at local GAME stores. They’ve also been spotted on eBay. Although there are no official details about the resale market, these popular items often sell out quickly.
It’s available exclusively at Target
Initially released as a viral Internet joke, the Xbox Mini Fridge is now a real product. It’s a replica of the Xbox Series X game console that’s designed for gamers. It’s got LEDs, shelves for snacks and a USB port for charging devices. It’s priced at $99.99 and will ship in December.
The first wave of pre-orders sold out in about 30 minutes. The second wave of pre-orders was opened this week, and it also sold out quickly.
While it’s unclear whether or not the Xbox Mini Fridge will be on sale online, Target has confirmed that it will be available for purchase in store. It’s currently only available in the US, but Microsoft says it plans to expand the product’s availability across several other regions in 2022.
In April, Microsoft announced that it was teaming up with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to promote his ZOA energy drink. The marketing campaign included a limited-edition Xbox mini fridge, and Xbox said the mini fridges were only meant for promotional purposes.
