IT’S not often an item appears on the gaming market that you can store your beers inside.

While the Xbox Series X console itself is still in short supply across the world, this super-cool alternative can now be ordered ahead of its launch in December.
The Xbox Series X Mini Fridge started out of something of a joke: a frigi-dare, you might say.

We have a feeling that plenty of gamers will appreciate this keeping their drinks and snacks chilled for those long hours of gameplay.
Read on to find out everything you need to know about the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge, including where to price, size, design and launch date.
