The Xbox Series X Mini Refrigerator sold out in minutes, and Scalper is now available online for hundreds of dollars.
Microsoft released the first wave of pre-orders this morning. It sold out within 15 minutes, according to potential Twitter buyers. Refrigerators modeled after the Xbox Series X console officially sell for $ 99.99 / £ 89.99, but more than double the price of eBay.
A recent check on eBay showed multiple lists of mini fridges that cost well over $ 200. Multiple lists are already sold at the list price or accept the “best offer”. That is, people are paying for refrigerators at twice the cost of the MSRP price.
In the US, refrigerators are only sold at Target, but in the UK they are available from GAME. Microsoft says it plans to increase regional availability in 2022. Also note that the Xbox today called it the “first wave” of pre-orders.
The Xbox Series X Mini Refrigerator has been a meme since the console was announced in 2019, when the Internet soon realized that the Series X was similar to a refrigerator. Last year, Microsoft built a full-size Xbox Series X refrigerator. Earlier this year, Xbox announced that it would make it a reality for fans to bring the Series X Mini Refrigerator home.
