When the Xbox Series X was revealed, its long black monolith form quickly became a meme by the virtue of it looking like a black refrigerator. Fast forward a few months later, with the imminent arrival of the hardware, Xbox has turned the meme into a reality. It has made a Xbox Series X Fridge… and a Xbox Series 1 cake. More on the cake in a bit.
In a reveal video posted late last month, the Xbox Series X Fridge was shown to come package in a giant version of the console’s packaging. And the hardware itself is the exact replica of the soon-to-be-available next-gen video game console, only very much larger.
The fridge, which comes complete with the “latest next-gen cooling technology and inspired by one of the Internet’s favorite console memes,” stands over 6 feet (1.82 meters) tall and weight in at 400 lbs (181 kg).
The resemblance with the console is uncanny. It features light up Xbox icon on the front and the disc drive slot that is actually a slot to open the fridge door. Upon opening the fridge door, it will trigger the new Xbox boot animation sound and reveal a glowing green interior.
Even the top wasn’t spared of the details; it has the same ventilation design as the console, complete with green glow. Xbox said additional features include “True 4K Eating, Cold Delivery, and Luxury Quiet Design.”
Apparently, only 3 units are made. One was delivered to rapper Snoop Dogg, along with the Xbox Series 1 cake, for the man’s birthday. One unit was sent for an unboxing and review by YouTube personality and tech junkie, iJustine, and the last unit is reserved as a sweepstake prize.
