(Pocket-lint) - Xbox has opened up pre-orders for its Mini Fridge styled around the Xbox Series X.

Starting as a meme after the Xbox Series X was first unveiled, the Xbox Mini Fridge idea got such attention that the company decided to manufacture it. It will be available globally from December - just in time for the holiday season.

It is avaible in the US via Target, priced at $99.99. Customers in Canada will also be able to buy it from Target.com.

Those in the UK can get it from Game for £89.99 (although we've just seen the initial wave of stock might be sold out), while Game Stop EU will sell it for €99 in France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, and Poland.

Xbox will expand availability throughout 2022.

Developed in partnership with Ukonic, the fridge can hold up to 12 cans of "your favourite beverage". There are two shelves in the door and a USB port on the front to use to charge external devices.

It comes with a DC power adapter and, we imagine, will be fan-based so great for cooling drinks, etc, but not to keep fresh produce in (such as meat and milk).

That's essentially par for the course for a mini fridge. Few look as cool as this though. And yes, that pun was entirely intended.
