Yes, it has come to this: writing a story about fridges. Not just any fridge, thankfully, but the gamer-friendly Xbox Series X Mini Fridge, which Microsoft has just announced will be available to pre order from October 19, and will be available for beverage insertion in time for the Christmas festivities.
Starting out as a meme when the newly-announced Xbox Series X was compared to a thermally insulated kitchen cabinet, Microsoft has (again) taken the joke to its logical conclusion and produced the acutely desirable Xbox Series X Mini Fridge. (Which is saying something coming from someone who has no personal interest in owning the machine on which the Xbox Mini Fridge is based).
