If you want to buy the most powerful game console possible, you might be looking for a long time: both Sony's Playstation 5 and Microsoft's Xbox Series X are sold out almost everywhere.

The warehouses and shelves are empty, numerous fake shops that will never deliver lurk for potential victims online.

Currently only technically weaker devices such as the Xbox Series S or various variants of Nintendo's Switch console are currently available for purchase in stores.

The lack of supplies at its top console does not stop Microsoft from launching a new product that alludes to the Xbox Series X: a small refrigerator with space for twelve beverage cans and two door racks.

The device will cost 99 euros, in Germany it can be pre-ordered from the game retailer GameStop from October 19.

The so-called "Mini Fridge" will then be delivered in December.

Microsoft is not really trying to stir up the refrigerator market with its product.

Rather, the "Mini Fridge" is to be understood as a fan service: When the design of the Xbox Series X was unveiled in mid-2020, the new console had optically reminded many gamers of a refrigerator - countless network jokes were created on the basis of this impression.

Microsoft now writes in its announcement that its small refrigerator is shared with Ukonic!

has been developed.

A USB port for charging devices is built into the front of the device.

In addition, a DC adapter is included in the scope of delivery, "so that the mini fridge also works on the go".

Because Microsoft is presenting its product in detail only a few weeks before the market launch, one can assume that it will actually be available in December, at least for pre-orderers.

Fundamentally, there is a risk of further delivery bottlenecks in the technology sector in autumn and the Christmas business.

According to information from the industry, they could affect individual smartphones, tablets and printers, but also dishwashers and refrigerators.
