The official Twitter account of Xbox has posted a video, depicting how the Xbox Series X fridge looks like. There is indeed, a lot of resemblance between the Xbox Series X fridge and the Xbox Series X console. The Xbox Series X fridge consists of a thin indentation at the location where a disc drive is normally inserted with an Xbox Series X console. It protrudes towards the upper side.
Apart from all of this, a glowing Xbox logo sits on the upper left portion of the appliance, giving it an elegant look, and also portraying the fact that this belongs to the Xbox brand.
The video portrays the message stating that the appliance would provide “The Next Generation Experience.” It also states that the Xbox Series X fridge would be “More Immersive Than Ever” and it would be “Utilizing The Latest In Cooling Technology.”

It is not the very first time that a kitchen appliance has been developed in connection with the gaming world. Sometime in 2015, an R2D2 mini-sized fridge was made after taking inspiration from the Star Wars movie series. Then, the Skyrim: Very Special Edition game can be played by taking the help of Alexa-supported devices. And finally, there were reports which stated that the Doom Eternal game could play atop the screen of a Samsung smart fridge.
