Microsoft shocked the world at E3 2021, after ending its conference with a blockbuster announcement of a… fridge.

Described as the world’s most powerful mini-fridge, the Xbox Series X-shaped cooler will be available later this year.

The perfect present for gaming fans, the mini-fridge is modelled after the Xbox Series X console, which was jokingly compared to a fridge when it was first revealed.

“Introducing, for the first time in Xbox history, a new system that leaves others cold,” reads the official description. “Yes, this is really happening.”

It’s unclear exactly when the world’s most powerful mini-fridge will launch, just that it will be available this holiday season.

Microsoft is also yet to confirm how many units will enter production, so you might want to act fast in order to secure your very own Xbox-style fridge.

To coincide with the announcement of the Xbox Series X mini-fridge, Express Online was sent a boatload of different energy drinks to see which ones are best.

From Command and Carabao, to 3D, Bang and Sneak, these are the energy drinks (ranked in order of taste) to look out for when you get your brand new mini-fridge.
