Microsoft may not win the battle of the next-gen consoles when it’s all said and done, but I’ve got to give their marketing team credit for having a sense of humor at the very least.
When the Xbox Series X was revealed in all its blocky, 90-degree-angled, cuboidal glory, the memes weren’t far behind. One of the most notable and long-lasting memes for the upcoming next-gen system (releasing on November 10th) compared the new rig (which is basically a PC, c’mon) to a fridge. Microsoft took that meme in stride and actually went ahead and produced a few IRL fridges made to the similar specs of the Xbox Series X. And one of those fridges could be yours!

Microsoft’s been on the meme-appreciation circuit for most of 2020, at least since March:

But lately, they’ve stepped their meme game up, having sent a big ol’ fridge to Snoop Dogg and iJustine:
Now, if Microsoft truly wants to embrace the meme here, they’ll offer up a retro boombox that looks like the upcoming Xbox Series S. Fingers crossed!
