Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles are having problems with retailers keeping them in stock and scalpers snatching them up. It looks like Xbox thought it would be a good idea to go with Target for the sale of the Xbox Series X replica mini fridge. Big mistake. The mini fridge is suffering from scalpers too and fans are livid. The pre-order for the fridge launched on October 19 and sold out immediately. What the hell are gamers going to do with all this ridiculousness? Call out the company on Twitter, of course, and review-bomb the hell out of it on the Target website. It still doesn’t get them the products they want, though. The Xbox mini fridge is not limited edition, but this holiday season, many products are limited stock.
Fans Are Furious

Comingsoon.net covered that “more are on the way,” but Xbox will just be giving more to scalpers. There has to be a better way for products to get to consumers and at the price determined by the companies that make them. Who wants to spend $300 on a $99 mini fridge? Not many, I hope.
I do think the Xbox Series X replica mini fridge is a great idea and it looks really cool. Although, fans are going to have a hard time getting their hands on this mini fridge or a console for that matter. We’re still waiting for the PS5 and are in no rush to get it. I want these scalpers to financially suffer and I hope others feel the same way. So it doesn’t matter if you’re team Xbox or team PlayStation, let’s make these bastards pay!
