Xbox has won Twitter’s first-ever #BestOfTweet Brand Bracket Championship and, after a promise from Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg, will be making Xbox Series X Mini Fridges for the public.Xbox was in a tough fight with Skittles in this championship battle, and won by only 1% after 341,731 votes. When it was coming down to the wire, Greenberg tried to rally Xbox fans by saying the company would make real Xbox Series X Mini Fridges if Xbox won.
This is another chapter in the Xbox Series X Fridge saga that began when Microsoft, perhaps in a nod to those like Niko Partners’ Daniel Ahmad and an example of why it won this contest, compared the size of its next-gen console to a refrigerator.

Following the victory, Greenberg thanked everyone for voting and shared that the “first [Xbox Series X Mini Fridge] will be filled with games & headed to our friends @Skittles of course!”
Skittles tried to rally its fans in a similar fashion, by promising to bring back lime skittles, but it appears the allure of a fridge shaped like an Xbox won out.
“Congratulations to @Xbox on the win,” Skittles wrote on Twitter. “Definitely a tough one, but a HUGE thanks to all of our friends, family, fans and #mcyt for rallying for SKITTLES. We love you all! (but what are we going to do with all these non-refundable limes we ordered? If only we had a fridge).”
Luckily, for Skittles and Xbox fans, there will be a chance to own your very own Xbox Series X Mini Fridge in the future.
