KFC Gaming officially announces the KFConsole

No, this is not an out-of-season April Fools' joke (according to the press release at least); KFC is really launching a gaming console in partnership with Cooler Master. Named the KFConsole and designed after the Bargain Bucket, it seems to be somewhat akin to the Steam Machine or a PC gaming tower at the very least.

The KFConsole campaign began on 11 June, went viral on Twitter and even earned a meme-worthy status on social media but apparently this new competitor in the gaming scene will indeed hit the market. Importantly, this machine is touted as featuring the world’s first built in chicken chamber to keep its contents hot, ready for consumption.

In addition to the patented Chicken Chamber, the KFConsole packs the following gaming specs and features:
  • Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element
  • Asus powered GPU
  • 2x Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSDs (said to have PCIe NVMe speeds that are 6× faster)
  • VR-ready
  • Ray tracing
  • Gameplay at up to 240fps for all games
  • 4K display support with up to 240Hz output

‘We all know the console war is vicious, but we’re very confident in the KFConsole as our flagship entry," said Mark Cheevers, PR & Social Media Lead at KFC UK & Ireland, in the press release. "This machine is capable of running games at top-level specs, all on top of keeping your meal warm for you to enjoy during your gaming experience... what’s not to like? If Sony or Microsoft want any tips on how to engineer a chicken chamber for their efforts next time, they’d be welcome to get in touch.’

Details regarding the cost of the KFConsole and its release window weren't made available as part of this announcement. But when (if?) it launches, would you consider buying this gaming device that doesn't want you to game on an empty stomach?

Burger King is better fastfood, but all we got is this lame sneak king games.

You haven’t been to the BK where I live.

I still remember when they tried their equivalent of the McMuffin, the only thing I could taste was ketchup with a hint of cheese.

... Now all the World needs is for this KFC Exhaust Chicken-Warmer to marry with Mountain Dew Water Cooling Softdrink-Thermos and a Cooler Master Fan Cotton-Candy-Maker under the ASUS ROG Carnivore line.

No, but really...this is an april fool's joke, right?

I mean...it's certainly innovative that they let the CPU run so hot it'll keep your dinner warm, but I can see this go wrong in so many ways that it's not even funny.

Well...presuming you're the owner, that is. As a critic, I have the noble obligation to point out a few flaws in the design that might result in a less-than optimal way. Or, simply put:


  • Gameplay at up to 240fps for all games
Can't wait to play I love you Colonel Sanders on that thing in 240 fps. Are there any other killer apps planned for launch date, or is that it? :creep:

My mind is blown, too. Once food is prepared, it can really only stay out at room temp or above, uneaten, for about 2 hours before bacteria starts to grow. If this is real and it really keeps "your meal warm for you to enjoy during your gaming experience," that's food poisoning just waiting to happen.

Nope. I've had too much internet. I'm out for today.
