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?

It is literally superior to a switch. The only thing the switches heating element does is warp it's cheap plastic shell! :gun:

No warp here and my Switch has been docked since day of purchase and never used in handheld mode. Same as plenty of others I know in person. No warp. An incredibly small handful of people out of how many Switches were sold complained about warp. Nothing to see here. ;)

if this is just a pc, then that means that ratatouille has been ported to the gba, gamecube, pc, DS, mac, ps2, psp, wii, xbox, xbox 360, ps3, and now the KFConsole.

But why though?
ahem
why not?
although i can see the processor or motherboard/ important things inside of the computer being burned by someone who stuck chicken in it.

I kinda want it to be real at least for the memes, but I see it somekind impossible with that size and those specs...
It could be bigger than it looks? (yeah looking back on this it's seems to be fake, but i want it to be real SO BAD)
