Because 2020 wasn't weird enough already, fast-food chain KFC has now released a gaming console that can also warm up your dinner. The chain teased at the concept back in June with a trailer placed on Twitter.
Back then, no one believed the console would actually be released. After all, what does a fast-food chain restaurant have to do with gaming?
A real product
The console was built in cooperation with Cooler Master and it took their official joint statement for us to believe this product is for real. "Moving forward from our initial teaser campaign earlier this year, we're so pleased to finally give the fans exactly what they wanted; making the KFConsole a reality," said KFC PR boss Mark Cheevers.
"We all know the console war is vicious, but we're very confident in the KFConsole as our flagship entry. 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."
4K and 240FPS
The console is capable of 4K and 240FPS and KFC and Cooler Master say it uses its natural heat and airflow system to keep your chicken warm and crisp. The device features an Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element that keeps space down and provides powerful driving performance while two Seagate® BarraCuda® 1TB SSD allow you to boot games up in seconds. The console is also VR ready.
There is no word yet on the price range of this gaming console and the complete specs have yet to be revealed but we're still excited. The question we want most answered now is can we get it for Christmas?
