KFConsole

A tweet from KFC Gaming reveals the "KFConsole" is a real thing. This was created as a collaboration with Cooler Master, and there are details on the machine on the Cooler Master Website. And while this is repeatedly referred to as a console, it is actually a small form factor gaming PC. This does offer a KFC twist, as the bucket-shaped PC includes a drawer in which to keep your chicken warm, bringing new meaning to the term thermal grease. Here's a feature list:

  • VR READY
    Get on your feet and enjoy the world of Virtual Reality while the smell of fresh chicken captures your senses.
  • RAY TRACING
    Rays of light individually simulated creating true to life shadows and reflections that will immerse you in selected games more than ever before.
  • 240FPS WITH UP TO 240HZ OUTPUT
    Enjoy smooth and fluid high-frame-rate gameplay at up to 240fps for ALL games, with support for 240Hz output on 4k displays
  • 4K-TV GAMING
    Enjoy your favourite games in Finger Clickin' Good 4K quality on supported devices.

Deep breaths guys, this isn't real.

Of course it's real. They may only make 3 or 10, but they'll make and sell them. As they did the cologne they made a few years back.

Why else involve CoolerMaster? You don't need them for a prototype PR stunt. You do need them to make something you sell in very limited quantities
It involves more than Cooler Master. Asus and Intel get honorable mention.

I think it looks better than the xbox series x/s and that air purifier ps5. Imagine if the bucket gets best new console? Nod

update: I've heard that the controllers will be the shape of a chicken wing

Really surprised that The Colonel and the KFC corporate lawyers haven't had a word with this company.

I mean, it could be real. They have their own PC game, after all.

To think.. they didn't build a console, they built a PC... That's it. Shocking.

Both traditional consoles (i.e. Playstation and Xbox) have been pre-built, small form factor x86-64 PCs since the previous generation launched in 2013. It's not a coincidence that the quantity and quality of console-to-PC ports have increased dramatically since then.

Well, cool, I guess, but this will be a disgusting mess in a week or two if somebody actually uses the warming drawer.

I pre-ordered the AMD version.
Not only will it run cooler it also has a built-in Margaritaville frozen margarita dispenser.

You're right. This was listed on the front page of Yahoo as, KFC just made a console more powerful than the PS5, rofl. If that doesn't grab attention, I don't know what will.

It's a nice looking pre-built PC (although I'm still partial to my H210i build) but can't imagine if this is actually real, and if someone would actually put fried chicken inside their PC. Bizarre.
