Move over PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced its KFConsole – a VR-ready, Intel-powered PC capable of 4K, Raytracing, gameplay up to 240fps, and a Chicken Chamber that will keep you chicken warm as you game. No, we aren’t kidding.This KFConsole was technically first unveiled a day after the PlayStation 5 reveal event, and although many thought it may just be a fun marketing joke by KFC, the KFConsole is very real.
The console wars are over.

The KFConsole’s case is built by Cooler Master, and the patented Chicken Chamber is perhaps its marquee feature.
“Never risk letting your chicken go cold again thanks to the patented Chicken Chamber,” The description reads. “Utilising the systems natural heat and airflow system you can now focus on your gameplay and enjoy hot, crispy chicken between rounds.”
The KFConsole is housed in a custom Cooler Master NC100 chassis and includes an Intel Nuc 9 and an Asus powered GPU that can be swapped out. It also has two Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSDs that have “PCIe NVMe speeds that are 6x faster.”
The release date and pricing of the KFConsole have yet to be given, but hopefully they won’t be as tough to find as the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
KFC has been working its way into the hearts and minds of many with not only its food and the KFConsole, but also with its official KFC dating sim and its Lifetime movie that stars Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders.
