The KFC gaming console is an actual thing and it will be known as the KFConsole.

The announcement was made via a teaser video on the official @kfcgaming Twitter account on Wednesday (Dec 23). The tweet read “the console wars are over”, signalling the fast food chain’s first foray into the video gaming industry. 

The tweet has garnered over 1.4 million views thus far.

The KFConsole, produced in partnership with Cooler Master, Intel, Asus and Seagate, will allow gamers to enjoy their favourite titles in 4k resolution at 240 frames per second with Asus-powered graphics and an Intel Nuc 9 extreme compute element.

If you’re skeptical about it, Intel PR representative Mark Walton reassured gamers via Twitter that the console is very much real and not a hoax or PR stunt.

With two Seagate BarraCuda 1TB solid-state drives, users will also be able to load games in seconds and access data almost instantly. 

The KFConsole can run titles in virtual reality too. There will also be a built-in chicken chamber which keeps your fried chicken warm and crisp by utilising system-generated heat.  

While an official release date has yet to be announced, the official Twitter account for Fall Guys has stated that the popular video game will come to the KFConsole in 2022, so do keep your eyes peeled for that.
