    Well, it is 2020. Still just over a week for Subway sneakers and Burger King's SUV.

    This isn't an elaborate April Fool's prank? Wow.

    This is the bi-product of a severely out-of-touch marketing department that thinks they're doing something cool...

    Having a console that uses its heat output to keep your chicken warm in a special compartment is a level of nerdyness I can totally get behind.

    The only question is; How has nobody thought of it sooner? :lol:

    So how many more frames per second will all that congealed fat and grease in the tray add? I mean, it's KFC so it's more that than actual chicken.

    I'd be shocked if this is less than $1,000

    But is it better than Popeye's spicy chicken sandwich?

    If it comes with the 24 piece legs and thighs for 39.99 and your choice of 2 sides and 2 biscuits.


    P.s They got us talking about chicken! Those SOBs at marketing succeeded! They win!

    I’m sorry, what!?

    Why is this dumb marketing gimmick actually packing high end components?

    When I woke up today, KFC making a gaming PC with actual firepower wasn’t something I thought I would be reading.

    There’s no way it will be. I’ve read it’s utilizing Intel Nuc 9.

    Intel sells them as barebone kits, which start at just under $1,000 for a model with a Core i5 processor and stretch to over $1,600 with a Core i9 chip. Those kits do not include memory, storage, operating systems, or graphics cards.

    I looked into building a mini modular gaming PC in the past for fun, it’s still cost prohibitive and a pain in the ass to work on.

    Well yes papa. Now I've seen it all. A gaming console that can also warm up your meals at the same time. Take win.
    I'm reading it and had to pinch myself. That being said, if true I must say it has some impressive specs blowing...or should I say frying Xbox and PS5 out of the ballpark. It's got my attention.

    At 0:04 in the trailer, there is a live-action scene of the two classic Ford Mustangs racing with each other and I also wonder what game will it be?



    Possibility KFC's answer to Xbox's Forza Horizon or PlayStation's DriveClub.

    Kentucky Fried Console - this is the best thing I have read this month! :tup:

    Seriously sounds like an impressive piece of kit, not sure I would ever acquire one if it came to the market but certainly should keep Microsoft and Sony on their toes. :cheers:
