Late last year, KFC Gaming joined forced with Cooler Master to launch the KFConsole.

The announcement was met with a healthy dose of skeptism and quickly went viral. Since the launch, KFC Gaming has won numerous awards for its initial teaser campaign.

The machine is designed around the familiar bucket shape. The console contains the world’s first built in chicken warmer. It is designed to keep food hot and ready for consumption during intense gaming sessions.

KFConsole Features:

  • a unique, custom built internal cooling system to extract system heat through around the outside of the chicken chamber, ensuring that the hardware is kept at a regular core temperature while simultaneously delivering a piping-hot meal.
  • Custom Cooler Master NC100 chassis
  • Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Computer Elemenet
  • Asus powered graphics
  • Two Seagate BarraCuda 1TB SSD
  • VR ready and ray tracing
  • 240FPS with up to 240Hz output on 4k displays
  • 4K-TV gaming

‘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 Mark Cheevers, PR and Social Media Lead at KFC UK and Ireland.

‘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.’

The KFConsole is now a reality, thanks to a key partnership with Cool Master, a global hardware manufacturer. The development process included custom built casing, creating the unique cooling system and integrating the signature chicken chamber.

‘When we were approached by KFC Gaming to make the KFConsole, we jumped at the chance to get involved and enter the console war’ said Stephen James, Global PR and Influencer Manager at Cooler Master. ‘The KFConsole has been custom built with the gamer at the front of mind. The last thing we want is anyone to go hungry while playing!’

But who is going to put greasy chicken fingers on their sweet gaming keyboard and mouse? What do you eat while gaming that you need to keep warm?

The Colonel also believed in feeding promise, wherever it’s found.
