KFC 'Delays' Chicken Bucket Console to Match Cyberpunk 2077

The PlayStation 5 has a bit less competition. American fried chicken proprietor KFC had suggested it would launch its own video game system, the KFConsole, today, the same day the PS5 released. But on Twitter, KFC Gaming says the system has been delayed until December 11.

"The biggest challenge for us right now is creating a literal console that warms chicken," which requires us to prepare and test many elements of it (graphics connectivity, game accessibility, speed and most importantly the Chicken Chamber)... while working from home," KFC Gaming explains.

For those who haven't caught the joke already, KFC is making fun of Cyberpunk 2077's latest delay to December 10. The wording of the tweet is identical to the one that announced CD Projekt Red's latest delay. The wording on a red background is just like the yellow background that has been put on Cyberpunk delay notices, and some of the wording is exactly the same.

However, the statement suggests that the KFC Gaming team is in the UK, and that an 11/12 release date, which would be read as November 11 in the United States, should be read as 11th of December as it might be in much of Europe. "So literally nothing has changed, some of you assumed wrong," it says.

In a previous announcement, KFC had promised a console that makes chicken and also plays games at 4K and 120 fps. 

But don't take this too seriously. There is most assuredly not a console coming out that also produces chicken. You're better off upgrading your PC or getting an Xbox Series X or PS5. But it is funny.

    I'm waiting to find out what "4K and 120 fps" means for the KFConsole. Maybe 4K is properly pronounced fork (fourk)? FPS could be so many things. Friends, People, and Siblings. Fries Per Session. Fabulous Pieces of Sumptuousness. Still waiting to see how this all concludes (if it ever does).

    I wish that I had the chance to taste the original KFC before it was sold ...

    It tastes fantastic today , but I read that few years after Col.Sanders sold it , he went in and tried it and said that it tastes "Horrible" and regretted that he sold it .

    we today love this "horrible taste" lol

    Sanders would visit KFCs across the country saying :
    The gravy was horrible and that the extra crispy recipe was nothing more than “a damn fried doughball stuck on some chicken.”

    “There’s no way anyone can get me to swallow those potatoes,” he said after tasting some.

    “And this cole slaw. This cole slaw! They just won’t listen to me. It should he chopped, not shredded, and it should be made with Miracle Whip. Anything else turns gray. And there should be nothing in it but cabbage. No carrots!”

    Also

    My God, that gravy is horrible. They buy tap water for 15 to 20 cents a thousand gallons and then mix it with flour and starch and end up with pure wallpaper paste. And I know wallpaper paste, by God, because I’ve seen my mother make it.

    To the “wallpaper paste” they add some sludge and sell it for 65 or 75 cents a pint. There’s no nutrition in it and the ought not to be allowed to sell it.

    You're supposed to open up the biscuits, and fill them with the cole slaw, mashed potatoes and gravy to make a soggy sandwich.

    I accept payments in buckets of chicken. Most simple PC repairs I'll do for 2-3 buckets of KFC fried chicken.
