Xbox or PS5? Nah, Get KFC's Finger-Licking KFConsole Instead

(Image credit: KFC)

At some point in time, KFC started the KFC Gaming channel on twitter and Instagram, supposedly "for the memes." Now, KFC claims it is ending the console wars with.... drumroll please... the KFConsole.

It's just a teaser for now, but KFC promises that it console will do 4K at 120 FPS. KFC doesn't share other specs, but the fast-food chain also teased that it comes with a chicken chamber and cross-platform compatibility, with the former calling out that this isn't a serious attempt at a new gaming platform.

Can we really expect KFC to make a console? Probably not, but this is an absolutely brilliant marketing strategy, leveraging the Xbox and PS5 hype to build what is essentially a glorified air fryer. That's what this is, right? And the cross-platform compatibility, that means it'll also do fries, correct?

Either way, KFC will surely sell bucketloads.

The teaser wrapped up with the date 11.12.2020, so we'll find out more in November. Until then, you'll see me at the drive-thru.

    And there it is folks... the nail in the coffin that finally got me to remove Tom's Hardware from my bookmarks... Been visiting multiple times a day for 10+ years but I can't stand the biased clickbait titles and egregiously stupid advertising they've seemed to embrace. Wish this weren't the case but enough is enough, see ya...

    Yeah, it seems pretty inane, and you have to love the author for referring to it as absolutely brilliant marketing. Where do they get people like this from? The commercial/ad was silly at best, stupid and hackneyed at worst. Brilliant? Good grief. There was nothing even remotely creative or interesting about it. Maybe the follow up stuff will have some wit to it, but nothing in this did.

    Great advert. Made me smile. The two people above are obviously far too serious.

    Right, because the title of this article was misleading? Seriously, that's what you're claiming? You genuinely thought there was going to be a serious hardware discussion when you read the headline: Xbox or PS5? Nah, Get KFC's Finger-Licking KFConsole Instead
    Not buying it.

    They can stick a raspberry pi literally into one of their empty buckets they sell chicken in, bundle the KFC dating game with it and they will not have lied in anything they claim, it would be capable of 4k 120fps cross platform and it would be a console.

    It is stupid clickbait advertising.

    And yet, they clicked on it anyway, and posted to this thread. If they didn't want ridiculous, why did they click on something that was so obviously a thing they hate? There's no magic powers at work here - they WANTED to click it.

    Reminds me of the TV show "Community" episode: Kentucky Fried Chicken 11 Herbs and Space Experience
