The newest generation of gaming consoles is here, but Kentucky Fried Chicken may have plans for a next-gen gaming console of their very own.
Sony and Microsoft have already ushered in the newest generation of console gaming, but it seems a surprising name may be crashing the next-gen party. KFC is known the world over for their tasty fried chicken and Colonel Sanders’ secret herbs and spices, but it seems the fast food chain is ready to make the jump into the gaming world with the KFConsole. KFC Gaming started in 2018 as a funny marketing ploy, but has since grown into an actual live streaming page. It’s pretty run of the mill, but they seem to be growing a sizable following. While their Twitch page has a modest 1.5K followers, KFC Gaming’s Youtube account is nearly up to 25K subscribers, and their Twitter page is nearing 175K followers. Streaming is just the start for KFC Gaming, as the Colonel seems to have bigger plans in store.

Back in June, KFC surprised the video gaming world by announcing their own gaming console, the KFConsole. The bucket-shaped system is said to run in 4K at 120 FPS and feature cross platform compatibility. Not only that, but the Kentucky Fried Console is expected to be the first video game console to ever feature a chamber for cooking chicken. Fans can now live out the dream of being able to cook a chicken while playing video games all with one machine. The KFConsole has the potential to revolutionize gaming, but fans will have to keep waiting a bit longer for its release.
The KFConsole was originally suppose to be released on November 11th, but delays have pushed back KFC’s console’s release date a full month to December 11th. This news came as a major disappointment to fans, but KFC promised the delays are for the best. It’s not easy developing a gaming console that’s capable of warming chicken, so they extra development time may be crucial. The delay is frustrating, especially because the console has already fallen behind the competition of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but it should hit shelves just in time for the Holiday season… if it’s even a real thing that is.
The KFConsole Is Just A Joke… Probably
As cool as it would be to have a video game console that is cross-platform compatible, runs in 4K at 120 FPS, and can cook chicken, it seems it’ll remain just a pipe dream. The KFConsole is another in a long line of internet jokes put together by KFC Gaming. It was KFC’s way of piggybacking off the upcoming generation of consoles to help create some buzz for themselves. The whole thing was a tongue-in-cheek publicity stunt, similar to when they launched the I Love You Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator on Steam. Even KFC’s “decision” to delay the release of the KFConsole was a joke poking fun at Cyberpunk 2077’s delays
Even though the KFConsoles is just a joke, it’ll be interesting to see what KFC has in store once December 11th roles around. The idea of these consoles actually being sold sounds ridiculous, but perhaps KFC will hold a contest and reward one lucky gamer with a KFConsole of their very own. It definitely seems like a stretch, but crazier things have happened. KFC does have their own dating simulator after all. Considering KFC Gaming’s track record, it’s anyone’s guess as to what they may do next. The dream of cooking chicken with a video game console may be dead, but hopefully KFC Gaming has something good up their sleeve for when the KFConsole is suppose to drop early next month.
