In my many years of being around gamers, I have noticed one thing—gamers don’t eat enough, or they tend to eat at random times and struggle to eat consistently. If not constantly reminded, a gamer could literally go the whole day without having a meal, and it is easy to understand why. After all, who has the time to think about eating when you are in the middle of an intense five hour Call of Duty battle? Likewise, are you really in the mood for a meal if you are frustrated with the game and things aren’t going your way? The answer to that is probably a resounding no, and we totally get it. That said, it is still essential for gamers to take care of themselves. You need a certain amount of strength and mental fortitude to be able to have success with whatever game you are playing, and you can’t do that if you lack energy. KFC is looking to fix that problem with the KFConsole.
Everything We Know So Far About the KFConsole
There's a new console in town.
If you are reading this article, it is safe to say that you have more than likely had KFC at least once in your life, and you are probably aware of how the brand has become a go-to meal for various sporting events (including esports). Chicken has always been one of those easy, long-lasting foods that you can nibble at throughout the course of the day, which is exactly why KFC decided to take things a step further with their KFConsole—a unique two-in-one gaming system that allows you the ability to plays games while keeping your chicken warm.
Since the KFConsole is the first of its kind, you may have some questions about exactly how this works, so we are here to help you. While not many details have been released yet, we know that the console is a gaming system with a built-in chicken chamber. Additional features include Asus-powered graphics, insane speed, VR gaming capabilities, 240fps gaming at 4K resolution for certain video games, and much more. At the moment, we still don’t know have an exact release date or any information on the price and general availability. We also aren’t clear on which specific games will be made available for the console, but we assume that information will be released soon.
So as a gamer (or even somebody just interested in purchasing the device), you may still have a few questions about how this product works and why the KFConsole could be beneficial to you. While you can’t actually cook chicken in the chamber of the system, you can keep your chicken nice and warm while you play. So whether it’s chicken that you personally made or you picked up/ordered from KFC, you won’t have to worry about it getting cold. Not to say that cold chicken isn’t bad, but nothing quite beats a nice, hot piece of fried chicken.
The KFConsole is also very convenient in the sense that you don’t have to actually leave the room to get your chicken—you could grab a couple of pieces without ever taking your eyes off the game. Plus, chicken is a relatively easy meal to eat. You don’t have to use any silverware, and if you are a skilled enough gamer (which most of you are), you can eat your chicken one-handed.
As we inch closer to the release date, we can expect a fury of more details. The idea of a chicken warming game system might be a unique concept to some, but we may not ever see anything quite like this again. Gamers can definitely make good use of it, which could potentially be a collectors’ item down the road if you are into that scene.
Whatever the case, we will keep you posted on all the latest announcements regarding the KFConsole.
