They’re two of the most eagerly anticipated gaming consoles of the year, but it seems that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X could have a new rival to contend with.
KFC has announced that it is launching its own gaming console, dubbed the KFConsole.
The food chain announced the console on its new KFC Gaming Twitter account, writing: “The future of gaming is here. Introducing the KFConsole. #PowerYourHunger.”
KFC promises that the console will do 4K at 120 FPS, but has remained tight-lipped about the other key specifications.
However, KFC also teased that the console comes with a ‘chicken chamber’ and cross-platform compatibility.
While this is likely a hilarious marketing stunt, many eager fans replied to express their delight at KFC’s apparent move into the gaming sector.
One user joked: “Dayummmm, how much storage though? I guess 2ChickenBytes.”
Another added: “I officially want all consoles to now come with a chamber of chicken.”
Meanwhile, Xbox even seems to see the funny side of the news, replying: “Can you lay it sideways?”
KFC’s teaser video ended with the date 11.12.2020, so we’ll probably have to wait until November to find out more.
The news comes just days after PlayStation finally unveiled its PlayStation 5 console, as well as the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.
Sid Shuman, Senior Director of SIE Content Communications said: “At PS5’s launch, we will offer two options: a PlayStation5 console with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive and a PlayStation5 Digital Edition without a disc drive.
“The PS5 gameplay experience will be the same, so the choice is all yours.
“While there are some slight differences in the look of each model, for the overall design, we wanted to deliver a console that’s bold, stunning, and unlike any previous generation of PlayStation.”
Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will go on sale this Christmas.
