The KFConsole, created in partnership with PC hardware manufacturer Cooler Master, promises to shake up the console war like a bag full of 11 herbs and spices with its built-in chicken chamber – a world’s first. It means the days of stomaching lukewarm poultry or suffering through a slightly cold piece of thigh are thankfully over. And it’s about time.
The console was first teased back in June, and caused more commotion on social media than a fox entering a chicken coop. Demand, strangely, was high for a console from the long-running fast food chain, and well… here it is.

The KFConsole is designed to keep your freshly purchased food piping as you frag foes online, something which the PS5 and Xbox Series X simply can’t do (and we wouldn’t advise trying, either). The custom built cooling system extracts system heat through the outside of the chicken chamber, so the hardware stays suitably cool and your chicken stays warm.
The Bargain-Bucket shaped machine is also capable of chewing through the latest games, too. While the specs are still firmly under wraps, the console promises to have a top-end Intel CPU inside, an ASUS hot swappable mini-GPU, and two NVMe 1TB SSD cards from Seagate.
Finger clickin’ good
It’s a weird feat of human engineering, then, and exactly the kind of silly nonsense we need during this trying year. Honestly, the KFConsole wouldn’t look out of place next to Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen systems – though the faint smell of chicken would certainly raise a few questions.
Suspiciously, the console doesn’t have a release date, price or any nailed on technical specifications to share yet, although it does have a website. Nevertheless, we’re crossing our fingers that the Colonel delivers a consumer-ready product in the near future, as we’re unsure whether a heated chicken chamber would pass health and safety regulations.
