The KFConsole Review – In a Nutshell
The ‘Bargain Bucket-shaped’ machine features the world’s first built-in “Chicken Chamber.” Thanks to the unique custom-built cooling system that will keep the Console hardware at average temperature while using the components’ heat to keep the chicken chamber warm during intense gaming sessions.

The KFConsole: Release & Pricing
Now that the console is finally announced, everyone is excited to get their hands on the beast of hardware with it’s “finger-licking” twist. However, there is no official launch date available either from KFC Gaming or Cooler Master. At this moment, it is uncertain whether it will be an exclusive launch or a retail launch.
The same goes for the pricing of the console. Neither KFC Gaming nor Cooler Master has revealed how much the console will be available online.
The high-end specs come with its unique twist, the console can retail for about $2000, and that’s not counting the GPU(unspecified) and any other additional costs KFC Gaming or Cooler Master decides to add on. We can be pretty confident this console will not be cheap, and given all the information available, it will be ahead of both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X in terms of performance and keeping you “eating and gaming” on the go.
Thoughts & Reactions:
The console’s initial hype is enormous, and the buzz around social media is enormous, and the console is not yet launched. A large part of the community is excited to try out this unique product as soon as possible, and for the other part, this is already a meme. This unique approach may seem a bit like an early April Fool joke.
People are excited, but some are skeptical as well. There’s no question in performance, given the spec sheet is top of the line. KFC’s unique approach is mixed. Although there’s no need to worry, as KFC Gaming and Cooler Master mentioned, the heating chamber got a solid plastic tray to protect the crumbs from inside the machinery. However, the majority of the reactions suggest KFC is onto something here. So, however ridiculous and far fetched it might appear with its unique take on the Gaming Community, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the KFC Console is an instant hit.
