KFC teasing a new gaming console
KFC via its KFC Gaming Twitter handle revealed a new video showcasing a gaming console from the company, called KFConsole. The video seems to be a dig at the recently showcased Sony PlayStation 5 console. In the video, the company claims that the device will support for “real 4k” and “120 FPS”. It also states that the device will come with a built-in “chicken chamber”. The video clearly is a parody, with what seems to be a follow-up joke coming on November 12. There is still hope that KFC could launch a console, as it has launched a number of games earlier like the KFC VR Training Game for the Oculus Rift S.
The future of gaming is here.
