    In the heels of Bud Light BL6 comes the KFC KFConsole.
    Built in cooperation by KFC Gaming and Cooler Master with Asus, Intel and Seagate.
    It's "based" around Cooler Master NC100, but can't really see anything from it left. Includes Nuc 9 Extreme, discrete Asus graphics card with RT support and Seagate SSDs.
    Also includes patented Chicken Chamber which makes sure your wings won't get cold while you play.

    Did anyone tell KFC the ps3 George Foreman grill photoshop was a joke? I expect now Pepsi will come out with their own drinks cooler/ console combo with Pepsiman as the mascot.

    That's the genius of Pepsiman. Family friendly mascot and horror film villain all in one. Actually I think that same applies to Fast Food mascots, Ronald McDonald, The King, Colonel Sanders etc.

    Sorry for double posting, my brain has been a bit scattered and I really didn't think this could be real.

    There was a supercomputer called Tsubame-KFC because most of its electronics were immersed in a special oil for better cooling. It was at the top of the "Green500" list for the most power efficient supercomputers in 2013.

    Thank god I'm not an early adopter. Now I can weight this in along with Series X and PS5 as my purchasing options, although, I don't know how much choosing is left too do now that only one of the machines has hardware accelerated fried chicken support.

    I see a fatal flaw with this machine. You actually have to get up from the couch/settee to grab your fried chicken. That's gonna be a deal-breaker for the target market.

    The likelihood of KFConsole owners having kids is pretty slim. As is the chance of them living past 35.

    Grim. It won't be easy to clean that chicken chamber, which means it won't be long until it smells like the seeping arsehole of a dying, elderly yak in a swamp, at high noon in the autumn, during the height of an Indian summer.

    Did you really think the average PC gamers' room smelled like Henry Cavill tough? :p

    I wouldn’t let my son touch my food with a ten foot pole. After 13 years of seeing his hygiene practices (fingers in nose and just about everywhere else), I would be crazy to let him handle my toasty thighs and legs with its 13 herbs and spices right out my console.

    LOL.

    I wouldn’t buy a KFConsole. I’m holding out until someone releases a refrigerated keg based model.
