Is this actually seriously real? I still have some doubts but I am beginning to get hungry. KFC and Cooler Master have properly announced the KFConsole.

Going over the details of it, what they've actually created is a fully powered custom-built PC case with a built-in "Chicken Chamber". Yeah, really. It mentions how it uses "the systems natural heat and airflow system you can now focus on your gameplay and enjoy hot, crispy chicken between rounds". Completely ridiculous of course but I've no doubt if it really becomes available, people will absolutely buy it.

It makes use of the Cooler Master NC100 with an Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element, meaning it's no slouch and will actually pack quite a performance punch. The KFConsole will also come with a "first-of-its-kind" hot-swappable GPU slot with "Asus-powered graphics" (they're not saying what GPU model it comes with yet). Plenty of storage space too with two 1TB Seagate BarraCuda SSDs. You won't be running out of space quickly, and it will make the entire thing feel quite snappy.

Taking all that together, the concerning point (apart from crumbs getting everywhere) is the price. Nothing about it sounds particularly affordable. Even if they end up not selling it, you have to admit the marketing is hilarious and probably worth it alone - not that they need any extra marketing.

The real question is though: will it Linux? I'm sure it won't be long until someone installs it.

2020 continues being a very weird year.
