KFC Trolls The New PS5 And Xbox Series X By Unveiling Its New 'Games Console'
| Last updated
There have been some huge announcements lately in the world of gaming. Sony has launched the PlayStation 5 and Microsoft has dropped the new Xbox Series X. But a third, more unlikely, contender has arrived on the scene, in the form of KFC's latest announcement:
The video was shared from the KFC Gaming Twitter account. If you're not familiar with it, it's a real account from the fast food brand that shares gaming content regularly.
Shamelessly linking gamers with fried chicken and fast food - an unfair stereotype, some would argue - the account has a huge 121k followers, and the console release perfectly trolls the hype around the latest big launches.
So... which is it going to be? :eyes: pic.twitter.com/zvsItQo2ZZ

The video is in true console-release style, with a slick promo film and bold angles. It even has a 'chicken chamber' so that gaming types can keep their Bargain Bucket nice and warm.
The KFConsole features red accents, a power button and a disc drive, all in the shape of a big bucket of chicken.
And the team at KFC aren't the only ones to take the p*** out of recent gaming news.
When Sony unveiled the design of the eagerly-anticipated next-gen console, the Internet set about doing its thing.
The results range from pretty savage to hilarious with people comparing it to a number of different things - including a duck's bill.
One person wrote: "ps5 look like if you googled 'future space gaming console cool design' in 2009." Got to give it to him.
It was shrouded in secrecy for months but the grand reveal finally came at the end of Sony's Future Of Gaming event.
Sony also confirmed a handful of features for the new console - many of which we already knew about.
It packs a 4K UHD Blu-Ray drive, custom AMD GPU, and very impressive SSD that's said to massively reduce loading times. It also comes with an impressive 10.28 Teraflops of GPU power, which is just shy of the Xbox Series X's 12 Teraflops.
What we didn't know before was that the PlayStation 5 will come in both disc and digital-only models. This isn't much a surprise, given that we seem to be heading towards a disc-less future, but it's cool that Sony gave us the option here.
Unfortunately, we still don't have an exact release date, with the promo video saying a vague 'Holiday 2020' - so probably just in time for Christmas.
