Despite many thinking it was a joke, fast-food chain (KFC) has launched a new gaming console allowing users to play video games while keeping precooked chicken warm with its built-in "chicken chamber."

KFC announced on Tuesday that the Intel-powered KFConsole is a partnership between the company and hardware manufacturer Cooler Master.

"The Bargain Bucket-shaped machine features the world's first built in chicken chamber, which is kitted out to keep its contents hot, ready for consumption during intense gaming sessions," the fast-food chain added.

According to Cooler Master, the KFConsole offers smooth gameplay at 240 frames per second frame rate up to 240 Hz, with highlights of ray tracing and supports all games, including virtual reality, and 4K-TV gaming. 

KFC has released a video of the gaming console in Twitter last June,  a day after Sony launched the Play Station 5, which others think was a joke. 

Besides being known as "The house that fried chicken built," KFC has recently took part in the gaming industry after releasing a free video game in 2019, "I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator."
