Burger King, the fast-food restaurant chain, seems to be somewhat inexplicably teasing some kind of PlayStation reveal for later this week. A brief teaser video shared yesterday over on Burger King's Twitter sees the King himself eyeballing a rather large bag that makes a bizarre sound when he opens it. It ends with the date of Thursday, October 15th. Nothing would normally directly tie this to PlayStation... but the official PlayStation account has gotten in on the action as well.
Given that there are still plenty of questions about the PlayStation 5, PlayStation's upcoming next-gen console that's set to release next month, it seems fair to assume that this is related, but the fact that it's Burger King teasing this makes the whole thing suspect. Could it really be something as important as the UI or is it simply going to be something like Taco Bell's Xbox Series X giveaway, but for Burger King and the PlayStation 5? At this point, there is honestly no telling, but whatever the case, there isn't that much longer to wait anyway.
