Sony stops the bizarre McDonald's PlayStation 5 DualSense controller at the last moment
According to reports, McDonald's Australia had intended to raffle off 50 limited-edition DualSense controllers with a rather strange design. As the image above shows, McDonald's covered the DualSense in images of a Big Mac and fries, along with yellow buttons, a partially red case and a prominently placed McDonald's logo.
Supposedly, McDonald's wanted to give away the controllers during 'Stream Week' to celebrate 50 years of McDonald's Australia, which should have started on Sunday. However, it seemed that McDonald's failed to discuss its custom DualSense with Sony.
In a statement, McDonald's has clarified that it cannot use the DualSense for advertising purposes relating to McDonald's Stream Week. Consequently, these controllers will no longer be raffled off, and McDonald's has postponed its Stream Week event.
Ultimately, McDonald's has created more of a collector's item than it perhaps had intended. We doubt that 50 of these controllers will ever reach fans either, increasing their scarcity. Hence, it may be a while before anyone gets their hands on a McDonald's DualSense controller.
