If you were planning to participate in a contest to get one of the most extravagant and revolutionary custom controllers for PS5 of the moment, finally it will not be possible. McDonald’s Australia has not had the approval of Sony PlayStation to give away a few Dualsense controllers with motifs from the famous fast food brand.
Last week McDonald’s Australia, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, included a full week of special broadcasts from different influencers in the country, and also even a gift in the form of a dualsense with motifs from the famous hamburger chain.
After the announcement, there have been many players who have wanted to sink their teeth into command, with the McDonalds brand logo included, also with drawn fries and hamburgers. But it appears that McDonald’s had not asked Sony for permission, and they have had to withdraw this award.
The event was intended to include several of Australia’s most popular streamers such as Muselk, Jacko G, Crayator and Kiki, but right now there is not even a new celebration date, in an event that is postponed until further notice.
As discussed in a statement sent to press-start.com.au “McDonalds Australia has confirmed that the awards have changed due to lack of authorization from Sony. Sony PlayStation has not authorized the use of the controller in promotional materials related to the proposed Stream Week event and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. McDonalds streaming week has been postponed and Sony PlayStation controllers will not be included in the draw”.
If the event is finally held, it will not include this juicy prize in the form of a personalized command, but subscriptions to different channels and hoodies will be given away.
Sony, so far, is being really strict about customizing both the PS5 case and the dualsense. In any case, Sony has started to market dualsense controllers in red and black, with considerable success, and they may have more ideas in the future to launch this type of custom controllers.
Be that as it may, at the moment you are not going to be able to do with this personalized McDonalds dualsense controller, but surely you can eat a hamburger while holding your PS5 controller.
