Sony bans custom controllers from McDonalds

Actually, those responsible at McDonalds wanted to raffle a limited number of modified PS5 controllers for the 50th anniversary. Because the copies have not been officially approved, they have to be dispensed with.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of McDonalds in Australia, the people in charge of the fast food chain manufactured modified DualSense controllers. These should actually be raffled to a total of 50 viewers of several Twitch streams.

However, nothing will come of this: McDonalds told the Australian gaming site Press Start that the limited controllers were not approved by Sony and therefore cannot be raffled off. The anniversary week must therefore be postponed to an unknown point in time. Instead of a DualSense controller with a design that takes getting used to, the winners can only look forward to hoodies and subscription gifts from various Twitch streamers.

You can read the statement from Mcdonalds here: “Sony PlayStation has not approved the use of its controller in promotional materials in connection with the planned Stream Week event and we apologize for any inconvenience. McDonald’s Stream Week has been postponed and the Sony PlayStation controllers will not be included in the giveaway. “

A very special design

You can see a photo of the said DualSense controller below these lines. There we see the PS5 gamepad in the unmistakable McDonalds design. On the left we see a serving of french fries, while on the right we see a Big Mac. We can see the well-known logo on the touchpad.

The PS5 controller is now officially offered in two other colors in addition to the white standard version. Since June you have had the opportunity to purchase the innovative DualSense in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red.
