Albeit bizarre-looking, the classic red and yellow McDonald ‘s-themed DualSense controller is certainly one of its kind. This is a unique opportunity for limited-edition controller hunters in Australia to snag the prize. However, despite being an American-born brand, McDonald’s has not announced this giveaway in the US as of yet.

The limited-edition DualSense controller features McDonald’s signature color scheme. Moreover, it also features the McDonald’s logo right at the center of the DualSense touchpad. Furthermore, the handles feature drawings of McDonald’s fries on the left and a hamburger on the right.

Unlike PS4’s DualShock controllers, PS5’s DualSense controllers do not come with a wide range of designs. The DualSense controllers are only available in the shades White, Midnight Black, and Cosmic Red. While the white controller is the default one you get with your console, many opt for custom skins.

According to Amazon Australia’s listings, the White, Midnight Black, and Cosmic Red DualSense Controllers are priced at $117.89 AUD, $116.89 AUD, and $127.89 AUD respectively.
