Update: McDonald’s Australia has confirmed to us that McDonald’s Stream Week has been postponed and Sony PlayStation controllers will not be included in the giveaway. Here’s the statement:
“The image was provided to media in error and there is no commercial relationship between McDonald’s Australia and Sony PlayStation. Sony PlayStation has not authorised the use of its controller in promotional materials related to the proposed Stream Week event and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. McDonald’s Stream Week has been postponed and Sony PlayStation controllers will not be included in the giveaway.”
In celebration of McDonald’s 50th anniversary, McDonald’s Australia will be giving away a limited edition DualSense Controller with McDonald’s burgers and fries on it.
This offer will be exclusively available to Aussies. In order to participate in the giveaway, Australian residents need to watch several Twitch streams being sponsored by McDonald’s over the course of next week, starting July 31st. They are:
- Muselk streaming Overwatch – Sunday, 1 pm
- Jacko G streaming Overwatch – Monday, 6 pm
- X2Twins streaming Minecraft – Tuesday, 10 pm
- Cripsy streaming FIFA21 – Wednesday, 1 pm
- Kiki streaming Night in the Woods – Thursday, 8 pm
- Crayator streaming Mario Kart – Friday, 4 pm
- Aiden AK streaming World of Warcraft – Saturday, 4 pm
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.
