(UPDATE) In a response to IGN from McDonald’s Australia, the McDualSense was never going to see the light of day.
The image was provided to media in error and there is no commercial relationship between McDonald’s Australia and Sony PlayStation.
Revealed earlier this week, the ‘McDualSense’ aka an upcoming promotional item by McDonald’s Australia to celebrate their 50th anniversary, where gamers could win one of 50 customized controllers (gloriously pictured below) is now in jeopardy of never seeing the light of the day.
The original plan was for McDonald’s to sponsor a set of streams this week giving fans the opportunity to win a McDualSense and other glorious prizes while watching said streams. Easy enough, right? Wrong.
Sadly, it looks as if we have a McProblem in the ‘land down under’. McDonald’s issued a statement that the streams will be postponed and that the McDualSense is no longer part of the McPromotion. Guess someone forgot to ask permission to use the DualSense in their upcoming plans.
Unfortunately, McDonald’s stream week has been postponed and won’t be going ahead this Sunday. We are unable to confirm a new date for the proposed event at this time. We will have some great prizing including Macca’s 50th Birthday Hoodies and 50 channel subscriptions for each streamer to give away. We will be in contact with the new timing as soon as we have it confirmed.
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.
Shame! This is totally a McBummer because even though I don’t live in Australia, I would love to add it to my PlayStation collection. I mean, I think we can all agree that McDonald’s fries are top tier, right??
While the future of these 50 DualSense controllers is currently in the air, these could be super rare McCollector items highly sought-after by gaming collectors worldwide. We will keep you updated if any more news pertaining to them hits.
