Fries and burgers are always with you

Were those recently released PlayStation 5 controllers in red and black not really doing it for you? If your answer to that question is yes and you live in Australia, you could instead try to win this PS5 pad themed around one of the planet's most popular fast-food chains. McDonald's has created its own limited edition controller, and we'll let you decide if it's totally hideous or not.

You've got fries on the left, a hamburger on the right, and the McDonald's logo in the centre of the touchpad. You're basically a walking (or sitting down?) advertisement for the brand if you happen to win one, but then that might be no bad thing for someone so passionate about Ronald McDonald. While the thumbstick and triggers have been left alone, the D-pad and face buttons have also been spray-painted yellow.

There are 50 of these McDonald's themed PS5 controllers for the community to win, and to be in with a shot of doing so, you need to watch certain streamers on Twitch. They'll be playing the likes of Overwatch, Minecraft, FIFA 21, and Night in the Woods across the next seven days. Do you want one? If not, campaign to make the Big Tasty meal a permanent menu item in the comments below.

About Liam Croft

Liam grew up with a PlayStation controller in his hands and a love affair for Metal Gear Solid. Nowadays, he can be found playing the latest and greatest PS5 games as well as supporting Derby County. That last detail is his downfall.

@render wtf mine too... how ugly it is... MC you can keep this crap.

If I would win this thing I would just buy a replacement shell lol

Ew. I’d put that thing straight on eBay.

I love the occasional maccy d's and a free spare controller is never a bad thing, but this pad looks like it has liver damage!

The only way this could be worse is if it had scary Ronald McDonald's face on it

I quite like it, not enough to ever watch someone on Twitch but still

Oh awesome, I hope it delivers an authentic McDonalds experience like using the speaker to play the sounds of screaming children and minimum wage staff being berated.

Does it come with some grease already on it?

Release that controller with a remaster of Global Gladiators and that's a winner.

God I fancy a Big Mac now.

Something's off.. This thing looks way too slim for what it represents

@Shepherd_Tallon I actually thought no one would get it plus it shows my age😂😂 you're right though, great game.

But they cant leave the house because of there dictatorship gov.

Na na na na naaaa, I’m hating it 😂😂😂

They can keep it, f*cking monstrosity...

one of the greatest mysteries of life is......that i want this.

At least if you get stick drift with this, chances are it'll be grease or ketchup stuck down the side of the stick...

I would buy it if it was just a red controller with an M in the middle

@HuJack007 What's the number of cases in your country? ...

@fR_eeBritney Good one!

I suppose it might be worth money one day.

As an Aussie: that is a goddamn^ eyesore. I will actively avoid Maccas just so I can’t accidentally be entered in the draw for this monstrosity.

^ (as an Aussie, this would also normally be a different word, but this is a public comment)

I thought maybe this was a controller for Kojima’s next game

Nope... just checked. Deffo 30th of July not April 1st.

I like the colour scheme, just a shame it has the McDonald's logo and food on it.

It’s the only controller that gives you heart disease while you play.

I absolutely need this idk why but I love it. Also finally Australia gets something exclusive

@fR_eeBritney lol

I hate it. The kids love it. Want to know if it's grease absorbing?

@HuJack007 Have to admit, my immediate thought was “boy this doesn’t make up for police lockdowns.”

Hold on there, you need to login to post a comment...

Sony confirms that it will bring more PlayStation games to PC

KitGuru 30 July, 2021 - 10:10am

As things are, the web swinging is polished. The sense of speed and physics truly add a sense of weight to every tug and pull of Spidey's webs attaching to nearby buildings as he zips through the sky. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales made further tweaks to the trick system, adding more personality to these moves, making just casually swinging along even more enjoyable. Even so, there are still a few other additions that Insomniac can consider adding to the web-swinging mechanics in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

As demonstrated in the many animated series as well as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3, the Symbiote suit enables Spider-Man to swing faster, jump farther, and endows him with more enhanced strength. Most notably, is is technically a sentient creature, trying to permanently bond to Peter and control his actions. This can be represented in gameplay by not only making players able to traverse the world more quickly, but also more aggressively. Landing on the ground from a high point could crunch the concrete below Spidey's feet, perhaps lifting vehicles that can be used as weapons.

Maybe the player experiences hallucinations because of the Symbiote, similar to the sanity effects in Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem. This could lead to once-familiar locations looking completely different, simulating the sense of losing touch with reality as Peter's struggles with the new suit. For an added touch, the citizens of New York can react different to Spider-Man, now cowering in fear rather than approaching for a selfie or high five.

Maybe snow, rain, and even accelerated wind speeds can affect web swinging in a future title. Spidey sways in the wind during a storm, something which the player could feel with the DualSense controller. Wet surfaces may cause the side of buildings to be slippery, encouraging more careful button pushes and timing while pulling off all of Spider-Man's parkour moves. Having more locations that can be entered and exited in real time would be a great addition as well, perhaps introducing photography side missions in which Peter Parker has to report to J. Jonah Jameson inside the Daily Bugle.

An added bonus will be the inclusion of Queens, Peter's stomping grounds, which was notably absent from the first two installments. While the buildings are smaller and would not allow for as wild web swinging, it is bursting with personality - just like Harlem was for Miles Morales in his spin-off title. It would also be interesting if plot points brought Spider-Man to entirely new locations outside of New York for a change of visual scenery, as well as moment-to-moment gameplay such as Dr. Doom's Latveria or Wakanda, the home base of Black Panther.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is rumored to be in development.

PS5 restock updates: Where to buy a PlayStation 5

Gamesradar 29 July, 2021 - 05:35pm

We're checking for PS5 restock updates at all the top stores daily to help you buy one without paying more than retail

For instance, we've noticed that in the US, PS5 restocks are happening most often between Wednesday and Friday. While things in the UK are a little less predictable, we can say that weekend PS5 restocks are particularly uncommon, so you'll want to do most of your hunting during the week (when your boss isn't looking, of course).

Our best advice for snagging a PS5 is to regularly check the below retail links for stock. We'll give you a heads up on social media if we know of incoming stock, but it's best just to bookmark this page and keep tabs as often as your mental health will permit.

Here are the easiest links for PS5 restock updates in the US and UK:

We'd always advise going with stores sticking to the regular prices rather than giving in to the scalpers on online auction sites. Yes, the PS5 is lovely, but it's not worth paying over a grand for one. The only reason we'll show you something over the basic asking price of the PS5 is if has some bundled extras, but as our lonely PS5 bundles page would attest, we'd just concentrate on trying to find the console on its own for now.

If you're able to bag one, be sure to head on over to our best PS5 accessories and best PS5 headsets guides to complete your setup.

Let's have a closer look at some retailers below. We'll let you know what they've been up to lately and how likely they are to get PS5 restock updates any time soon.
