Sony has enriched its product lineup with the launch of the ‘Backbone One – PlayStation Edition’, a dedicated gaming controller designed specifically to enhance the mobile gaming experience on Android devices.
This premium controller, similar to its iPhone counterpart unveiled last year, derives its aesthetics from the PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller. Priced at $99.99 / £99.99, it’s not just a controller but a nod to the quintessential PlayStation design language, thereby offering a familiar tactile experience to PlayStation enthusiasts.
Powered by Your Phone: The Backbone One Controller’s User-Friendly Interface
What sets the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition apart is its convenience and ease of use. The controller is powered directly by the user’s phone, eliminating the need for separate charging. For audio aficionados, the controller offers a direct connect feature for the Pulse 3D headset for PlayStation 5 via the 3.5mm headphone jack, enabling immersive audio experiences on the go.
The Backbone One – PlayStation Edition opens up a universe of gaming possibilities. Whether it’s PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 games streamed via Remote Play or other game streaming services compatible with controllers, the Backbone One is ready to take them on.
Popular Google Play and App Store titles like Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, and Diablo Immortal, among others, can also be enjoyed using this controller.
Unified Gaming Content and Additional Perks: The Backbone App
The Backbone app is a true companion for the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition controller. It consolidates all gaming content under one roof and offers extra benefits. These include a 1-month Google Play Pass for Android users or a 1-month Apple Arcade subscription for iPhone users, along with a 3-month Discord Nitro membership.
Sony has scheduled the PlayStation Showcase for Wednesday, May 24. Gaming enthusiasts can eagerly look forward to more exciting revelations about the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition during this event.
