PlayStation’s official iPhone controller looks like a funky DualSense

Backbone One — PlayStation Edition costs $100 and is available now

Sony teamed up with Backbone to create an official PlayStation mobile controller for iPhone users, and if you’re a fan of the PS5’s DualSense, you might like the aesthetic. Like similar products on the market, Backbone One — PlayStation Edition will fit your phone for gaming on the go. It’s available now for $100 directly through Backbone.

PlayStation doesn’t exactly have a major mobile presence, at least not yet.

In a PlayStation blog post about the controller, Backbone CEO Maneet Khaira weighed in on the appeal of Remote Play, which is a way to play PS4 and PS5 games on a phone over Wi-Fi or data. mobiles. Some gamers swear by Remote Play (especially when using the technology at home), and others really can’t be bothered with streaming games, period.

That said, “Backbone One also works wonderfully with games from the App Store and other game streaming services that support controllers, including Genshin Impact, Fantastic, call of duty: mobileand more.” So if you’re a big mobile gamer in general, you have options.

Would I feel weird using this for Xbox Cloud Gaming? Maybe. But I would.

Backbone One — PlayStation Edition weighs 4.87 ounces. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, pass-through charging, and draws “minimal power” directly from your iPhone, meaning it doesn’t need to be charged separately before you start gaming.

I can see why Sony would want this type of product, but its appeal seems limited at the moment unless you’re already in the market for this sort of thing and prefer this PlayStation-branded design. Perhaps in the future, with a broader focus on cloud gaming tied to mobile devices, it will make more sense. Sony is behind Microsoft on that front, especially when it comes to Xbox’s newly added touch controls.

Worth noting: The original black Backbone controller is also $100, and there’s an Android model. Backbone One: PlayStation Edition, meanwhile, is an iPhone exclusive.
