The Backbone One is one of our favorite mobile gaming controllers and right now it’s on sale for $70, down from its usual $100 price, for Prime Day. We feature the controller in our list of the best phone controllers for mobile gaming. It’s comfortable to hold, easy to use, widely compatible with many games, and connects directly to your phone, meaning you don’t have to worry about holding a charge or connecting via Bluetooth. Direct connection also reduces delay.
Purchasing Backbone One also gives you one year of access to your Backbone+ subscription service. Subscriptions can be annoying, but Backbone+ offers some nice additions including helping you manage your mobile game collection and easily taking screenshots and gameplay videos. It also comes with one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for new subscribers and fully supports Xbox game streaming options on your mobile phone.
Unfortunately, Backbone One currently only supports iOS devices, but an Android version of Backbone is currently in the works.
Amazon Prime Day 2022 is happening right now, but both Amazon and its competitors like to offer countless discounts during the event. There are discounts on things like gaming monitors, video games, new TVs, and more from brands like Apple. Amazon Prime members can also get 25 games included with their subscription, while Target hopes to take its own cut of the holiday shopping with its own Anti-Prime Day deals.
