The Backbone One mobile controller: PlayStation Edition is now available for Android
Backbone One – The PlayStation Edition controller, made by Sony and Backbone, is now available for Android.
Last July, the two companies teamed up to release an iOS version of the controller with a Lightning port. The idea of a Backbone Controller is to slide your phone into its extended grip and play games.
The iOS and Android versions of the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition resemble the Sony console’s DualSense controller. This means that users can use PlayStation glyphs instead of traditional ABXY commands.
This controller lets you play select PlayStation titles with the PS Remote Play app. However, you can also play some compatible games like “Call of Duty: Mobile”, “Fortnite” and “Diablo Immortal” from Play Store (or App Store).
Users can download the Backbone app for a personalized PlayStation experience and updates. Additionally, the app acts as a hub for all compatible games, including those from streaming services like Xbox Game Pass, Nvidia GeForce Now, and Amazon Luna.
The Backbone One – PlayStation Edition is available for purchase for $99 in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand. Sony said it will soon make the controller available to users in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
