Mobile game controller maker, Backbone, has announced an officially-licensed PlayStation version of its popular mobile phone controller, Backbone One. Inspired by PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller, the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition has the look and feel of the PS5 controller, right down to the transparent face buttons and the button for capturing gameplay footage.

Yes, it does have the PlayStation face buttons, so it’d feel familiar and you never have to look down to remember which button to press. Another highlight of the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition controller is the unique integration with the PlayStation app and the PS Remote Play app, which lets you play PlayStation games on your iPhone.

But it is not limited to PS titles; it also works with App Store games and other game streaming services that support controllers, including Genshin Impact, Fantasian, Call of Duty: Mobile, and more. Using the Backbone App, you can further customize your PS experience and the app also boasts a dedicated row inside with new releases and updates from PS.

Backbone One – PlayStation Edition Mobile Game Controller for iPhone is available now for US$99.99 from the Backbone website as well as on Amazon. An Android version is expected in November.
