Sony has announced an official licensed controller for the iPhone, developed by Backbone. The device is sharpened for games on a smartphone – both mobile and console, available through Remote Play.
The gadget was called Backbone One PlayStation Edition. It has a sliding design that allows you to fix the smartphone in a horizontal orientation. Suitable for all sizes, from iPhone 13 Mini to iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The layout of the buttons and sticks is about the same as the Xbox controller, but visually it is more reminiscent of Sony’s DualSense.
The Backbone One PlayStation Edition is powered directly from the iPhone via the Lightning port, and can be connected to the network itself. The controller also has a standard headphone audio port.
In this form, the controller will be exclusive to the iPhone. Its price was $100. Later, an analogue from Backbone for Android devices should be presented.
