The Backbone One PlayStation Edition follows the aesthetics of the PS5 as well as its accessories, such as DualSense and the official Pulse headset, in terms of finish. Sony has also informed that the device does not use its own charger or batteries, but the power of the mobile phone itself to run – so it only works when it is switched on.
The biggest conceptual difference from the controller to the DualSense is in the placement of the analog sticks. They are in the wrong positions, for example, they look like an Xbox controller. The manufacturer also released a video to demonstrate the accessory’s practical operation, running some games and with people in different environments.
The controller will also have BackBone’s own app to improve the user experience and maintain integration with PlayStation consoles. According to the company, the application will allow navigation between titles, as well as display information about game updates and news.
Please note that in order to use remote play, you need to have an internet connection on your mobile phone and console, via mobile internet or Wi-Fi. Unlike Microsoft’s rival Xbox Cloud Gaming, the PlayStation feature requires the user to have a switched-on and connected console, PS4 or PS5, which can be accessed remotely via an internal or external network. The feature isn’t just for mobile – it works on PC, Windows or Mac and doesn’t require a PS Plus subscription.
