Backbone One PlayStation iPhone controller sees first deal at $75 for Black Friday, more – 9to5Toys
The Backbone One has long been considered among the best all-in-one mobile gaming controllers on the market. The Xbox-centric model released last year and carries a $100 regular price tag, much like the new white PlayStation edition we detailed at launch over the summer. And now both models are now seeing Black Friday price drops to $74.99 shipped via the brand’s official Amazon storefront and at Target. The black Backbone One delivers a fully-integrated mobile iPhone gaming experience for Xbox Game Pass while the white edition the company teamed up with Sony on is essentially the first official iPhone controller for PlayStation. Both models provide full controller layouts with Xbox-style thumbstick layouts, themed face buttons, Lightning passthrough charging, a 3.5mm headphone audio jack, and dedicated PS/Xbox home buttons. Get a closer look at the Xbox model in our hands-on review while you’re at it.
A more affordable Switch-style iPhone controller comes by way of Razer’s Kishi Mobile Game Controller. While some folks suggest the Backbone One is a more thoroughly-integrated experience, the Razer Kishi is still a solid option and one that comes in at a much lower $45 price tag right now.
And speaking of iPhone gamepads, be sure to check out our launch coverage and hands-on review of PowerA’s new MOGA XP5-i Plus Apple Arcade and cloud gaming controller that launched earlier this year alongside the brand’s MOGA XP7-X mobile controller that delivers a form-factor akin to the models featured above. The 2022 model RiotPWR Xbox Cloud Gaming iPhone mobile controller is worth a look as well.
