Today, we are excited to announce that the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition, an officially licensed smartphone console, is now available to iOS and Android users internationally.
The reception we had when we recently announced the Backbone One – the PlayStation version for iOS was incredibly exciting. We’ve seen many gamers take advantage of the PS Remote Play app feature, allowing gamers to stream PS4 and PS5 games from the console using the Backbone One – PlayStation version while they’re out and about or anywhere in the house. It has quickly become one of the most popular gaming features on the BackBone platform.
We’ve heard time and time again from Android users asking for the same best-in-class gaming experience, so we’re excited to offer it now. Backbone One PlayStation version for Android also.
We’ve worked closely with the PlayStation team on the look and feel of Backbone One – the PlayStation version for Android. All colors, materials and finishes are inspired by the design of the DualSense Wireless Controller, including the transparent face buttons. It matches the look of the PS5 console, and if you already own the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, you can connect it directly to the Backbone One via the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The latest update to the PS Remote Play app on Google Play makes it easy to set up and play with the Backbone One – PlayStation Edition. If you have broadband internet access and a PS5 or PS4 console, plug your iPhone or Android device into the Backbone One and instantly start playing PS5 and PS4 games with the power of the PS Remote Play app – whether it’s outside or even just about anywhere else in the house* . See the PlayStation Remote Play website for more information.
When using the PlayStation app, players can double-click the options button on the Backbone One – PlayStation version to easily access the app. In addition, the latest PlayStation app update will also support controller-based navigation in landscape orientation to improve the user experience.
Available games may vary by region.
The Backbone One also works great with Google Play and App Store games as well as other controller-enabled game streaming services, and can be used with games like Call of Duty: Mobile, Fortnite, Diablo Immortal, and more.
Players can download the Backbone app for a customized PlayStation experience. Within the app, you’ll see many PlayStation integrations such as custom glyphs representing popular PlayStation skins, and the ability to browse hundreds of game titles. The Backbone Android app brings together all your games in one place, including supported App Store games and game streaming services. Players will also find a dedicated row within the Backbone app with new PlayStation releases and updates.
Finally, Backbone One PlayStation Edition will soon be available in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, in addition to currently being available in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.
We hope Android owners will enjoy the PlayStation app, PS Remote Play and the original mobile gaming experience with Backbone One – PlayStation Edition.
