PS5, PS4 Finally Go Portable with Officially Licensed PlayStation Backbone One

Many of you will harbor fondness for the PS Vita and its predecessor the PSP, and understandably so – both were superb portable systems. But with the likelihood of Sony making another extremely low, this may just be the next best thing: an officially licensed Backbone Onewhich works in tandem with an iPhone and the PS Remote Play app to allow you to enjoy your PS5 and PS4 wherever you are.

Some of you will be familiar with this product, but for those of you who aren’t, it’s essentially a chassis for your smartphone that includes traditional controls. In this instance, the product has been endorsed by PlayStation, so you get the console’s iconic face buttons and a color scheme that closely matches the design ethos of the DualSense.

“The elegant colours, materials, and finishes are all inspired by the design of the PS5 console’s DualSense wireless controller, including transparent face buttons and a visually distinctive floating appearance,” the press release points out. It also notes that the PS Remote Play app has been recently updated to even allow you to wake up your console whatever you are.
