Backbone One PlayStation Edition now official

Gotta have an iPhone



Backbone One PlayStation Edition

Have you ever wished there was an easier way to do Remote Play using your iPhone? That’s quite specific, and that’s exactly what the Backbone One PlayStation Edition is for.

Backwhat? In case you’re unfamiliar, Backbone is mobile controller maker. They have, so far, the Backbone One both for the iPhone and Android. This new one, though, is PlayStation licensed. But what does that mean?

For one, it’s white. Following the original colorway of both the PlayStation 5 and the DualSense controller. Also, you get PlayStation face buttons instead of the usual A, B, X, and Y buttons.

Being PlayStation licensed also means it’s readily compatible with PS Remote Play. Whether you’re out and about or just somewhere else inside your home.

But it doesn’t just work with only Remote Play. All App Store games with controller support will work with the Backbone One PlayStation edition. Some of those games include Genshin Impact, Call of Duty: Mobile, and Fantasian.

Backbone also has a companion app. And on this specific model, you’ll find a row dedicated to updates and new releases from PlayStation.

Price and availability

It retails for US$ 99.99 and is only currently available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. More countries will follow shortly.



Valve, Lenovo are giving away the Steam Deck and Legion Go

For tomorrow’s The Game Awards



The upcoming Game Awards is an amazing time for gamers. Aside from awarding the best of the best this year, the annual event also previews some of the most highly anticipated titles coming in the next year or so. Now, if you tune in, you might also get a chance to win cool freebies. Valve and Lenovo are giving away a hundred units each of the Steam Deck and the Legion Go.

Earlier today, Valve announced a giveaway for those who tune into the Game Awards on December 7. Viewers can sign up to win one of a hundred Steam Deck OLEDs. The signup period is incredibly slim, though. Interested viewers can place their entries only during the show — that is, from 4:30pm to 8:00pm, Pacific Standard Time. Plus, only residents in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and several countries in Europe can join.

Not to be outdone, Lenovo has followed suit and announced its own giveaway. As with the above, viewers can win one of a hundred units of the Legion Go during the awarding ceremony. Unfortunately, whereas Valve opened the sweepstakes for several countries around the world, only residents in the United States can sign up for the chance to win a Legion Go.

It’s a big giveaway for both companies. For one, the two handheld consoles are likely on a lot of Christmas wish lists this year. Both devices are certainly worthy of their hype, but their exorbitant price tags are probably too much to splurge on. The giveaway presents an interesting opportunity to grab two of the hottest devices in 2023.

Grand Theft Auto VI gets its first-ever trailer

Coming in 2025



Sometimes, Christmas comes early. Despite scheduling its release for December 5, Rockstar Games has uploaded the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto VI more than 12 hours earlier than expected.

Available now through its official platforms, the first trailer reveals our first official look at the next major entry in the legendary Grand Theft Auto franchise. As expected, the sixth title will be set in the sunny shores of Vice City, a locale that hasn’t seen a revival in major platforms yet. Whereas the fifth game’s setting was a version of California, Vice City will take on modern-day Florida and all its various hijinks.

As was spoiled through major leaks in the past, Grand Theft Auto VI will feature two main protagonists, Lucia (the franchise’s first female lead) and Jason. The trailer focuses mostly on Lucia who ends up in prison at the start of the trailer. Based on the depictions in the trailer, the game will focus on the duo’s chase for the better life (through illegal ways, of course) in Vice City.

Besides the duo, Vice City will have sunny beaches, swamps, bike gang, mud clubs, hot cars, and crazy animals. It’s a departure from the Miami-Vice-like depiction in the original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Instead, it will represent the city in a more contemporary fashion. Social media seems to be a prime focus, too; various fictional video platforms are in the spotlight in the trailer.

And now for the meaty part. The trailer ends with a release window (finally): 2025. Grand Theft Auto VI will arrive, at least, on the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S. A PC version is still unconfirmed, but it’s likely arriving on the platform, too.
