Backbone One iPhone Controller Gets Massive Black Friday Discount

The Backbone One is among the best mobile gamepads on the market, and right now it's getting a generous discount.


Mobile gaming is bigger than ever, and the best way to experience your favorite titles on the road is with a good controller. The Backbone One managed to find a spot on our best phone controller list, although its $100 price tag could put it out of reach for some shoppers. That’s not the case on Black Friday, as right now you can snag the Backbone One for just $63.69--the lowest price we’ve seen all year.

Backbone’s elegant design also provides you with passthrough charging and a 3.5mm headset jack. You can even use the controller with other devices (such as an iPad or PC) to play games over Bluetooth, giving you a bit of versatility for when you’re not on the road. If you’re not sold on the Backbone One, be sure to check out the steeply discounted Razer Kishi, which is on sale for just $45, down from $100.

Tons of other Black Friday deals are now live, so if you’re looking for more gaming gear this holiday season, consider checking out our Black Friday Hub--which aggregates the best deals from around the web.
