If you have an Xbox/PS/PC you need a @backbone controller. It's AMAZING. So well made and the app for it is fantastic. Using my phone a lot to play around the house lately.

Backbone One on iPhone 11 Pro Max vs. Nintendo Switch Lite. Better screen, better battery life, no Mario.

I plugged in my Backbone, started playing CoD: Mobile and I literally went 20-0 in my first game of the day.
