The shape of both controllers is similar and equally comfortable for gaming. But the layout of the buttons, in our opinion, is more conveniently done in the Razer Kishi, since they are located in the same way as on classic console controllers. On the other hand, the Backbone One has a slightly different button layout and can be a little confusing. Also, Backbone One has an audio jack.

What games support each

And finally, the games that support these controllers. While more and more developers are adding support for both of these popular controllers to games, Backbone One still has a larger game catalog. However, famous games like Diablo Immortal can be played on both controllers.

So, excluding the presence of an audio jack, Razer Kishi and Backbone One are equal. Therefore, choose a controller, depending on your device, and your preferences in button layout. We hope this guide was helpful to you.
