Logitech announces a new portable device dedicated to cloud gaming

Logitech G is working with Tencent Games to launch a dedicated cloud gaming handheld later this year. The new hardware will be designed for cloud gaming services, offering a dedicated device with controls instead of the typical cases you attach to phones. The cloud gaming handheld will support Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia’s GeForce Now service, as well as Logitech and Tencent both work with Microsoft and Nvidia on hardware.

Logitech and Tencent are just teasing the device today, and there’s no mention of a release date, price, or even what the cloud gaming handheld looks like. Logitech will obviously draw on its experience building gaming accessories for PC and consoles, while Tencent seems to be more of an operational partner.

“As one of the world’s leading game development, publishing and operating platforms, Tencent Games has been at the forefront of innovation and that’s why we partnered with them,” says Ujesh. Desai, General Manager of Logitech G. “As someone who grew up playing video games, the idea of ​​being able to stream and play AAA games almost anywhere is super exciting, and we can’t wait to show everyone we worked on.

The new cloud gaming handheld has only one dedicated website where you can sign up for updates, but Logitech is promising a launch later this year, so we should get more information in the coming months.

This mysterious new handheld comes months after Valve released its Steam Deck handheld, which helped transform the idea of ​​PC gaming on the go. Steam Deck supports cloud gaming services like Stadia and Xbox Cloud Gamingbut some people (As Edge editor-in-chief Alex Cranz) might want a cheaper alternative to the Steam Deck that can run cloud games and doesn’t rely on your phone. It looks like Logitech is building just that.
