Logitech unveils its G CLOUD handheld for Xbox streaming – that’s all we know

What do you need to know

  • Logitech has partnered with Microsoft and NVIDIA to offer a handheld based entirely on the Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud gaming services.
  • The Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld is an Android-based all-in-one gaming handheld with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, scheduled to launch in October 2022.
  • The handheld comes with Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce Now bundled as standard, with support for Google Play Services, with access to services like Stadia, Amazon Luna, and Steam Link, among other gaming apps.
  • It starts at $ 349 USD and launches in the US and Canada next month, with more regions to follow later.

One of my biggest criticisms of Xbox Cloud Gaming has been the peripherals. Touch controls are fine for some games, and mobile controllers like the Razer Kishi family and GameSir X2 are decent in some circumstances. However, games on the phone have a number of drawbacks, from notifications that interrupt the game, drain the battery, or even touch controls that obscure UI elements. I’ve asked Microsoft to make their own PDA and this might just be the next best thing.

Say hello to Logitech G Cloud, which offers a dedicated streaming handheld, available starting at just $ 349, starting in the US and Canada.
