Cloud gaming is still in its infancy but it appears to be growing quickly. So, it should come as no surprise that tech manufacturers Logitech have entered the scene with the G CLOUD, a mobile gaming console built specifically for cloud gaming. It’s been described as the Netflix of gaming but, effectively, cloud gaming is indeed a way to stream games. Rather than having the physical game or the file downloaded, video games are run on remote servers and then streamed directly to your device.
The Logitech G CLOUD is developed with Tencent Games and is an Android-based handheld with support for Xbox Game Pass, Nvidia GeForce Now, Steam Link, and the Google Play Store. There’s no cellular connection so you’ll need a Wi-Fi connection to play. There’s 12 hours of battery life, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G Octa-core CPU, a 7-inch, 1080p screen, and stereo speakers. Design-wise it looks fairly similar to any other handheld console.
The Logitech G CLOUD is available now for pre-orders at a discounted rate of $300 and is expected to ship in October.
