The eagerly awaited introduction of the Logitech G Cloud handheld, a gaming device specifically designed for cloud gaming, has been recently announced by Logitech. With its portable console, the Logitech G Cloud users may primarily access cloud gaming platforms like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now.
Logitech G Cloud handheld will allow gamers to play Xbox Pass games
The Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription’s titles, such as Grounded, Sea of Thieves, Halo Infinite, and the most recent addition, Deathloop, will all be playable on it thanks to complete Xbox Cloud Gaming compatibility.
The Microsoft vice president for Xbox Cloud Gaming, Catherine Gluckstein, praised the Logitech G Cloud handheld in the press release, saying, “Xbox Cloud Gaming was created to enable users across the world to access Xbox games whenever they want, on the device of their choice.”
He continued, “At Xbox, we’ve been on this road to extend the fun and community of gaming to more people, and we’re delighted to see Logitech G introduce a cloud-gaming device that will enthrall users with Xbox games in more places.
Logitech G Cloud gaming handheld specifications, price, and launch date
The specifications and layout match information that emerged in late August. On the seven-inch, 450-nit touchscreen, users can stream games in 1080p at up to 60 FPS. The inputs one would anticipate are there, besides a D-pad, face buttons, twin thumbsticks, bumpers, and triggers, in addition to selection buttons on both sides, a G button, and a Home button.
Like the majority of conventional controllers, the Logitech G Cloud handheld has two bumper buttons and two trigger buttons. In addition, the handheld device from Logitech has haptics, a gyroscope, and remappable settings with a 12+ hour battery life.
The pricing of the Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld will be reasonable, less expensive than the Steam Deck, and about equivalent to the Nintendo Switch. Although the overall estimated retail price for one will be $349.99 USD, one may presently pre-order one for a $50 discount, reducing the cost to $299.99. The Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld will thankfully go on sale on October 17 so users won’t have to wait much longer.
