Logitech reveals its G CLOUD mobile device for Xbox streaming: here’s all we know

What you need to know

  • Logitech has teamed up with Microsoft and NVIDIA to offer a handheld device powered entirely by Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud gaming services.
  • The Logitech G CLOUD handheld gaming device is a multifunctional Android gaming device with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, scheduled to be released in October 2022.
  • The handheld device comes standard with Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce Now, with support for Google Play services, with access to services such as Stadia, Amazon Luna, Steam Link, and other gaming applications.
  • It starts at $ 349 and is scheduled to launch in the US and Canada next month with other regions coming later.

One of my biggest criticisms of Xbox Cloud Gaming has been peripherals. Touch controls are fine for some games, and mobile controllers like the Razer Kishi and GameSir X2 family are decent in some circumstances. However, playing on the phone has a number of downsides, ranging from non-game notifications to draining your battery, and even tactile controls obscuring UI elements. I have called on Microsoft to create its own portable device and this could be the next best thing.

Say hello to Logitech G Cloud, offering a dedicated streaming device starting at $ 349 starting in the US and Canada.
