Logitech unveils G CLOUD handheld for Xbox streaming: Here’s everything we know

What you need to know

  • Logitech has teamed up with Microsoft and NVIDIA to offer a handheld based entirely on Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now cloud gaming services.
  • The Logitech G CLOUD gaming handheld is an Android-based all-in-one gaming handheld with WiFi and Bluetooth support that will be released in October 2022.
  • The handheld comes with Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce Now included as standard, with support for Google Play services, with access to services such as Stadia, Amazon Luna and Steam Link, among other gaming applications.
  • It starts at $349 and is set to launch in the US and Canada next month, with other regions to follow.

One of my biggest criticisms of Xbox Cloud Gaming was the peripherals. Touch controls are fine for some games, and mobile controllers like the Razer Kishi and the GameSir X2 family are decent in certain circumstances. However, phone games have a number of drawbacks, from notifications that interrupt your game, battery drain, or even touch controls that hide UI elements. We called on Microsoft to create its own handheld, and this might be the next best thing.

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