The device will support multiple cloud gaming services and will be launched later this year.
Logitech G and Tencent Games announced a partnership to create a cloud gaming handheld that will be released later this year. The device will combine Logitech G’s expertise in hardware with Tencent Games’ expertise in software services. It will support multiple cloud gaming services, and the companies are working with the Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce NOW teams to bring players AAA games "when they are away from their console or PC."
Cloud gaming uses data center servers to stream video games to consumers, so you don't need to download or install games, they are rendered and played on remote servers, and users interact with them locally on their devices.
"Logitech G’s leadership in PC and console gaming gear make them an ideal partner to help us realize the vision of bringing a better gaming experience to gamers around the globe," said Daniel Wu, general manager of Tencent Games Smart Solution Innovation Lab. "Today marks the start of a new opportunity for our companies to further push the frontiers of gaming devices."
