According to a news announced on Logitech’s Twitter page today, Chinese technology company Tencent Games and Logitech have started working on a handheld console to be able to play cloud-based games. While Steam Deck orders have not been completed yet, a new competitor in the industry seems to annoy Valve.
But according to the statements, this handheld console will not have powerful hardware, unlike Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch . While cloud-based gaming technology is developing day by day, Tencent and Logitech, who want to catch up with the industry, think that they can produce a much more affordable handheld console. The upcoming handheld console will support cloud gaming systems such as Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now .
We're thrilled to announce an official partnership with @TencentGames to bring a cloud gaming handheld to market later this year that will support multiple cloud gaming services.

It Could Be The Most Affordable Handheld Console!
The console, which will be produced in cooperation with Logitech-Tencent Games, which is not expected to have high hardware according to experts, will be available for sale at an affordable price . It will only have a screen and game controller. Since the games will be run on cloud servers, the handheld console does not need to have high-power hardware such as the Steam Deck. Currently, cloud games can be played on mobile devices. The handheld console, which will be produced by Logitech and Tencent Games, is expected to bring a new style to the industry.
