Cloud video game services, including Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now, will be able to rely on a new handheld device compatible, the Logitech G Gaming Handheld, developed by Logitech's partnership with Tencent Games, Microsoft and Nvidia.

The small computer, a competitor to Valve's Steam Deck, will launch in course of the year 2022.

The x27; the idea of ​​being able to stream content and play AAA games almost anywhere is super exciting, and we can't wait to show everyone what we've been working on,” said Ujesh Desai, general manager of Logitech G, per press release.

The Swiss company specializing in the manufacture of computer accessories has been stingy with details on the handheld. No specific release date, price or physical preview has been revealed. It is known, however, that the forthcoming device will be compatible with several cloud gaming services.

The announcement of the Logitech G Gaming Handheld comes about six months after Valve launched its own handheld for video games, the Steam Deck. It is compatible with many titles for PC from its Steam platform, but also most cloud gaming services, such as Google Stadia and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Gamers and players have to shell out a hefty amount to get their hands on this handheld, ranging from $500 to $820. Tencent and Logitech's version might be a more affordable option.
