Logitech unveiled its new console device ‘Logitech G Cloud’ via its official website and YouTube on the 21st. The device is a portable console like the Nintendo Switch and a Steam deck, and was created in collaboration with Tencent. Unlike previous devices, it is a cloud-based console where you can enjoy games through Nvidia GeForce Now, Xbox Game Pass, Steam Link, etc., rather than installing and running the game directly.

According to the published specifications, the overall size is smaller than the Steam deck and the weight is very light at 463g, but it is slightly larger and heavier than the Switch OLED. It has a 7-inch screen that supports a frequency of 60Hz and a multi-touch screen, and a controller with a 6-axis sensor, haptic feedback and an ambient light sensor. The operating system is Android 11, and it has a battery that can play games for up to 12 hours. The basic capacity is 64 GB, and a micro SD expansion slot is provided. Although it is a cloud based game, it does not have a system that connects to a network other than Wi-Fi.

The release date is October 18 in North America, and the price is $350 (about 490,000 Korean Won). You can buy it for $300 (about 420,000 Korean Won), which is a discount of 50 dollars when you pre-order. An official release date has yet to be announced.
