Xbox Handheld Announced: Logitech G Cloud with Game Pass

Cloud gaming will now be available in more places: With the new Xbox handheld from Logitech and Microsoft.

As an Xbox Game Pass via the Steam Deck has only been possible to a limited extent so far, the Logitech G Cloud handheld closes this gap and now effectively makes Cloud Gaming possible on the go. However, this service also comes at a price.

Yesterday, Microsoft and Logitech officially announced the release of the G Cloud handheld gaming console. The new Xbox handheld is scheduled to be released as early as October 18th, 2022 in Canada and the U.S.. However, gamers will also have to spent a couple of bucks for this pleasure: The new handheld is expected to cost $349.99. Players in the U.S. and Canada are expected to get the handheld at the beginning for $299.99.
