Logitech G, the gaming division of the well-known manufacturer of peripherals and accessories, has announced that it is collaborating with Tencent Games to develop a portable device that will provide access to cloud gaming services.
The product is expected to launch later this year and will support the Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now platforms.
The two companies have not revealed any other details about the device. There is a website where those interested in the project can register to stay up to date.
The companies’ announcement comes after Valve launched Steam Deck, which also supports cloud gaming services.
Sony also recently announced a PlayStation 5 controller that works with iPhone smartphones. The device is called Backbone One – PlayStation Edition and costs $100. The Remote Play service allows users to stream content from the console to their cell phones.
Microsoft is also rumored to be working on a cloud gaming device.
This will be a kind of “Chromecast” for streaming video games.
At the same time, manufacturers from TV have started to announce native support for services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now.
