The Logitech G Cloud is portable handheld with controllers fastened to the side, not unlike a Nintendo Switch. But unlike the Switch or the Steam Deck, this isn't made to play big AAA games locally.

The G Cloud is essentially a quick-start device for consumers who want to try playing games on the cloud. The G Cloud is a smartphone/tablet that packs in the most pertinent game streaming apps like Xbox Cloud Gaming and NVIDIA GeForce Now into a portable screen-and-controller handheld. Pre-orders are up for $299, but the base MSRP retail cost will be $349, which is more than a base Nintendo Switch. The device will ship to North America first on October 17.

"How do we really design something that was cloud-first?"

The Logitech G CLOUD Gaming Handheld enables gamers to play anywhere with Wi-Fi. Key features include:

  • Comfortable Play All Day - With a 12+ hour battery life and weight of only 463g, players can enjoy extended gaming sessions.
  • Full HD - The large 7-inch full 1080p HD touchscreen touts a 60Hz refresh rate and a full-screen 16:9 gaming experience that is unique to handhelds.
  • Precision Gaming Controls - Performance and feedback rival the best controllers with haptics, gyroscope, and remappable controls.

The device is ultra-thin and lightweight, clocking in at 1 pound, and boasts a 12-hour battery life. It features a 7-inch 1080p 60Hz display and is described as a fully-functioning tablet that runs Android 11 and connects directly to the Google Play Store for dedicated mobile game play and multimedia. Under the hood, the G Cloud sports a Snapdragon 720G SoC with an 8-core CPU clocked at 2.3GHz.

Another big bonus of the G Cloud is that it will also support remote play between dedicated platforms and clients like Xbox consoles and PCs running Steam (Steam cloud play is also supported).

Sony's own PlayStation Plus integration was noticeably absent at the showcase, but it should technically be compatible because users can download the PS App via the Google Play Store. Logitech specifically teamed up with Microsoft and NVIDIA on the G Cloud.
