Earlier this month, Logitech G and Tencent Games announced that they will be bringing a cloud gaming handheld console later this year “that will combine Logitech G's expertise in hardware with Tencent Games' expertise in software services.” As per the announcement, the device will support multiple cloud gaming services, and both companies are working with the Xbox Cloud Gaming as well as Nvidia GeForce Now teams.
