Xbox Cloud Gaming joins Nvidia GeForce Now, on the upcoming handheld console created by Tencent and Logitech G. This console is designed to host multiple cloud gaming services.
Tencent and Logitech G announce a partnership. This will see the companies collaborate on a handheld console that is similar to the Steam Deck but can host multiple cloud gaming services. Both companies are currently collaborating with the Nvidia GeForce Now, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Logitech G teams for the upcoming project.
Tencent and Logitech unveil cloud gaming consoles for handheld devices
“Logitech G’s leadership in PC and console gaming gear make them an ideal partner to help us realize the vision of bringing a better gaming experience to gamers around the globe,” Tencent Games Smart Solution Innovation Lab’s general manager Daniel Wu said. “Today marks the start of a new opportunity for our companies to further push the frontiers of gaming devices.”
Tencent and Logitech G are collaborating to create a handheld console that will “deliver on gaming from the cloud’s exciting promise.” Logitech G’s expertise in console and PC gaming equipment has been leveraged by the companies to create a partnership that will use the power of cloud computing’s install-less technology. This will allow AAA games to be available to all players, regardless of which service they choose.
“As one of the leading global platforms for game development, publishing, and operations, Tencent Games has been at the forefront of innovation and it’s why we partnered with them,” Ujesh Desai, general manager of Logitech G said. “As someone that grew up playing video games, the idea of being able to stream and play AAA games almost anywhere is super exciting, and we can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”
One thing is certain: gaming is gaining the same popularity as TV and movies with their streaming services. Microsoft and Samsung announced a partnership recently that allows Xbox Cloud Gaming to access directly from any 2022 Samsung TV’s dashboard. Microsoft stated earlier this week that Xbox Cloud Gaming’s popularity has increased by 1,800% over the past year. It makes sense that more companies are taking advantage of the technology’s benefits.
