Tencent and Logitech to create a cloud gaming handheld!

For those who don't know yet, Logitech G is a gaming-focused wing of the PC and peripheral maker. They're the ones that make the "Pro" or "Esports" level products of the company. On the other hand, Tencent is a conglomerate of Gaming companies that focuses on mobile platforms.

Both gaming firms are in discussions with the teams behind Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now, implying that these services will be supported out of the box. They will enable gamers to play AAA titles while outside their homes.

However, the announcement only mentioned cloud gaming, so it's unclear whether any games will be able to run on the device itself. Unlike Steam Deck or Switch which can run games locally, this will only be focused on streaming games.

Earlier this year, users of the r/SteamDeck in the Reddit forum came across a 2020 patent application by Tencent that features renders of a portable "PC Console." Although take things with a grain of salt as this may not be connected.

We might also see a 5G chipset in it since cloud gaming relies on a fast and stable internet connection.

What do you guys think?
