The handheld has been obtainable within the US for months, however it’s now making its technique to the UK and Europe.
The Logitech G Cloud packs a 7-inch 1080p/60Hz show in a compact type issue with built-in controls. The system helps remappable buttons, haptic suggestions and even gyroscope aiming. Logitech additionally claims 12+ hours of battery life, though we do not know if that is 12 straight hours whereas streaming video games or working native apps.

The Logitech G Cloud will likely be obtainable within the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland within the close to future.
KitGuru Says: At £199, I’d give this a shot however at £329 there’s simply no method. For just a little further, you would get a Steam Deck or an OLED Nintendo Switch.
