It could be given the right circumstances but if it’s only cloud gaming needing wifi and still $300 when Switch can already beat that price and play with its own internal hardware? What’s the point? Not to mention Steam Deck starts not much higher.Cloud gaming is not appealing in anyway
Imagine being forced to show that thing off and of course all these people feel like they HAVE to play with it and praise it to his faceFuck me, the cringe. That’s embarrassing Phil. No way to polish this turd I’m afraid. Poor guy if he’s telling the truth though, imagine working at the place that manufactures the Surface and they ship you off with some Logitech POS.
You just described every modern mobile phone on the market. The bonus - people already have those.
But yeh, really on to something.
I like the idea, not the price or size. If someone can figure a way to do this with less expensive hardware and in a form factor that's more portable in a traditional sense, it could work. This thing would take up more space than a controller attachment for a phone. Something more PSP-GO esque in nature (preferably even a bit thinner with an edge-to-edge screen that's as large as possible) and you'd really have something.
They already have, its called a backbone and your cellphone and its only an additional 60 dollars
The win would be the built in gaming controls with no need for controller attachments or the use of touch. Separating battery usage from their phone might be a win for some users as well.
Not all that pocket-able though. Something the size of a smartphone would be easier to carry. Most people have enough pockets to carry two cell phone sized devices without issue. Once you get switch size it isn't really that portable without it being really obvious.
- Having a sleek pockatable device
- Having in built gaming controls
Also this device only has a 6000MaH battery, it's not that big a leap over what you will find in some phones, especially those geared towards gamers.
Ridiculous device, ridiculous price. It offers nothing but Phil Spencer said to like it so here we are.
Especially when phones are getting bigger, not smaller. Well, all the good phones that is.I feel like the days of pocket sized portables are over. If you aren’t willing to play on your phone with touch screen controls you have to make peace with the fact that you will need a bag to carry a device in
It's not like Microsoft made the thing, they're just supporting it... for all we know it could actually work well for what it's been designed for, i think the price is just too high.
Does this actually run Android games too? Google Play/Amazon store stuff? I don't see that mentioned anywhere... just see Xbox, GeForce, Steam
Too close to the steam deck price. Most people would just use the phone or tablet they already own. Dont see a point to this. Would love a native device from Sony or MS. Doubt we will see one.
Wait For Starfield™.
Tell me again GAF how Xbox not trying to sell hardware?Oh right its branded as Logitech?? but they are banking on Gamepass subscriptions??? For $300??? and have the worst lineup of 1st and 2nd party exclusives????
But you can now play halo on the go. Power of the cloud????? Huh!??????
Logitech didnt deserves this as I love them as a brand.
You dont need a data plan because it only supports wifi lulzIf you guys are done with your 'bitch eating crackers', the man has said from day 1 he wants Gamepass on everything he possibly can.
Honestly this thing is worthless to me without a 5g connection, and I sure as hell wouldn't pay for a data plan just for this. Just get a backbone, or a much cheaper controller clip, and stream on the phone you already have. I literally don't know who Logitech is trying to sell this to.
Welcome back man.
The price for this device is a little high but it does provide an additional vector for playing Game pass so I can see why MS would support it.
If you really want this bullshit, save yourself $250 and get this: https://www.goretroid.com/collectio...retroid-pocket-3-handheld-retro-gaming-system
Just spend $50 more on a Steam Deck?And for the record, I don't expect this to replace my switch or anything. This is strictly about Game Pass games via cloud. I could easily see me messing with certain RPG style games like a Starfield or something when not able to get on my Series X or PC. So as to a better option for xcloud on the go, I don't exactly mind this logitech device, so that's why I'm going to buy it and give it a shot.
Seems a pointless product to me but here we are.
$300... for cloud gaming and wifi only?
Reading its also a tablet but man...I dunno. Interested to try one but not sure its worth the asking price....
Get a steam deck for just a little bit more? I'm not sure there's much of a market for this.
That's not a hot take, broseph. That is a consumer opinion.Hot takes galore I see. I don't understand why is it difficult to get - you get 1080p screen, WiFi 5Ghz. Also, SD is more expensive, plus you need to add the cost of extra memory card. The most expensive SD in Europe is 679€, double the price of this one.
I bought a cheapo Pixel 2 and a razer kishi for around $100 combined for game streaming while traveling. I’m out of town this week and this thing has been a pleasant surprise.
For $350 I’d expect an OLED screen. I’ll stick with my Pixel 2, thanks
