Logitech just released the G Cloud, an ambitious streaming handheld console

The Steam Deck lets you play and stream games on the go for a reasonable price point. 

Unfortunately, because it's not always available, companies such as Logitech have come up with alternatives.

In Logitech's case, it's going to release the G Cloud, which is an Android-based device that is a lot smaller compared to the Steam Deck.

The G Cloud is a streaming console with extended battery life, a 7-inch touchscreen with built-in controls, a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as a controller layout similar to the Xbox. 

Logitech and Microsoft want to give users a simple alternative that takes out all of the fuss so that you keep on throwing money for a Game Pass subscription.

At $300 ($350 after October 17), the G Cloud isn't cheap but it's not expensive either, so it'll be interesting to see how well it will sell once it's actually available.
