The Logitech G Cloud streaming handheld has launched pre-orders in the UK and Europe today, with a release date scheduled for May 23. That's excellent news for Game Pass aficionados on this side of the pond, especially considering the US has had its hands on the device since October. 

The portable player keeps all your Game Pass titles close to hand (provided you have an internet connection), with a 7-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 720G processor, and 12 hour battery life to keep everything running smooth as well. Pre-orders have landed at £329.99 / €359 (Amazon is your best bet in the UK right now), so this isn't a cheap endeavour. However, as we said in our Logitech G Cloud review, this is one for the mobile players who don't want to splash out on a far more expensive gaming phone for boosted streaming performance.

The system comes pre-loaded with Xbox Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now, Steam Link, and the standard Xbox app. That means you're covered for a range of scenarios, covering everything from Microsoft's magic subscription to your own Valve library. With a crisp display, sharp controls, and a full control scheme all baked into an ergonomic chassis, this is one for the power users.

Should you buy the Logitech G Cloud?

The Logitech G Cloud is the kind of device that makes you want to pick up and play.

Logitech G Cloud Review

That £329.99 price point is a little familiar. If you're in the market for a handheld console, you've got two other options vying for your attention; the Nintendo Switch OLED at £309.99 and the Steam Deck at £349. If you're considering the former, the decision is easy - everything comes down to the games. It should come as no surprise that the G Cloud won't be running any Nintendo first party titles, so if you're here for the Mario hype we'd still recommend browsing the latest Nintendo Switch deals. 

The difficulty comes from the Steam Deck. While, at first glance, the slightly more expensive Valve option looks like the better buy (you don't need an internet connection to play), there are a few considerations. The G Cloud is far easier to wrap smaller hands around, and holds a far more portable form factor. It also offers a better resolution display and is the only option for those looking to keep their Google Play titles in-hand as well. 

It's also worth noting that the Asus ROG Ally is on the horizon, albeit with a boosted $699.99 / £699.99 price point. If you're serious about jumping onto the emerging handheld PC hype train, the newest model is going to blow the others out the water. 

We're also rounding up all the best gaming tablets and the best gaming laptops for more portable play. Or, check out the best mobile controllers if you're after a cheaper entry point for mobile cloud gaming.
