Finally we know everything about Cloud Logitech G, the manufacturer’s first handheld console co-developed with Tencent. As its name already indicates, bet on cloud gaming, so processing will take place on servers of different platforms. Of course, you will need to have a permanent connection to the Internet via Wi-Fi.
