In addition to PC accessories, Logitech is developing a handheld cloud gaming system.
The gadget, which will launch later this year, is being developed by the company’s Logitech G brand in collaboration with Tencent Games in China.

Despite the fact that you can already do this on a laptop or smartphone, it appears that Logitech sees a market opportunity in the rising but still niche sector of cloud gaming.
