The Switch from Nintendo has long dominated the handheld gaming market. However, more potent mobile gaming systems have recently become available, with some, like the Steam Deck, even being able to run AAA games. The world's largest manufacturer of computer accessories, Logitech, revealed in August of this year that it would release its own handheld gaming system in partnership with Tencent.
