Google Stadia showed its rivals the way to create a good cloud gaming platform, and although the Mountain View company has decided to end its game streaming service, today we have several excellent alternatives such as Xbox Cloud and Nvidia GeForce Now.
In this sense, one of the best ways to play on these platforms is through a handheld console like the Steam Deck, whose success has led other manufacturers to introduce their own Android consoles, such as Logitech G Cloud and Razer Edge 5G.
However, the main drawback of these consoles lies in their high price, but that is about to change soon. Chinese company Abxylute is going to launch an Android console compatible with Xbox, GeForce Now, and Steam that will cost less than 185 USD.
Introducing the Abxylute Cloud Gaming Console
The Abxylute Cloud Gaming Console is an Android-based handheld console featuring a 7-inch LCD touchscreen with 1080p resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate, which you can see in action in the promotional video below.
Regarding the rest of this Android console’s specifications, the manufacturer has not revealed certain important details, such as the processor it will use, but has confirmed that it will be capable of achieving a stable rate of 60 frames in most games.
What has been revealed is that the Abxylute Cloud Gaming Console will have a large 5,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging, promising eight hours of battery life, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD card slot, and two stereo speakers.
Concerning software, it should be noted that this console is compatible with the Google Play Store, from which you can install apps and games, with the main cloud gaming streaming services such as Xbox Cloud, GeForce Now, and Amazon Luna, and even with Steam Link, allowing you to wirelessly connect the console to your PC and play all the games in your Steam library.
Furthermore, for the creation of the Abxylute Cloud Gaming Console, this unknown Asian company has had the support of Tencent, the Chinese gaming giant, which has developed the interface, native applications, and provided support.
Abxylute has not yet revealed the release date for its Android cloud gaming console but has confirmed that it will initially be marketed through a crowdfunding campaign for a price of 185 dollars, and later arrive in stores for a cost of 230 dollars.
