Lenovo Legion Go set to challenge Steam Deck and Switch

Lenovo appears to be entering the fray of portable gaming consoles, with leaked images and specifications of the rumored Lenovo Legion Go making waves online. This compact handheld device is poised to challenge the likes of the Nintendo Switch, Steam Deck, and Asus ROG Ally.

Leaked images reveal a boxy design reminiscent of the Nintendo Switch, complete with detachable controllers and an 8-inch screen. Much like the Asus ROG Ally, the Lenovo Legion Go is expected to run on Windows 11 and is powered by AMD’s new Phoenix processors. With these specifications, it is positioned to offer a seamless gaming experience for PC enthusiasts on the move. While the potential impact on Nintendo’s dominance remains uncertain, the portable gaming landscape has significantly evolved since the launch of the Nintendo Switch in 2017. The market now boasts a range of powerful handhelds, including the Steam Deck and Sony’s upcoming Project Q PS5 handheld. With competition growing, Nintendo’s renowned games and iconic intellectual properties may not be the only deciding factors for success.

  1. If the Steam Deck wasn’t able to put a dent in the Switch’s sales, even with all the hype it had surrounding it, this definitely won’t be able to either.
    Honestly, they’re not really even competing in the same space. People buy Nintendo systems for their exclusive franchises, not to have powerful hardware. It’s been this way for many years now, the Wii, DS and 3DS were also significantly weaker than their competition but ultimately ended up wiping the floor with them in the end.

    This device will be in direct competition with the Steam Deck, sure (as they’re both made for on-the-go PC gaming), but I highly doubt it’ll have any impact on the Switch.
