The Portable gaming devices today are very limited; the Android gaming are taking shape but it still a long way to go before Android can provide a satisfying gaming experience. The old PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS has already outlived their life span, and their hardware specifications are no longer valid for today’s standard. This cause a big gap in the portable gaming market.
Say hello, to the PGS Portable Gaming System, which looks like Nintendo’s 3DS, but packs a fully fledged PC in inside with an Intel X7 Z8750 mobile CPU and contains a 1440p OLED screen.
The PGS is designed to run both the desktop version of Windows 10 and Android games with natively 720p resolution with 30fps, which is good enough for a system with a mobile Intel GPU.
The PGS can be used as a mini desktop with a wireless mouse and keyboard. Also, the game can play using its integrated DPAD, analog sticks, and all other basic controller buttons for portable game streaming from a PS4, Xbox One or PC.
The PGS is running a Kickstarter campaign where it cost $230 for the first batch and $280 afterward. There is a higher-end version available with higher storage, more system memory, and a more capacity battery. Full specifications can be found on the device’s Kickstarter page.
At this time the PGS is expected to ship to backers in March 2017, with a global release later in that month. The company is also planning to build an Apollo lake variant of PGS in September 2017 which will offer higher levels of performance.
