Steam Gaming in your Hands?!

I’ve been sent a very interesting press release for those of you PC gamers who would love to take Steam with you on the go.

One-Netbook Announces the Launch of ONE XPLAYER on Indiegogo, a  high-performance handheld game console with a Win 10 System, designed to provide players with a more flexible, portable, and space-free handheld PC gaming experience, with its cutting-edge hardware and ergonomic design.

Its an intriguing idea, a handheld games console designed to play AAA PC-Steam games on the move 

The new console is already turning heads, winning the 2020 Intel Innovation Award at the CTE CEO Summit 2021. 

Handheld PC Console

The aim of the ONE XPLAYER is to hardcore gamers an unparalleled gaming entertainment with its powerful specs. At the heart of ONE XPLAYER is Intel’s newest model Core i7-1185G7, with this cutting-edge processor allowing the console to handle AAA titles with ease. 

The console features an 8.4-inch Full-HD IPS Display with 2560 x 1600 resolution and 358 ppi pixel density should bring impressive graphics and taking the handheld gaming experience to a new level.

The top-grade 3D speaker embedded in the front of the console means AAA soundtracks and sound effects are crisp and impactful. 

There is a choice of three ROM sizes – 2TB, 1TB and 500GB – to allow for numerous games to be stored in the console at the same time. 

Ultimate Gaming Experience?

This is certainly an ambitious product designed to set players free from gaming chairs and provide them with uncompromised gaming experience anywhere they go.  

The console will feature a bracket on the back, which provides firm and stable support for the console when needed. Full-screen games will have no black border in ONE XPLAYER and it is possible to see the screen from any angle.

Controls are going to be very important on a device like this, with the company claiming ONE XPLAYER’s linear triggers will bring players a completely different level of experience in shooting or sports games. Fast-action games such as NBA 2K21 benefit from the linear triggers, which could effectively help gamers up their gameplay. 

They’ve taken inspiration from Xbox’s ergonomically comfortable controllers, aiming to match and even exceed the user experience on the controllers with the optimized position and arcs of buttons to prevent fingers from cramping after extended playtime. The arrangement and radian of ABXY keys is specifically designed to fit into gamers’ palm. 

ONE XPLAYER as a next-generation console delivers flawless gaming experiences to players under various scenarios. ONE XPLAYER has been supported by the leading game publisher Tencent Games during the process of product development and marketing.
