Making it work on the G Cloud was an obvious and strategic choice for us,” said Jérôme Arnac, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Shadow. “With Shadow PC, G Cloud users will enjoy the freedom of having access to a powerful Windows PC on their handheld, with no closed games catalog, the possibility to use mods, enjoy non-gaming apps, and much more. We are incredibly excited that Logitech G brings a device to the market that supports the new ways of gaming, and we cannot wait to see how creative the community will be in using it.”
