Further Reading The Asus ROG Ally beats the Steam Deck at all however the most essential things A couple of weeks back, we heard the first reports about Lenovo's Legion Go, the company's prepared answer to handheld PC gaming machines like the Steam Deck and ROG Ally (not to discuss the upcoming Ayaneo Kun). Now, the very first images of the gadget (via Windows Report) show a minimum of one major function that need to set it apart from that competitors: Switch-style removable controllers.
The Legion Go would not be the extremely first portable PC gaming gadget with removable controllers; the crowd-funded OneXplayer sported a comparable design in 2015, for instance. But couple of other PC-based portables have actually similarly simulated the Switch Joy-cons in their ability to move smoothly off from the main screen of the system for removed play.
Integrated with a nice, broad kickstand displayed in the dripped images, you must have the ability to offer your arms a rest by setting the bulky-looking Legion Go's screen on a tabletop. The slide-off controls also suggest you don't require to purchase and/or drag out a separate controller when docking the device to a TV or screen (which we presume will be a main use case of the device's 2 USB-C ports). And entirely detachable controls for each hand means you can keep your hands as far apart as you desire while you hold each "half-controller" individually (among our favorite distinct usage cases on the Switch).
From the images, the Legion Go controllers add four side buttons and four rear buttons to the now-standard set of dual analog sticks, d-pad, face buttons, and shoulder buttons. The right controller also sports the device's only touchpad (below 2 on the Steam Deck however up from no on the ROG Ally), plus what looks like a semi-hidden scroll wheel tucked just listed below the shoulder buttons. The Legion Go also reportedly sports an 8-inch diagonal screen, which is 1 inch larger than Valve's and ROG's devices.
