Handheld Gaming Is Making A Comeback!

Handhelds Are The Future Of Gaming
Subscribe: bit.ly/Sub_to_TheGamer
The new Alienware UFO that Dell unveiled at CES 2020 turned plenty of heads. It looks like the lovechild of a gaming PC and a Nintendo Switch. It has all the features of the Nintendo Switch, but it plays PC games as opposed to Switch games. No doubt, it’s one of the most unique UMPCs (ultra-mobile PC) that we’ve ever seen. Most UMPCs aren’t designed for gaming, but the Alienware UFO sure is. It comes with an 8-inch 1200p touchscreen, an Intel Core i5 CPU and integrated Intel graphics. It’s not perfect for gaming, but there’s definitely a lot to like in that package.
It’s not the first gaming UMPC of its kind though. The Razer Edge and GPD Win both had the same idea, albeit with much worse execution. The Razer Edge was released in 2013 and advertised as a gaming tablet, but it was more of a gaming UMPC than anything else. It was versatile like the Switch, capable of being played in many different ways. The GPD Win and GPD Win 2 were both less technologically impressive as they were more designed for retro games and emulation. One thing’s for sure, none of these innovative handheld devices would be possible without Nintendo.
There’s more to why handheld gaming is making a comeback than just that so enjoy the video, let me know if you’d like to get an Alienware UFO in the comments section below and don’t forget to subscribe to TheGamer for more gaming content.

    Long battery life thin and light laptops with will likely enable the mass production of the correct chips a gaming handheld needs. Along with said chips being 5nm or lower for good proformance.

    Dude, you got some misses here. You overstated GPD pricing, and missed coming and existing alternatives (like the Win Max, One GX1, One GX1 Pro, and Aya Neo- three of which are already out and have notably better specs than the Win 2, and with the Aya Neo and GX1 Pro having comparable (if not identical, since they're running alightly weaker AMD chips with better drivers) specs to the UFO Concept, much like the Win 3). Sure, they're expensive, but you won't find equivalent laptops for less. And the Aya Neo is likely not going to actually be very expensive. Overall though, nice job highlighting a cool developing market!

      Its kind of hard to say that since these devices are/will be capable of emulating switch games, resulting in them having game libraries that are larger than the switch. This library would be including almost every console generation, excluding the original xbox, as well as a large portion of virtual reality titles. I will admit that the prices will be alot higher than the switch, but these devices will also have a longer lifespan than the switch for supported games and software. Tl;Dr: these devices will eventually overtake the switch in popularity when their specific niche becomes more mainstream.

    Don't think any of these alternatives will survive or make a big splash if their battery life isn't at least as good as the Switch and I'm a bit worried about the UFO's size. The Switch is already uncomfortable for prolonged periods of playing, I can only image such a big beast will be more tiresome quicker

    If it's $1000 it will never take off, if dell wants this thing to be a success they'll make the price $499 or less considering it's less powerful than an xbox or ps5 it probably should be $399 to compete with the switch

      Multiple devices have existed before the switch that do the exact thing the switch does, so the switch is technically a copy of other devices.

    If you can't upgrade or built it by yourself it then is not a pc,it is a console. A super-console at best but still a console.
