ASUS announced today that its ROG Ally portable gaming computer will go on sale in the UK starting on June 13. Preorders will begin today, May 11. The device will cost £699, or about $882.
Nintendo helped to make portable, tablet-like gaming consoles popular with its Switch, and then Valve entered the market with its high-end Steam Deck. The ROG Ally, though more expensive than the top $649 Steam Deck SKU, boasts some impressive specs. It’ll also give players the ability to officially access games from outside of the Steam ecosystem on-the-go.
This includes Xbox Game Pass on PC. In fact, the ROG Ally will come with three months of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription service.
Here are the machine’s full specs:
