Introduced last month and launching May 11, the ROG Ally is a portable Windows 11 gaming device that’s getting a lot of buzz. Xbox’s Jeff Rubenstein took it for a spin and re-discovered “that childlike wonder” of playing games anywhere. In a post on Xbox Wire, Rubenstein focuses on Game Pass and how the Ally differentiates itself from other handheld gaming devices: by running the full version of Windows 11. “As soon as I signed in, the ROG Ally seamlessly detected that I’m a Game Pass Ultimate member, and even automatically connected to my home Wi-Fi – it’s the little things! Of course, it’s the big things too, like access to all the games I’ve previously purchased from the Windows Store, seamlessly syncing my progress thanks to Xbox cloud saving, and access to Steam, Epic, Battle.net, Ubisoft+, EA Play and much, much more. If your gaming PC can play it, the ROG Ally probably can too.”
