What if the next version of the Legion Go skipped the screen for AR glasses instead; would you buy one?

That it what another company may be doing.

I would definitely be interested in a Legion Go minus a screen, replaced with AR glasses.

My biggest concern would be the quality of the AR glasses.

The USB-C port would still be able to connect to a monitor if wanted.

Please share your thoughts and ideas.

  • As I was about to write my comment here, I thought of the eventuality when a device has problems that need troubleshooting. For a PC Gaming Handheld, having the built-in screen is actually handy to help investigate any issues with the OS, drivers, or a conflicting app, etc., whereas the AR glasses might lose connectivity / functionality once the handset / controllers fail. After writing this and editing it once or twice, I'm unsure I'd get a gaming console without a display panel. I guess it would depend on how easy and convenient it is to repair / resolve if I can't do it myself.

  • Great points Jay. Hopefully USB-C monitors continue to mature.
