Cloudy with a Chance of Games

Today during the ROG 3 announcement which, is designed for gaming on the go it was announced that 3 months of Stadia Pro will be bundled with the phone. Stadia has partnered with ROG in regards to mobile phones. The full presentation is below.

The full details of the phone can be found here and there are various attachments to the phone. There is a clip available for the phone and it was made with Stadia in mind

The ROG Gaming Clip holds your phone in landscape mode and clips onto an Xbox, PlayStation, or Stadia controller. The variable clip is compatible with any phone that’s between 69mm and 80mm wide, including the ROG Phone 3, and can be adjusted to the optimal viewing angle for gaming.

The phone also comes with a 5G, cooler and a 144mhz display.

The final reckoning in many of today’s games comes down to split-second decisions between victory and defeat, so having a fast and reliable network connection is vital. The ROG Phone 3’s sub-6 5G support on compatible mobile networks enables higher bandwidth for fast downloads and lower latency to ensure your shots are communicated to the server as quickly as possible.

Running games at 144FPS generates a lot more heat than standard 60FPS gaming. To address this challenge, we designed a new GameCool 3 cooling system that uses a heatsink that’s six times larger than the one found in the previous ROG Phone. This larger heatsink cools both the Snapdragon processor and the 5G modem so your phone won’t throttle back when the action heats up.

The GameCool design uses a layered sandwich design that stacks different cooling elements to effectively distribute and dissipate heat from the device’s internal components. From the large graphite film directly underneath the screen, to the 3D vapor-chamber design and heatsink, and even an integrated vent on the back cover, heat has nowhere to go but out in the ROG Phone 3.

If you’re planning lengthy gaming sessions at 144Hz, you may want to consider attaching our redesigned AeroActive Cooler 3. This clip-on accessory delivers up to 4° C lower surface temperatures by adding focused airflow to the Snapdragon application processor and 5G modem. The integrated fan also keeps your fingers cooler for those marathon Call of Duty: Mobile sessions. It also features a built-in kickstand for those times when you’re gaming with an external controller such as the ROG Kunai Gamepad.

I have been playing since the Commodore 64 days and have basically played every console going since then including the Ouya! I have been a fan of cloud gaming since the Onlive days and that was my favorite platform. Cloud gaming will revolutionize how we play games going forward and it is just a matter of time when it takes off.
