Lenovo has detailed in a press release that it has attempted to avoid issues with controller drift by implementing detachable ‘hall effect‘ controllers with “no joystick drift and minimal dead zones that maximise responsiveness and accuracy”. There’s hope this means an easier time with device maintenance and care.

The entire portable experience will be supported by Legion Space, which helps you sort and organise your games across multiple storefronts – including Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Xbox Game Pass. Notably, the device will come packaged with three months of complimentary membership for Xbox Game Pass.

Alongside the reveal of the Lenovo Legion Go, Lenovo also announced an array of other accessories during IFA 2023, including the Legion E510 RGB in-ear gaming earbuds, the new Lenovo Legion 9i gaming laptop, the new ThinkVision 3D monitor, and the Lenovo Legion Glasses – a wearable virtual monitor supported by Micro OLED tech.
