British tablet specialist, Linx has launched Vision – a truly game-changing device. Designed with direct input from the gaming community, the Linx Vision is the world’s first mobile gaming device to allow for XBOX One game streaming, plus PC gaming on the go, simple in-game recording/sharing, and full Windows 10 productivity. All for just £149.
At its heart a powerful 8in Windows 10 tablet, the Linx Vision adds a detachable, approved XBOX controller dock, full PC gaming compatibility, plus a shortcut button for in-game recording.
Vision was developed following focus-group feedback from gamers of all ages, as Linx product manager, Nicolò Lettieri, explains: “The most popular demands were for a controller – as touch-screen controls for tablet games were universally seen as poor; quick in-game recording that could be easily shared online; seamless XBOX streaming, plus the ability to play the full version of PC games – especially Minecraft – on the go”.
