What you need to know

  • The Razer Edge gaming handheld has launched at last, and a little surprisingly, in European markets. 
  • Only the Wi-Fi model is available to order. 
  • Will cost £450 in the UK and €500 in mainland Europe. 

It doesn't seem like Razer goes very long without launching a new product but this one took me a little by surprise. The Razer Edge gaming handheld is now available to order in Europe, albeit only in Wi-Fi form. 

I say I'm surprised because the last time I asked Razer about the Edge coming here I was told there were no current plans. I guess those plans changed! But needless to say, nobody was really expecting it. 

If you looked on in envy at Americans having all the fun, though, you can now go and order yourself a Razer Edge which includes the 'tablet' part and the most excellent Razer Kishi V2 Pro controller. If you're in the UK you'll need to part with £450, elsewhere in Europe that becomes €500.

The Razer Edge is the second Android-based gaming handheld to make it to these shores recently, following the Logitech G Cloud. It's an impressive device even purely considering the hardware, even if I wish that Razer had just kept making phones instead of going down this route. 

The obvious interest for us here is cloud gaming. Razer has its own, recently updated application that takes a central role, but you're perfectly at home using this with services like Xbox Game Pass, NVIDIA GeForce Now and Amazon Luna. As it's based on Android you can also play native games like Genshin Impact, Call of Duty Mobile and Diablo Immortal, too. 

In our Razer Edge review, Zachary Boddy heaped much praise on the handheld, despite there being some flaws. But then, what piece of hardware doesn't have flaws? One of the biggest is arguably the price, with the Edge costing about £100 more than the Logitech G Cloud. It would have been nice if Razer had absorbed some of the cost of the Kishi controller instead of seemingly tagging it on. 

It is impressive though and one of our biggest peeves was that it was only available in the United States. That much has ended though, so if you've been longing for one, get your order on now.
