Amazon presents Luna, the new cloud service against Google Stadia (and it already looks like a bomb)

All Game News

Amazon enters the ever growing crowd of cloud gaming services with a straight leg, surprisingly announcing the new platform moon.

Sony has PlayStation Now, limited to consoles and PC for now; Microsoft has launched the late Project xCloud within the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate even on phones a few days ago; Google, with Stadia, however, continues to trudge. However, the competition does not scare the e-commerce giant, which enters the world of goods with a straight leg cloud gaming services with the already promising platform Amazon Moon.

Luna, which for the moment will only be available in the United States (for services like these, a limited running-in period is always needed), will have a starting price of $5.99 per monthand will allow access to a catalog of more than 100 games in the cloud that can be played simultaneously on up to two devices. The goal, for some titles, is to reach 4K resolution and 60 frames per second, but it will not be the standard.

Among the games already announced for the debut of Luna we find:

  • Control
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • The Surge 2
  • Grid
  • Abzu
  • A Plague Tale: Innocence
  • Resident Evil 7

These video games already available on other platforms will be joined by some new important and awaited productions. Ubisoft has indeed announced that it has partnered with Luna (as already done with Stadia in the past), and which will bring titles such as Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Far Cry 6 and Immortals: Fenyx Rising.

Initially, Amazon’s game streaming service will be accessible on PC, MacOS, Fire TV Stick, iPad, and only later will it arrive on other iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. A controller for the service was also announced, which will retail for $49.99.
