Amazon has announced a new Cloud Steaming service for gamers, which will be available for Fire TV, PC, Mac, iPhone, IPad and Android soon. The streaming subscription will be priced at $5.99, and the current introductory service is $49.99, which is significantly lower than some other options. Amazon has highlighted a business goal of being accessible across a wide range of different platforms, showing their intention to grow. Does this highlight a possibility that we could see this service becoming available on Playstation, Xbox or Switch in the future? To confirm both a PlayStation and Xbox Controllers can be used on the Luna service. Games on Luna will stream at up to 4K / 60fps. Luna with be releasing with 100 games at launch with titles like Resident Evil 7, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Abzu, GRID, A Plagues Tale and many more. Although Luna called out specific partnership with Ubisoft with a Publisher Specific Channel. What’s not certain currently, is if you want to play the latest Ubisoft games, you need to pay an additional cost/sub. One other point that we spotted that we really like is the fact that one subscription at the above price will allow up to two devices to play at the same time.

With the poor reception of the Google Stadia, a streaming platform much similar to the Luna, it comes as no surprise that the overall reception of the device is not too positive. The problem with the Luna is that there seems to be a lot of hidden costs that might not be clear right now. For example, we know that there are going to be ‘other channels’ that contain games that you can subscribe too. The question then becomes the cost of these. Additionally, the library of games on these streaming services are too small compared to some of the competition. For example, Xbox Games Pass, at $9.99 a month will be offering brand new Microsoft releases and a large library of games at a fixed price, making it much more attractive, especially with Microsoft recent acquisition of Bethesda.
