Amazon announces new Luna cloud gaming service for Fire TV

At their annual hardware event today, Amazon revealed their new Luna cloud gaming service. Not much is known about the service, but it will be available on Fire TVs, PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Android phones. The service will cost $5.99/month during an introductory early access period, which you can request to be a part of now. Over 100 games will be available and stream at up to 4K and 60fps to up to two devices simultaneously.

The Luna service will consist of various gaming channels which, form what it sounds like, will each have different bundles of games available. Publishers, like Ubisoft, will have individual channels for their own games and there will also be various genre channels, as well as a Luna Plus channel. There will also be Twitch integration that allows customers to jump directly into a gaming session from a Twitch stream within the Luna service.

Gaming with Luna will be possible through a mouse and keyboard or through a Bluetooth controller. Amazon will be released a first-party Luna Controller that will cost $49.99 and feature Alexa voice capabilities.
