Get a 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube for just $39.99 while they last

Woot just put up the refurbished 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube for $39.99 with free shipping for Prime members. This price beats the last time Woot offered the 2019 Fire TV Cube by $5 and is the lowest price it has ever been. The 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube is still a fantastic device that outperforms every Fire TV model, except the new 3rd-gen Fire TV Cube, which is currently on sale for $124.99. Included with this bundle is everything it would have come with new, which are the latest Alexa voice remote, an Ethernet adapter, an IR blaster, and a power adapter. There is absolutely no beating this device at this price for the best bang for your buck when it comes to Fire TV performance and capabilities.

Amazon’s GM of Luna cloud gaming leaves to join Netlfix Gaming

The General Manager of Amazon Luna, George Tsipolitis, has left Amazon after nine years with the company. According to his recently updated LinkedIn profile, he is joining Netflix as its Senior Director of Engineering for Gaming. While Amazon just launched Luna in more countries a couple of weeks ago and insists it’s still fully behind the cloud gaming service, the recent layoffs that heavily affected the Luna team, the recent loss of many games, and now the loss of the service’s GM has to make you wonder if the service will be around much longer.

Here are the Free Amazon Luna games for Prime members this month

Amazon has refreshed the list of free games that Prime members can play on its Luna cloud gaming service. For the month of April, those with a Prime subscription can play Yakuza Kiwami 2, Horizon Chase Turbo, The Adventure Pals, and The Jackbox Games Party Pack 3. You just need a compatible device, like a Fire TV, phone, tablet, or computer to start streaming these games for free. Of course, having a gamepad like the Luna controller, which is currently on sale for $49.99, will make for the best gaming experience, but you can also use your phone as a controller. New games being added to Luna for paid subscribers of the Luna+ channel include Batman™: Arkham Knight, LEGO DC Super-Villains, Batora: Lost Haven, Endzone: A World Apart, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning.

Fire TVs are back at their lowest prices — 4K Max for $34.99, Cube for $124.99, and more

Amazon just kicked off another sale on Fire TV devices. The best deal of the bunch is the Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $34.99, which matches its lowest price ever and gives you a serious amount of power for a great price. If you want more power the Fire TV Cube is $124.99 which is also its lowest price ever. Unfortunately, deals this time around on the 1080p Fire TV Sticks aren’t as good. The Fire TV Stick is $24.99 and the Fire TV Stick Lite is $19.99. That’s not a bad price if you need one and can’t wait for a better deal, but it’s still pretty far from their lowest historical prices of $16.99 and $11.99, respectively. The last deals worth mentioning are in Amazon’s Backup Day sale where you can score some great prices on hard drives, SSDs, NASs, memory cards, flash drives, and more.
