Amazon’s Luna game streaming service launches early access with 50 games for $5.99/month

Invitations for early access to Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service have started rolling out to select customers. Check your inbox for an invitation if you requested early access, but it does seem like only a small portion of requests have been fullfilled. The service has launched with 50 games in the Luna+ Channel for an early-access price of $5.99. Games include Control, Metro: Exodus, Grid, The Surge 1 & 2, Sonic Mania, several SteamWorld games, and much more. Additional channels, such as a Ubisoft channel, each with their own set of games and subscription will eventually be available through the service, but they’re not available yet. It doesn’t seem like the new Luna controller has shipped yet, but some have reported being able to order one with their early access invitation.
