Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service has just launched early access, and currently, the library consists of 50 titles. You won’t need a high-powered PC to use this service, just a high-speed internet connection, or to be more specific, at least 10Mbps for 1080p gaming and 35Mbps for 4K gaming. It’s currently compatible with Windows 10 PCs, macOS 10.13+ devices, as well as FireTV (Fire TV Stick – 2nd gen, Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Cube – 2nd gen). Sign up here.
For those who don’t want to install software, just open up the Chrome browser on PC / Mac and Safari on iPhone or iPad. Aside from keyboard and mouse, early access users will get the chance to purchase a dedicated Luna controller. Or, you can just use an Xbox One / DualShock 4 controller to play. How much does it cost? Well, for early access users are only required to pay $5.99 per month with support for two devices. In the near future, additional channels will be added, enabling you to subscribe to favorited game publishers.
