After several months in early access, Amazon’s Luna game streaming service will be made available to all Prime members starting June 21.
“For a limited time, Prime members can access games on Amazon Luna without requesting an invite for early access,” Amazon’s Luna website explains. “Start a Luna+ 7-day free trial to play action, adventure, platformer, indie, shooter, RPG, racing, and classic games – and we’re always adding more.”
Amazon announced Luna in September 2020 and then made it available by invite-only in early access in October. Brad and I have tried the service, and it’s honestly really well done, the only potential downside being a limited library, at least at the time. But the big advantage here is availability: Luna Windows, Mac, Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, and Android. And you can bring your own controller or use Amazon’s Luna controller, which is temporarily 30 percent off.
Today, Luna streams games at 1080p/60 fps, but Amazon says that 4K support is coming soon for select titles. The service is available in the mainland US, meaning not in Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. territories, and it costs $5.99 per month for now, though I suspect the cost will go up as it exits preview.
