Next Level of Gaming
Last year, Amazon made an announcement that it would soon be entering the gaming fray with a bang. Enter Luna, a new cloud gaming service from the e-commerce giant.
The allure lies in Luna's lack of barriers to entry. There's no need to purchase an expensive console for hundreds of dollars upfront, and no time-consuming downloads or updates. All you need is a solid wireless connection, some sort of screen, and a subscription. Simply sign up, stream your favorite games right to your devices, and seamlessly switch between them thanks to the cloud.
Luna is only available by invitation at the moment, which likely means gamers and serious Twitch users are the first to gain access. (You can try to land an invite by filling out the request form here).
Here's the lowdown on Luna's price, availability, and specs. Keep scrolling for an overview of how cloud gaming works, what makes Luna stand out from other services, and how to ensure your internet connection is prepped and primed for this new-age gaming service.
