During the special event, Amazon launched its new cloud gaming platform, called Luna. Thus, the e-commerce giant has officially jumped on the playing field to compete with Google and Microsoft.
It is currently unclear when the Luna service will be officially launched. However, Amazon says it will launch first on PC, Mac, Fire TV, iPhone and iPad (via web app). An Android version will be released at the end.
Amazon’s cloud gaming service at launch will have a preferential price of $ 5.99 / month. With some titles you can experience 4K resolution and 60fps frame rate. And of course, this service will be provided on the AWS cloud computing platform, already very famous by Amazon.
Amazon says there will be more than 100 titles available on the Luna platform. Including many popular titles such as Resident Evil 7, Control, The Surge 2. Amazon has also partnered with Ubisoft to provide new titles such as Assassins Creed Valhalla, Far Cry 6 and Immortals Fenyx Rising.
In addition, Amazon also released the Luna Controller, to support playing games on the Luna platform. This controller has built-in Alexa virtual assistant, and will be priced at $ 49.99. Amazon says the Luna Controller will connect directly to the cloud using WiFi, so that players can use the controller on many different devices.
The e-commerce giant Amazon has once shown its ambitions in the gaming industry. The first is to own the online streaming service Twitch, which is still the world’s leading game livestream platform. Amazon has also developed a number of new titles on its own, including the online shooter game Crucible.
All three tech giants Google, Microsoft, and now Amazon, have all jumped into the cloud gaming race. Show that this will be the trend of the future, when gaming devices such as PCs or consoles will no longer matter.
