Google failed badly a few years ago with Stadia – and the idea wasn’t that bad. That’s what Amazon thought too, and launched Luna, its own Netflix for games: the cloud gaming service Luna. The principle is not new, because Microsoft GamePass or NVIDIA’s GeForce Now already exist.

Amazon Gaming Controller: Netflix for games
When I say Luna, I don’t mean the crazy Ravenclaw from Harry Potter, but Amazon’s cloud gaming service.
When will Amazon Luna be available in Germany? In April, Amazon’s cloud gaming service also started in Germany and there is also an enchanting ergonomic controller based on the Xbox model. It is equipped with 12 buttons, including one for voice control, because the controller can interact with other Amazon devices as well as cell phones, tablets and PCs. This makes your Fire TV remote control almost superfluous.
This diverse compatibility pays off: Start a game on your Fire TV or selected Samsung TVs and continue playing it later in bed on the tablet – your game will be paused in the cloud. As befits a modern controller, it works completely wirelessly, but can also be connected to your PC without batteries via a USB-C cable, for example.

Luna Controller App: Connect to the PC
In order for the controller to work for your cell phones and tablets, you still need the Luna Controller app, in which you set up and configure the new GamePad. The same applies to Windows and Mac users. Here you need the right drivers. However, the Luna Controller is not compatible with game consoles.
