    What is Amazon Luna?
    Luna is a cloud gaming service that lets you play games on compatible Fire TV, PC, and Mac devices as well as through web apps on iPhones and iPads.

    What is cloud gaming?
    Cloud gaming enables you to play games on devices you already own, without the need to purchase a gaming console or gaming PC. Games live in the cloud, so there are no lengthy downloads, installs, or updates required.

    How do I access Luna?
    Currently, early access to Luna is available exclusively by invitation.

    When can I expect to get my early access invitation?
    Early access will be issued on a rolling basis. If your invitation is granted, we will notify you via email.

    What do I need to play on Luna?
    You need a high-speed internet connection, compatible game controller or mouse and keyboard, and supported PC, Mac, Fire TV, iPhone, and iPad.

    What is Luna+?
    Luna+ game channel offers a growing library of new and favorite titles. Set up Luna profiles to play on two devices at the same time at up to 1080p/60fps. 4K coming soon for select titles.

    How long will early access pricing for Luna+ last?
    $5.99/month introductory pricing is only available during Luna early access. Your Luna+ subscription will renew at the applicable monthly subscription price after the Luna early access period is over. We will notify you at least 30 days in advance of the end of early access to ensure you are informed of the new monthly subscription price, along with information on how to manage your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time.

    What is the Ubisoft channel?
    The Ubisoft game channel will include new and favorite titles from Ubisoft, including ultimate edition versions for select titles. The Ubisoft channel will provide you access to play on one device at up to 4k resolution for select titles. Stay tuned for more news.

    Which controllers are compatible with Luna?
    You can play with the Luna Controller, Xbox One controller, DualShock 4 controller, or use a mouse and keyboard.

    Can the Luna Controller be used with game consoles?
    Luna Controller supports Bluetooth and USB for offline play on many devices. Luna controller is not licensed for play on game consoles.

    How do I buy the Luna Controller?
    At this time, only customers who have received an invitation to Luna may purchase a Luna Controller. If you have been granted a Luna invitation, you can purchase a Luna Controller here.

    What resolution can I play at?
    Games are streamed at up to 1080p with select titles streamed at up to 4K resolution (coming soon).

    What internet speed do I need for Luna?
    The minimum recommended internet connection speed for streaming games is 10 Mbps (35 Mbps required to play in 4K). Better internet connections will result in improved streaming quality and resolution.

    Does Luna support 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz?
    Luna supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. We recommend 5 GHz for an improved gaming experience.

    How much internet data should I expect to use with cloud gaming?
    Unlike streaming movies or music, cloud gaming can consume up to 10GB/hr at 1080p. Check with your internet service provider for data caps and details on how to track your usage. While playing on mobile, we recommend connecting to wifi to minimize data usage from your data plan.

    Where is Luna available?
    Luna is supported across mainland US. We currently do not support Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. territories.

    What are the device requirements to play on Luna?
    You can use the Luna app on:

    PC (requires Windows 10 with support for DirectX 11)
    Mac (OSX 10.13+)
    FireTV devices (Fire TV Stick - 2nd gen, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV Cube - 2nd gen)

    Additionally you can use:

    Chrome web browser (version 83+) for PC and Mac
    Safari web browser (iOS14) for iPhone and iPad
    We are working to add support across more devices in the future. To get more details on identifying a Fire TV device click here.

    Finally. Ce se astepta si nu putea nimeni sa confirme, dar si cu un killer price momentan - pacat ca doar in US.

    Acum incepe ce zicea Xbox atunci, cand au semnat parteneriatul istoric cu Sony - Xbox & Sony vs Google & Amazon - o chestie very long term, evident.

    Ce e interesant este felul in care intra direct pe iOS prin acel Web App (adica printr-un site) si aici intervin cateva ????

    Motivul pentru care Google nu a putut lasa Stadia tot prin web app a fost pentru ca pe iOS Apple tine intentionat Safari rendering engine la o versiune veche fara "modern tools" si nu ar merge. Sunt probabil ceva tehnologii HTML5 specifice care nu sunt suportate de engine-ul de Safari iar Apple inca nu accepta 3rd party web renderers si in continuare Chrome e bazat pe Safari.
    In practica e probabil ca pt Stadia nu au vrut pe site pt ca Safari nu suporta VP9 encoding in browser (ala e codecul pe care google il foloseste pt youtube si orice e streaming).

    O sa aflam dupa ce apar testele pe Luna, facute de cineva capabil si bun voitor (nu DF).

    Nu este foarte clar pentru mine din ce scrie mai sus daca vor urma modelul Stadia de cloud streaming sau modelul GFN, pentru ca daca este ca la GFN, degeaba ai tu jocuri pe Steam/Origin/Blizzard/Epic, daca publisherii/devii nu dau opt in, jocul nu este prezent pe platforma de streaming. In BETA au fost prezente jocuri de la Blizzard, Activsion, 2K usor usor si le-au retras foarte multi pentru ca deh, nu mai iau inca o data bani pe joc, deci nu este interesant.

    Asta cred ca va fi ca Stadia, dai bani din nou pentru joc, ceea ce este un minus pentru multi. Era normal sa fie pretul asta derizoriu acum, ca toate serviciile de acest fel, trebuie sa atraga cumva. Dupa vreun an, minim 15 Euro, ca altfel nu are sens din punct de vedere financiar.

    Asteptam sa vedem daca ajunge si pe plaiurile noastre, candva.

    Cu siguranta ca la Stadia, unde dai banii pe joc si/sau ceva abonament gen EA Access sau in curand, ceva de la Ubisoft, prin care vei putea juca jocurile din acel abonament.

    E structurat pe pachete, asa zise game channels:
    - Luna+ game channel - ai o selectie de jocuri
    - Ubisoft game channel - ai jocurile de la Ubisoft

    Cred ca te abonezi doar la care vrei, Luna+ nefiind base game channel de la care sa incepi, cum e la abonamentele TV.

    Pare mai degraba un fel de Xbox Game Pass pe categorii.

    Cel mai probabil va include si cateva jocuri in base subscription, cum e la Stadia - poate chiar vor da si ei 1-2 gratis la un anumit interval de timp, pentru ca d-aia platesti, streaming-ul fiind gratis.
    Dar jocurile noi pe care le arata ei, gen AC Valhalla, samd, vor trebui achizitionate separat, de la ei de pe platforma.

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla va fi disponibil day-one in Ubisoft game channel.
    Au lucrat cu echipa Safari ca sa mearga serviciul.

It goes live in early access in October, subscriptions start at $5.99 a month, and players in the US can sign up today to receive an invite via Amazon.

    Amazon revealed Luna and its low-latency gamepad today during the company’s annual hardware event. We spoke with platform executives -- and briefly went hands-on with Luna itself -- ahead of this morning’s announcement and gathered a handful of details about the platform, some of which have been underplayed or overlooked in Amazon’s own information dump.

    First up, this whole “Android coming soon” business.

    Da, dar nu reiese daca va fi disponibil doar pe baza de abonament sau si cu ceva extra costs - abonamentul Ubioft separat de cel al Luna, sau costul jocului separat.

    La noi nici Google Stadia nu a venit inca. Si s-ar parea ca nu o sa vina prea curand. Si prea putini sunt dispusi sa se complice si cu un VPN.

    Noi romanii suntem intarziati la orice.
    Netflixul a sosit la noi in Romania abia de prin 2017 cand platforma de streaming a fost lansata in 2010.
    HBO GO a venit la noi cam prin 2018.
    Amazon Prime n-a venit, Hulu la fel. Iar astea doua au preturi extrem de piperate.
    Si majoritatea romanilor inca nu s-au dezmeticit de "filmeonline" si "torrente".
    A scazut in schimb numarul spectatorilor care se duc la cinema sau achizitionarilor de dvd-uri si abonamente tv avand in vedere ca cei dispusi sa cheltuiasca bani pe filme si seriale s-au orientat spre servicii cloud.

    In privinta gamingului, doar GeForge Now pare functional si disponibil in Romania.
    Detinatorii de console au abonamentele lor.
    In rest.......fiecare cum s-o descurca: cumparat jocurile la preturi full sau la reducere, piratat, sau logat pe serviciile streaming prin VPN.

    ---------- Post added 25-09-2020 at 13:51 ----------

    Cred ca lucrurile se vor misca in Romania in privinta serviciilor streaming abia de prin 2025-2027 incolo....dar cine stie ce tehologii cloud vor mai inventa americanii si vest-europenii care vor avea intaietate si noi tot in urma vom fi.

    Te abonezi la Ubisoft game channel si joci Assassin's Creed Valhalla cand se lanseaza. Atat.

A single T4 GPU (Amazon might be using multiple) provides 8.1 teraflops of performance and support for Microsoft’s DirectX raytracing technology.

    What this all means is that it should provide smooth gaming performance at the 1080p resolution Luna currently supports. 4K, which Amazon says is coming soon, might be more of a challenge for Luna on this hardware, especially without dialing down graphical settings in some demanding games.

    Amazon’s main cloud streaming rivals, Microsoft and Google, are using entirely different hardware and operating systems for their own cloud gaming services. Google opted for a custom x86 processor and a custom AMD GPU capable of 10.7 teraflops of GPU performance, all powered by Linux. Microsoft is currently using Xbox One S hardware in its server blades, offering just 1.4 teraflops of GPU performance and all running on the Windows-powered custom Xbox OS. Microsoft has confirmed it will move xCloud servers over to Xbox Series X hardware in 2021. Sony also uses custom PlayStation hardware for its own PlayStation Now service.

    One of these is a Prime Gaming channel, which gives Prime members access to a number of free games that change month to month. The other channels include the Retro Channel, offering a selection of classic games, and the Jackbox Channel, which lists several titles from the party game franchise. Both tiers are priced at $4.99.

    There's also an existing Luna+ Channel priced at $5.99, and a Ubisoft+ channel with a collection of titles from the publisher for $17.99.

    Luna also lets streamers connect their Twitch and Luna accounts together and instantly broadcast their gameplay if they're playing a game on the latter.
