Samsung wants to make its connected televisions the ultimate hub for gamers who swear by game streaming! The manufacturer has thus announced the support of Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service.
The 2022 range of Samsung smart TVs welcomes a new streaming game service: this is Luna, the platform launched just under two years ago by Amazon. It will integrate the Gaming Hub, which already includes the most important services on the market such as Stadia (Google), GeForce NOW (Nvidia) and Xbox Cloud Gaming (Microsoft).
Over 1,000 games streamed
This hub is growing very quickly, since it was launched by Samsung last June! The manufacturer had then signed a big blow by arranging the exclusivity of the Xbox TV application which precisely allows access to the catalog of streaming games from Game Pass Ultimate. Samsung is therefore not joking: with the help of Luna, we now offer over 1,000 games that launch instantly on our smart TVs, making the Gaming Hub the premier destination for streaming games “, rejoices Mike Lucera, product director for the game of the group.
Amazon lifted the veil on Luna in September 2020. This new service allows you to enjoy a catalog of streaming games based on several subscriptions. Prime subscribers get access to a rotation of titles, but then there are paid deals starting at $4.99 per month for a selection of retro games. The Luna+ formula at €9.99 is the most complete, but there are additional levels per publisher. Thus, the Ubisoft + “channel” allows you to play all the studio’s recent titles for €17.99 per month.
Amazon obliges, Luna also makes it easy to stream its exploits on Twitch. The platform is available on Windows, macOS, iPhone and iPad (via a web application), on Android, Fire tablets, Chromebook. Unfortunately, it is still only offered in the United States.
