Amazon is now offering its Luna Cloud Gaming Controller for $49.99 shipped. Normally fetching $70, today’s offer is the first discount we’ve seen since back over Black Friday at $20 off. This also matches the best price to date, as well. Designed for Amazon’s recent Luna cloud gaming service, this controller will pair over Bluetooth to just about any device from a Fire tablet or Fire TV streamer to your Mac, PC, and even Android smartphones. There’s a typical gamepad form-factor which pairs with dual joysticks and an USB-C and AA-powered design. Alongside working with Luna, it can also be used as a typical controller, too. You can get a closer look at what to expect in our hands-on review. Head below for more.
A great companion to the Luna Controller if you plan to try and game on your smartphone would be this gamepad clip. The official add-on accessory allows you to position a handset right above the controller thanks to an adjustable mount for taking full advantage of Luna’s cloud gaming perks. It’ll only set you back $13 at Amazon right now, elevating the package for mobile gamers in the process.
When it comes to actually playing titles on Luna, Amazon offers Prime members free access to a series of rotating titles that you can try out right here. Though if you want to dive into the full cloud gaming experience and play titles like Control, Sonic Mania, and other AAA releases, you’ll pay $5.99 per month after the 7-day trial expires. Retro game and more family-oriented packages are also available, too.
