Amazon is now offering its Luna Cloud Gaming Controller for $49.99 shipped. Regularly $70, this is only the second time all year we have seen it marked down with today’s deal being the lowest price we can find. This 29% price drop is also matching the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon. The Luna controller is designed for Amazon’s cloud gaming service “where it’s easy to play games on devices you already own.” Using a wireless Bluetooth connection, it is compatible with Windows PC, Mac, Fire TV, Fire tablet, iPhone, iPad, Chromebook, and Android devices. However, it can also be powered using a USB-C cable without batteries. Luna has low-friction thumbsticks, four responsive face buttons, a 4-way directional pad and a “comfortable” textured grip in tow.
