After Amazon unveiled its next-generation Echo smart speakers, lamps, and networking gear, it is now offering some of the best prices ever on its Luna Controller Cloud Gaming Controller and bundles. You can now grab the gamepad itself at $39.99 shipped, which is 43% off the regular $70 price tag, $10 under the previous few mentions, and matching the lowest we have ever tracked. While it is specifically designed for Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service, it is also compatible with a range of platforms and hardware including Fire TV, Fire tablet, iPhone, iPad, Chromebook, and Android gear alongside Windows and Mac machines. Highlight features include USB-C charging, low-friction thumbsticks, a D-pad, and textured grips. Get a closer look at the Amazon Luna controller in our hands-on review and head below for more.
Today’s Luna sale also includes a number of bundle options that pair the controller detailed above with gear that allows you to access your favorite streaming service (mainly Amazon’s) including the Fire TV 4K Stick and the Fire HD tablets. There’s up to 48% in savings to be had here and all of the deals are organized for you right here.
Just note that you can also score the Luna controller above with the Amazon Phone Clip at $52.98 shipped, down from the regular $83 price tag as well. If you plan on using the Luna controller in a mobile setup, this is the best setup from Amazon, so you might as well grab both while they are on sale if you’re interested here.
Alongside our coverage of the new MOGA XP7-X mobile controller for Xbox cloud gaming and the RiotPWR Lightning-equipped mobile controller, we also went hands-on with the new PowerA MOGA XP5-i Plus Apple Arcade and cloud gamepad last month. This one delivers a more typical controller setup with the included phone clip, much like the bundle detailed above and you can get a full breakdown of the user experience right here.
