Amazon Announces Luna Cloud Gaming Service

Recommended Posts

The screen shots I've seen looks cool but other than that I haven't seen anything that makes me say I want that or I need that now. I guess what I'm saying is there is no hype. And as far as I know no exclusives or that special feature that makes a person want to try them out. Since its Amazon I will definitely be keeping an eye on their new service.

From reading comments on the internet, I realized one thing that I didn't consider was the fact that Amazon could swoop in and start buying up gaming studios too. That would make it interesting. If all of the creative talent was concentrated in just streaming services it could really challenge the dynamics of the industry. For one there could be a situation where gamers no longer own any games at all and would have to subscribe to a streaming service forever just to play their favorite games.

I guess we'll see how it all shakes out. Someone even speculated that Amazon could buy Sony. Which is totally true and would be really interesting. That would change the industry almost overnight. Google, Microsoft and Amazon could all buy Sony outright. So you'd have to ask yourself if any of them are considering seriously competing why not? If Microsoft did it I could see them going under some type of antitrust review since both Sony and Microsoft make consoles. However, Sony or Amazon would likely have less of a hurdle since neither one technically makes a console right now. Although I must add that I feel like Microsoft would still have a case since the PC and Nintendo still exist.

I feel like this is just the beginning!!
