August 4 -- Amazon's Luna Cloud Gaming platform is the latest addition to Samsung's Gaming Hub. With millions of Gaming Hub-compatible Samsung TVS sold, Amazon Luna will get more exposure than ever before.
Amazon's cloud-based gaming platform NOW joins Samsung Gaming Center, which already supports Xbox Game Pass, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, and Utomik platforms. While Samsung Gaming Center is available in several markets, Amazon Luna is only available in the U.S.
Some of Samsung's smart TVS and smart displays released in 2022 have become the most popular cloud gaming devices outside of the mature console world, with devices like the Xbox and PlayStation competing.
The Samsung Gaming Hub platform offers access to multiple high-profile cloud-based Gaming services, and the best part is that it doesn't require any additional hardware -- other than a controller pad.
As of now, Amazon Luna offers more than 250 games that can be played instantly on Samsung Smart TVS (BU8000 and later). Amazon Prime members get free access to the Prime Gaming channel, which added four new games this month: Control Ultimate Edition, Myst, Garfield Kart, and Steel Assault.
With the addition of Amazon Luna, Samsung Gaming Hub now has access to over 1,000 games via cloud technology.
Samsung announced the Game Center earlier this year and launched the platform in select markets on June 30. Samsung Gaming Hub is free, and every third-party service included in Samsung's platform follows its own payment model.
