Hands-on with Amazon's Luna game streaming service - The Verge

Quote
But when Luna has a bad connection, it's rough. For some reason, Amazon doesn't seem to degrade the quality of video streaming when connection speeds are bad; it just tries to power on through by dropping frames until speeds pick up. I also ran into issues where audio started to lag behind what was otherwise smooth gameplay, presumably due to a sluggish connection. Right now, it seems that Luna's performance is almost entirely dependent on having good internet

Regardless of how well they play, these games load fast. One of the biggest issues with Microsoft's xCloud right now is that every game is literally streaming from an old Xbox One S motherboard in a server rack, and many games can take a full minute to load. Stadia and Luna are running on powerful servers that don't have that issue. Control loaded far faster than it does on a PS4, and Bloodstained popped up just as quickly as it does on our gaming PCs at home.

There are some big titles there, including Control, Metro: Exodus, Grid, The Surge series, Sonic Mania, the SteamWorld games, and more. It's not as impressive of a lineup as Microsoft's xCloud library (which offers over 100 games), but it's also still early for Amazon's service. It's theoretically easier for Luna to add games than for Stadia: Google requires developers to migrate to its Linux servers, while Amazon is using Windows boxes

Luna is also relying on you paying for "channels" of bundled games. Instead of an all-you-can-eat price (like Netflix or, more relevantly, xCloud) that gives you access to everything on the service, Luna works more like cable, where you'll be able to bundle together groups of channels to get access to the games you want.

It's kind of crazy to me to think that Rift, PSVR, Vive came out in 2016.  It feels like it's been out for ages.

2020 has lasted almost a decade now...
