While there may be some truly amazing console-level games available for smartphones, it's a moot point if your internet connection is too slow even to play them.
The Luna is the new cloud service from Amazon that's still in early access. However, that hasn't stopped a steady stream of games from joining the service. This June, three new games join the growing number of titles available on Amazon Luna.
Amazon Luna is still technically in an invite-only early access beta, but certain devices let you skip the line and just start playing. Here's every Luna-compatible device today, plus what you'll need to do to stream games on all of them.

We're here to help you figure out which one is the better option.
