Luna has been quietly going about their business and today they have come out with a number of announcements. From a gaming perspective, the news channels and the games have a lot of potential. Luna has announced 36 new titles to the platform with the launch of their new Family channel and the new feature Luna Couch. Luna Couch allows you to play with a second player via the Luna website or app, even if they aren’t subscribed to the Luna+ channel. They have also announced a new channel coming soon called the Retro Channel, which is said to have titles from Atari, SNK, and other classic publishers. Please note Luna is still only mainland US Only.
Luna Couch allows people to play games together as long as one of the people playing has a Luna account (on selected games). These games can be co-op or full multiplayer titles. This will be a great way to get people to play together and could introduce a number of people to gaming. To set up the Luna Couch it appears to be relatively straightforward as you will be given a code to enter.
To enter a Luna Couch code, open Luna on a supported device, enter the code, and join. You can also visit http://www.amazon.com/luna/couch to enter the code on PC or Mac on a Chrome browser.
