I was able to connect via USB with an Xbox 360 controller that was immediately recognized and usable on DMC5. The full list of compatible controllers per Amazon is here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GYNLANRYMK4WTXSS

Free as long as you have prime. You can use your own controller or mouse and keyboard if you like. Check device compatibility here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html%3FnodeId%3DGUFHUSX8X324T4XE

You need an Amazon account, which you can probably link to your Twitch one.
03-06-2022 at 07:36 AM
Yes - here is a link to an article explaining how. https://us.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GEZHHTM8ZRSZRQQC

Yes
Compatible controller list linked in featured comments:

Luna Controller
PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Wireless Controller
Xbox One Controller
Mouse and keyboard

Third-party controllers may need additional drivers. For help connecting a third-party controller to your PC or Mac, visit the support section of the third-party controller's website.

Note: Other controllers may be compatible with Luna, but not all features may be available.

You can also use your phone as a virtual controller. To learn more, go to Set Up a Virtual Controller on Luna.

Its more like gamepass - monthly subscription for access. Prime members get rotating game selection for free.

It's Amazon's cloud gaming service (similar to Nvidia's GeForce now, or Google stadia). Basically all of the graphics are rendered on a server, and you stream the video back to you. So you can play high spec games on crummy hardware (like a fire stick, fire tablet, or cheap laptop with no graphics card)

Was your FireTV internet over wireless connection or wired? The lag I've seen with Stadia has been due to playing over wireless. When I play on desktop connected to Ethernet then it goes away. So I don't think it's your controller but likely your internet connection on your FireTV.
Will make use of it since they hiked up the price for prime membership

Do you have to buy their controller for this thing to work, or is it free so long as you have Prime?

I tried Luna with an 8bitdo controller on a Toshiba FireTV and the lag was horrible. Would it be playable on the TV with the Luna controller?

When you said "full list," I was expecting like a long list. This is just Xbox One, DS4, and M+KB. That phone controller option is interesting though, never heard of that option before.

Look up "Xoutput Stadia" for a possible workaround on a PC. There's a few ways to emulate Xbox controllers and Xoutput works for me.

Same here. My question is why isn't the Fire Stick Gamepad compatible?

It's subscription based, you can only play the games they offer. Of course you could add channels for an extra fee to get more games. Add all current channels and you're looking at $37 a month.

Alternatively, Geforce Now has a free option which uses the games you already own digitally...the caveat is though, if the games you own are the games they make available.

Edit - Wanted to clarify, the basic difference between free and paid GN service is wait and play time. I've never waited longer than 10 or so minutes for a game to load and play time is capped at 1 hour, though you can log out and in (with wait time again) right away.
