GeForce Now 3080 now available instantly

After launching over the past two months, Nvidia is now offering its RTX 3080 tier for GeForce Now instantly to anyone who wants it. Prior to this point, the higher membership tier had to be “pre-ordered” with orders granted access at a later date.

The future of cloud gaming is available NOW, for everyone, with preorders closing and GeForce NOW RTX 3080 memberships moving to instant access. Gamers can sign up for a six-month GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership and instantly stream the next generation of cloud gaming, starting today.

Alongside that news, GeForce Now added three new games this week.

Amazon Luna is looking for Linux developers…

Amazon Luna is based on Windows to make for easy game porting, but it seems the platform is planning a switch over to Linux. Phoronix spotted job listings showing that Amazon is hiring Linux developers for Luna involving a compatibility layer for the games. It’s possible this change is to sandbox the Windows games, so they aren’t broken by updates.

[T]his role involves working with Proton – a compatibility layer to run Windows games on Linux using Wine. Luna is committed to working with the open source community around Proton. This role will commit code to open source projects such as Proton and Wine in pursuit of running games in a stable and performant manner
