Is This Amazon’s Own Game Controller?

on Friday, Mar. 14th

The site Zatz Not Funny is claiming to have come across images of an Amazon-branded video game controller/media remote for an as-yet-unannounced set top box.

By way of an overseas regulatory agency, similar to our very own FCC, we continue to hone in on the elusive Amazon media streamer. As the story goes, a fall launch was delayed with the Roku Apple TV competitor now looking quite likely for March or April. Netflix and Hulu appear to be confirmed, as does a forked Android build – similar to what Amazon has done with their line of Kindle Fire tablets. Which makes gaming out of the box quite likely.

Bezos and company could get the drop on both Apple and Google if they can bring a gaming-capable media player to the living room first. Where will that leave the little guys like Ouya and GameStick? Probably as complete after-thoughts.

The Game Developers Conference opens up next week in San Francisco, and there are already rumors that Sony is going to announce a 3D headset competitor for the indie-developed Oculus Rift there. Could we see an Amazon box being touted as well? The American debut of the Sony PS Vita TV?

Every so often we get big announcements at GDC, this could be one of those years.
