Amazon Controller Images Leaked

The first images of an Amazon-made controller have been leaked, reportedly for the online retailer’s anticipated entry into the console market.  While rumors have been swirling for some time now, this definitely confirms not only the existence of such a console, but also of a potential impending announcement regarding its release.

So how does the controller itself look?  Kind of somewhere in the middle between good and bad – as gaming controllers it’s pretty standard, with a fair amount in common with the Xbox One in its basic design.  It doesn’t look to be striving for originality, but sticking with the familiar certainly isn’t a bad thing.  It has the traditional: dual sticks, face buttons, a d-pad.  There’s also what appears to be a button for GameCircle – the achievements and leaderboard community for Amazon gaming – as well as media playback buttons on the bottom.

Reportedly, the controller is believed to operated with AA batteries and connect with the console via Bluetooth.  And unlike Sony and Microsoft competitors, it won’t be sold with the system itself but rather come separately.  On the plus side, it is believed to work with Amazon’s own Kindle Fire, which points toward some promising prospects in that area of gaming.
