Leaked Images Show What Could Be Amazon's Video Game Controller

Leaked Images Show What Could Be Amazon's Video Game Controller

The rumours about Amazon's entry into the game console/set-top box gained a lot of credibility this morning, as shots of a gamepad bearing the online giant's logo hit the web. Seen on The Verge, the images come from Anatel, a regulatory division of the Brazilian government analogous to the FCC in the US.

With a blocky design reminiscent of the OnLive controller, the Amazon gamepad features what look like home, back and menu button, along with a dedicated input for the company's GameCircle storefront.

Amazon has yet to officially comment on the living-room-aimed, Android-powered hardware that they're supposedly building. It bought game development studio Double Helix last month, calling the acquisition "part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers."

Keep in mind this might not be a final design for the gamepad. We've reached out to Amazon about the game controller images and will update this story if they respond.

    I was hoping Amazon would be a publisher for games when they bought double helix. Now it seems like they are going to make an unwanted android console.

    Almost exactly the same as a 360 controller.

    Controller looks as dumb and arbitrary as the idea of this console.
