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.
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.
