Our first look at Amazon’s game controller for its rumored set-top box

Amazon Set-Top Box Game Controller

We hadn’t heard much about the rumored set-top box from Amazon this month, but on Friday we finally got a glimpse of what looks to be the official game controller that the device will support. Zatz Not Funny has leaked the first images of the controller, which appears to draw heavily from the Xbox controller design, with similar placement for the analog sticks, the d-pad, the face buttons and the shoulder buttons.

In addition to the standard button layout, the Amazon controller also features the familiar Android icons for back, home and menu and media playback controls (rewind, play/pause and fast forward) along the bottom lip. The wireless Bluetooth controller will be powered by 2 AA batteries and is expected to be sold as an accessory to go along with the media box and Amazon’s tablets.
