Leaked Images of Amazon Gamepad Surface

Amazon, the popular online retailer, is well known for thinking out of the box and creating its own devices such as the Kindle e-reader and Kindle Fire tablet; but it seems that Amazon may be ready to take another step forward in the industry. With leaked images of what appears to be the controller of their rumored streaming device, Amazon may be preparing to takeover our TVs as well as out computers.

There have been many rumors surrounding the streaming device, but not many facts. However, by looking at the device's controller, it may be that Amazon's device does more than just stream TV shows. While the controller has many similarities to that of the Wii U Pro controller, several buttons have icons often seen on Android devices as well as three buttons to play/pause, fast-forward, and rewind. This could suggest that the final device plays apps from the Amazon store in some fashion or even full fledged games like that of actual consoles.

While nothing is final until Amazon actually starts making announcements, gamers may find themselves drawn to a new device other than the PS4 and Xbox One very soon.
