Now What Could Amazon be Making a Gaming Controller For?

Back button? Check. Menu button? Check. Home button? Check. You've got yourself a fine looking Android console gamepad by the looks of things there, Amazon.

The images, revealed by Dave Zatz and picked up by Engadget, certainly add fuel to the rumour that Amazon is planning to release its own Android-based games console. The pad, complete with Amazon branding, looks a similar shape to the ill-fated OnLive gamepad, what with its lower media-playback buttons. All the modern gamepad staples are there too, with dual analogue sticks, shoulder buttons and triggers. But what about that middle button? A PS4-like share button perhaps? And those dashes on either edge of the pad? LCD player number or battery level indicators? [Dave Zatz via Engadget]
