According to website TechCrunch.com, Amazon is gearing up to put out their own console to run against the PC, XBox, PlayStaion, Origin and Steam Hubs. It’s rumored that the console will be able to stream full PC games at 30fps, through the Amazon streaming service. Amazon already has an extensive network of high-capacity servers across the country, which are currently used to power its various digital content and cloud-based initiatives. Sources also claimed that the Amazon console will be similar to Google Chromecast service, which means that it will plug into your TV via a dongle(Roku recently launched its own streaming device employing a very similar design).
Recently images surfaced on the web showing what the Amazon video game controller would look like and it received a lot of criticism from the online community. It’s unclear if it will be included with the Amazon console. The role Amazon’s premium subscription service Amazon Prime will play with the rumored console is also up in the air. Amazon has yet to comment in any way regarding its rumored console.
