The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Amazon Unveils Gaming Set-Top Box, Fire TV [Update: Game Studios Trailer]

Posted on Thursday, April 3 @ 12:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
[Update] The fine folks over at Amazon Game Studios have released a "Sneak Peek" trailer that provides an early glimpse at what's to come for gamers who pick up a Fire TV.

Check out the montage in all its glory below.

[Original] Amazon has finally revealed its long-rumored set-top box. It's called Fire TV and supports video streaming as well as games.
The device is priced at $99 will allow users to stream movies and television shows, as well as play video games and view photos. As one might expect, a number of apps will be supported as well, including Twitch, Hulu, and Netflix.

Amazon plans to outshine Fire TV competitors like Apple TV and Roku by packing in a lot more power than the rest of the set-top boxes on the market. It'll pack a quad-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and a dedicated GPU.

With regard to how it will handle video games, Fire TV will provide a "high-quality, lost-cost gaming" experience, supporting an array of titles including Minecraft, The Walking Dead, NBA 2K14, and Monsters University. Games will feature controller support, as well as Fire remote and smartphone/tablet control options. Make no mistake, this is not meant to compete with next-gen consoles.
