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

Posted on Thursday, April 3 @ 12:00:00 Eastern 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 (buy it here) 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 MinecraftThe Walking DeadNBA 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.
