    The including pics are supposedly of the controller for Amazon's rumored set-top box media/gaming console. The images were leaked online early this morning, and appear fairly legitimate. You can clearly see the Amazon logo on the controller. Of course, this can be easily faked, so we will categorize this with all the other rumors for now.

    Glancing at the controller it seems a bit big and bulky. It's probably pretty tough to distinguish a game controller from the competition while still keeping all the right functionality and ergonomics intact. The buttons on the device indicate it will do more than just play games. You should be able to play, pause, rewind and fast-forward with just the controller.

    What do you think? Could Amazon make an Android-based media hub/gaming console which could compete with Sony and Microsoft?
