Shots of Amazon’s purported Bluetooth-enabled game controller have appeared online.

The controller was posted on Dave Zatz’s website, after the screens were pulled from the Brazilian FCC. The documents were filed by “Amazon Fulfillment Services Inc.”

As you will note through the various shots posted on Engadget, the purported controller has two analog sticks, your standard four buttons, a d-pad and triggers.

There are all sorts of other buttons as well for media controls – like play, fast-forward, rewind – which could be used for anything from gameplay to watching Amazon video – we’re guessing. It also has six LCD lights embedded.

According to the documents, the firm is using Foxconn Brazil to manufacture the controller.

We reported in January that Amazon is set to release a set-top box capable of streaming games this year, with a very competitive price.

    Looks very, very basic.

    I find it fascinating the way that all these new entrants to the console manufacturing world want to copy the Xbox controller, particularly the asymmetric stick layout.

    @Cath it makes sense to me. Despite playing on PS systems, I despise their controllers. Very uncomfortable compared to the XB layouts, imo.

    I would’ve agreed with you before the PS4 release, but I really like the feel of the Dualshock 4 with the symmetrical sticks, more so than the 360 layout. But I still enjoy a good Razer for PC gaming, for the games that I find a pad more apropos.
