What could also be Amazon’s sport controller pops up in FCC filings earlier than its large {hardware} occasion

What appears to be an Amazon-made sport controller has appeared in FCC filings (credit score to Dave Zatz for spotting this first). Whereas an Amazon-made gaming controller could be fascinating by itself, these filings have been revealed shortly earlier than the corporate’s subsequent annual {hardware} occasion, which kicks off at 1PM ET right now, suggesting Amazon may lastly be revealing extra about its long-rumored Undertaking Tempo cloud gaming service very quickly.

It’s tough to glean a lot in regards to the controller from the filings — I can see that the controller will help Bluetooth and each 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi protocols, however I can’t discover any photos of what the gadget would possibly seem like. And the one actual tip-off we’ve got that that is an Amazon gadget is the corporate’s brand on the submitting for the FCC label.

In actual fact, it appears Amazon went out of its solution to conceal the controller’s existence, as these filings aren’t beneath Amazon’s title in any respect. They had been completed by means of an organization named, and I’m not making this up, “Zippy Hippie Tornado Restricted Legal responsibility Firm.” Amazon’s been identified to make use of these kinds of bizarre firm names earlier than.

This wouldn’t be Amazon’s first sport controller — it launched one alongside the primary Fireplace TV in 2014 that you might use to play video games on the then-new set-top field. However the controller stopped working with some newer Fireplace TV units beginning in 2018. (The controller’s Amazon web page remains to be up as of this writing, although you possibly can’t purchase it.)

We’ll know quickly sufficient if Amazon does take the wraps off this new controller and Undertaking Tempo, which has apparently been within the works for a while and is rumored to launch both later this yr or maybe a while in 2021.

Replace September twenty fourth, 12:38PM ET: Added context about Amazon’s earlier sport controller.
