Sources have approached Game Informer with an interesting bit of news from one of the world's largest retailers. Amazon is developing an Android based console for release by the end of this year, most likely by Black Friday.
According to those we spoke with who have knowledge of the in-development hardware, Amazon will be leveraging the titles already available on its platform. Each day, the company offers one productivity or game app for free and stocks a healthy library for its own devices, like the Kindle Fire. The console will also have its own, dedicated controller.
We have reached out to Amazon for comment.

Lets count how many cheaper game console things are gonna have been out soon.
- Google's Game console
- Madcatz: Project Mojo
- This here new Amazon thing
- Apple's apparent game console thing, that's probably like an Apple TV update at some point
So, alright. Which one would I buy?.. I dunno. Which one does a comics app for my TV? Alright, I'll take a comixology app please, and Game Informer subscription app. Cuz fuck it, why not... Please?
