Amazon Fire TV Controller: Solid, Not Special

Here's a close-up look at the Fire TV's optional controller, which you can buy separately from Amazon's mini-console for $40. It's a lot like an Xbox 360 controller, with some extra media buttons and a significantly worse d-pad. You pretty much need it to play all those games on the Fire TV, and it comes with 1,000 "Amazon Coins" ($10) and a free copy of the Amazon-developed Sev Zero.

Reminds me of something else. I can't quite put my finger on it.
