The rumors about Amazon's entry into the game console/set-top box gained a ton of credibility this morning, as shots of a gamepad bearing the online giant's logo hit the web.

Seen on The Verge, the images come from Anatel, a regulatory division of the Brazilian government analogous to the FCC in the U.S. With a blocky design reminiscent of the OnLive controller, the Amazon gamepad features what look like home, back and menu button, along with a dedicated input for the company's GameCircle storefront.


Amazon has yet to officially comment on the living-room-aimed, Android-powered hardware that they're supposedly building. They bought game development studio Double Helix last month, calling the acquisition " part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers."

Keep in mind this might not be a final design for the gamepad. We've reached out to Amazon about the game controller images and will update this story if they respond.
