Amazon Fire TV has games, yet is somehow “absolutely not a game console”

A PR email about the Fire TV excitedly states “The affordable $99 media streaming box beats out Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast for serious gamers because it comes preloaded with Splashtop to enable 3D gaming /remote desktop to TVs. For $39 you can get the ultimate gaming controller for an even better gaming experience…. Watch out game consoles!” Yes, Amazon made a special controller for the Fire TV that’s aimed squarely at gamers, with the familiar XYAB button configuration with a D-pad and twin joystick layout that mirrors the 360 controller.
