Amazon's controller isn't much of a looker

Blogger Dave Zatz has seemingly come across photos of the game controller for Amazon's long-rumored media streaming device by way of a Brazilian regulatory agency. The controller will reportedly ship separately, which has me wondering about its cost.

All of the usual buttons are there, sure, and it's by no means the ugliest gamepad I've seen, but I wouldn't feel too great about having to pay for this thing standalone. The lower-middle button sports the logo for Amazon's cloud saves, leaderboards, and achievements service GameCircle.

As curious as I am to see what Amazon is up to, especially in light of its acquisition of Double Helix, the key word her is "see." I'll likely sit this one out.
