Amazon’s set-top box could offer PC game streaming service

And it will be a dongle similar to Google’s Chromecast

The Amazon set-top box rumor train continues to chug along. The latest info leak from Tech Crunch is pretty substantial though, as they’ve learned that Amazon’s device will be a dongle-like setup similar to Google’s Chromecast, as opposed to something more like the Apple TV setup.

Their sources also add that there will be support for full PC game streaming, a huge step up from the simpler Android-based gaming we were originally expecting. Tech Crunch says the game streaming service will be similar to what OnLive offers, and that games will be streamed at 30fps.
