As part of the accessories sale that is going on today, the Amazon Fire TV Game Controller is on sale for $37.49 today only. This is the first time the new controller has ever been on sale. If you’ve been considering buying this controller or waiting for a sale, act quickly because it is extremely rare for Amazon to put their game controller on sale. From when it was announced until it was discontinued and replaced by the one on sale today, the previous generation controller litterally never went on sale.
The Fire TV Game Controller is compatible with both 1st and 2nd-gen Fire TVs, as well as the Fire TV Stick. It connects via WiFi direct for improved range and battery life over Bluetooth controllers. It has all the capabilities of the Fire TV voice remote, including a microphone for Alexa and voice searches. One thing unique to this controller is a headphone jack built into the bottom that allows you to privately listen to your Fire TV’s audio without disturbing people around you. The headphone jack works with all audio, including movies and shows, not just games. Note that the headphone jack is only compatible with the Fire TV 2.
