The 2nd-gen Fire TV Gaming Edition has joined the regular 2nd-gen Fire TV and is now also out of stock. The gaming edition currently lists an in stock date of November 3rd. The regular 2nd-gen Fire TV package, which includes just a voice remote, is now showing a restock date of November 4th. When the regular bundle first went out of stock, Amazon listed an in stock date of October 19th which was then changed to October 30th. The 2nd-gen Fire TV was pushed out of stock as a result of a mistake which listed the device on Amazon for $20 off for several hours. The conspiracy theorists among you may believe Amazon is artificially holding back stock until they release their upcoming software update which is expected to fix several issues with the new device. I personally don’t think that’s the case. The new device has recovered slightly from initial poor reviews and has moved from a mid 2 star rating to 3.1 stars and continues to climb.
