When the Nyko Cygnus game controller was first announced, it looked like it might be a great alternative to Amazon’s pricey Fire TV Game Controller. While the controller itself is built well and feels good to use, as my review explains, I experienced Bluetooth connection issues on all Fire TV models except the 2nd-gen Fire TV. The controller is currently priced at $14.08 on Amazon, and has been dropping by about $1 per day during the last week. If you’re in the market for a game controller and have a Fire TV 2, or are willing to fallback on using it as a wired USB controller, you may want to keep a close eye on this controller and try to pick one up when it reaches the end of its steady price decline.
