The Nyko Cygnus is a brand new Android bluetooth game controller for Fire TV owners to consider as an alternative to the official Fire TV Game Controller. This controller should work perfectly with Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks since it uses the standard Android HID protocol, which all Fire TV models support. It features a button layout identical to the official Fire TV Game Controller made by Amazon, down to the same exact ordering of the X/Y/A/B buttons. It’s powered by a pair of AA batteries or if you want to forgo batteries all together, you can power it off of the Fire TV’s USB port by plugging in a micro-USB cable. The Nyko Cygnus game controller is available starting today from Amazon for $24.99. I’ve put in my order for one and will post up a review soon.
