According to the report, at the time of launch the console will be featuring games that are already available in the Kindle Fire’s Amazon Appstore. This will certainly ensure that the console will be leveraging a fair amount of titles before going on for sale.
Currently the e-commerce giant is producing a wide range of cool apps and Android tablets like Kindle Fire tablets and more. It has to be mentioned here that Amazon’s Kindle FireHD is one of the rivals of Google’s Nexus 7.

In 2013, Amazon is also preparing to launch three new Kindle Fire tablets in order to expand its control over the worldwide tablet market. The gaming console would be the fourth device that will be launching by the company in the year. This simply means the retail king must be having lots of activities in its hardware section in current days.

Though the mother company has not provided any information about the topic as of now, but it is highly likely that it will officially announce the launch date very soon.
