Amazon leaks Xbox One Media Remote Ahead of Official Announcement

One of the things that I was really surprised didn’t launch along with the Xbox One console was a media remote. If people in your home use a game console for watching video or streaming media that don’t play games, it always seems that the normal game controllers baffle them when it comes to controlling media.

As it stands now you have to use the Xbox game controller on the Xbox One to control your movies and other content. That will change soon though. This week Amazon Canada leaked a product page for a new Xbox One Media Remote reports WPCentral.

Nothing came with the leak in the form of details. Honestly, we don’t need much detail to know what this Media Remote will do. It will work the same way media remotes for the Xbox 360 and PS3 work. It will give you a more familiar bar style remote control with buttons that have standard remote control icons.

That might be no big deal for avid gamers that know which button to press on the game controller for pause/play. If you have non-gamers though, this remote could mean you aren’t constantly having people ask you how to pause a movie or annoyingly hitting the wrong buttons repeatedly. The page tipped a launch date of March 4 and a price in Canadian money of $24.99. That would work out to about $22.70 in the states making it affordable.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
