Fire TV also offers second screen features when paired with a Kindle Fire. You can start a movie on the tablet, mirror it on the TV, and use the tablet for other tasks--like using X-Ray to look up information through IMDB. Sev Zero is currently the only game that supports Dual Mode Gameplay. With it, a friend can use the Sev Zero: Air Support app to provide additional firepower. They can help you defeat invaders by launching missiles, freezing enemies and deploying explosive decoys.

Amazon doesn't undercut the competition by offering a superior media experience or a lower price. In fact, games truly are the biggest draw of Fire TV. The device is a much more fully featured media device compared to Ouya, a dedicated gaming console which retails for roughly the same price.
