The newest member of the Amazon Fire family, the game orientated Fire TV Gaming Edition, will arrive on October 5, and it feels like a case of “anything you can do, I can do better” for the online retailer, which looks to be gunning for Apple’s new game-ready TV.

Designed specifically for “high quality gaming” the Fire TV Gaming Edition is a specialized bundle that includes the new Fire TV, a Fire TV Game Controller, a 32 GB microSD, and two games in the form of Shovel Knight and Ducktales

The bundle will retail for $139.99 at launch, and is aiming to up the ante by utilizing the Fire TV’s new dedicated GPU, 128 GB of expandable storage, and ​2 GHz quad-core processor.

Unlike the Apple TV’s remote-like controller, which must be supported by all games on the App Store, the Fire TV Game Controller sports a more conventional design, and includes a headphone jack as well as a built-in microphone for voice search.

Since the launch of the first Fire TV back in April 2014, Amazon claims the device’s game catalog has increased by 500 percent, meaning it now offers the largest selection of games on any streaming media player.
