Xbox One Media Remote gets outed on Amazon


Jul 21, 2013
Xbox One owners already enjoy a wide range of options to allow them to interact with their consoles. In addition to the ‘traditional’ controller, users can also engage via the Xbox SmartGlass app, or can alternatively direct the console through voice interactions or using gesture controls.

Curiously, however, despite the Xbox One’s aspirations of being considered an ‘all-in-one’ entertainment centre, the console does not have a dedicated remote – all the more unusual when you consider that its predecessor, the Xbox 360, has had one available to purchase for some time now.

But that looks set to change, as a Reddit user spotted a page on Amazon Canada revealing a new ‘Xbox One Media Remote’. The new remote appears to have far fewer buttons than the Xbox 360 version, with only basic navigation and media controls included.

As WPCentral reports, while the Amazon listing has since been removed, a cached version of the page remains available, revealing that the remote will be priced at $24.99 CAD (roughly $22.70 USD), along with a projected release date of March 4.
