The controller looks solid. Reminds me of an Xbox with the stick layout of a Playstation controller.

As for Android TV, it’s slated to launch later this year. Certain smart TVs will have it built-in or you can buy it as a set-top box. Who is Google competing against with Android TV? The likes of Roku, Amazon Fire TV and others. Some say Android TV is even competing against the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Until you start seeing the latest Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty’s on these set-top boxes, Microsoft and Sony don’t have much to worry about.
