Wonder if anyone has found a good game controller to use with Amazon Fire TV?

I have the Nyko controllers (20 dollars each), I bought two and one was DOA. Seems to be a common problem with these controllers. Its nothing like the PS3 controllers I am used to, but okish for its price.

I have been wondering if its worth using 40 USD to buy the Amazon ones (Which I was under the impression I bought when I ended up with the Nyko ones). Anyone have any experience with those?

Also wondering if maybe it would be worth it to get a couple of PS4 controllers that are supposed to "kinda" work with the Fire TV, or maybe one of these: http://www.mogaanywhere.com/controllers/moga-pro-controller/ which are supposed to work with Fire TV.

Anyone got any experience with this and advice on what to buy?

I ordered the Amazon controller and its great, good as 2nd remote too. Very responsive, feels good in the hands and plays GTA san andreas like a dream. Spend the cash you wont be disapointed.

I'd have said get the Mogo Pro, I've had one for about a year (initially the old Pro, now the Power Pro). Great controller and works with all your Droids and lots of games (not sure if same true about Amazon controllers).

Really hard to tell which is better because I have not seen any comparisons. I know now that staying away from the Nyko ones would have been a brilliant idea.

I shall have a look into it, if the Amazon ones work with other Android devices and a good game selection I might get one to try (I've tried many different gamepads, might as well add another to the list!).
