Amazon seems to be aiming to expand the use cases of the Fire TV Stick and make it a gaming device for casual gamers by introducing the new promotion. Some existing Fire TV Stick users also see the offer on their home screen to persuade them to upgrade their experience and take advantage of the bundled offer.

A recent report suggested that Microsoft is planning to release its Fire TV Stick-like TV streaming device that will let users access movies, TV services, and a game library through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

The existing catalog of games available for the Fire TV platform does not include any compelling titles for hardcore gamers. However, it has games that might appeal to regular users of using the Fire TV Stick as a gaming device, in addition to watching movies and TV content.
