Amazon’s latest piece of hardware is the Fire Phone, a smartphone built to live in Amazon’s ecosystem, and the company showed off some games running on the unique device during its unveiling in Seattle today.
Amazon is touting a unique feature it calls Dynamic Perspective, which Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said would open up numerous opportunities for game developers. Unlike traditional Android-, iOS- or Windows Phone-based devices, the Fire Phone features four depth-sensing cameras that enable a tilt-based 3D effect. To pull this off, the device uses two cameras at any one time, depending on which ones offer the best view, to track the user’s head. The visual effect appears to be similar to the stereoscopic 3D on the Nintendo 3DS; you can see it in action in the video below.

The Guinness World Record for the largest video game collection has found a new recipient: 31-year-old Buffalo resident Michael Thomasson’s collection currently boasts more than 11,000 titles, earning him a two-page feature and due honors in the recently-released Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer’s Edition.
Thomasson started his collection after receiving his first Colecovision game, Cosmic Avenger, at the age of 12. He sold off his collection twice — once in 1989 to raise funds for a Sega Genesis and again in 1998 to pay for his wedding — but has rebuilt it to what he estimates is a $700,000 to $800,000 treasure trove. According to Thomasson, he has averaged purchasing two games a day since the second sale, budgeting out $3,000 a year for games and trying to never pay full price for a title.
