Microsoft has yet to announce the accessory, but Amazon had it listed for release on 4th March priced $22.69 (about 13.70).

The listing was spotted by Engadget but was quickly pulled - however it's still available to view via Google's cache.

The remote has a simple design with a small number of buttons for navigating media, along with the Xbox One controller's two central buttons (whatever they've re-named Start and Select).

It's not like there aren't a number of ways to control media on Xbox One already - the standard controller is perfectly adequate, and if you really wanted you can pair a smart device to the console via the Xbox One's SmartGlass app. But at least it's another way that you don't have to use Kinect.
