If you’re looking to buy a gaming headset this holiday season, you may want to make sure you’re comfortable with your current gear.
Amazon has been the source of controversy in the gaming community, with the company often calling into question whether its gaming gear is “gaming.”
In its annual report for 2017, the retailer revealed that it had received $2.8 billion in direct payments from its vendors during the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
The company did not specify whether the payments had been made to Amazon’s own hardware suppliers or to third-party manufacturers, but it noted that Amazon has been working to improve its quality control and the safety of its products.
In a statement to The Verge, Amazon said that it would not be commenting on the allegations.
The company also noted that it has partnered with third-parties to improve the safety and quality of its hardware and accessories.
“We have been working with third parties and third-source manufacturers to improve our quality control, including making our hardware more robust and reducing the amount of plastic that is recycled in manufacturing,” the company said.
“As part of our commitment to safety and the protection of our customers, we have partnered with other manufacturers to ensure their products are as safe as possible and our equipment is made to last,” it added.
“If you’ve had problems with your product, please do not hesitate to let us know.
We will be working with our partners to resolve the issues that you have experienced.”
