Say goodbye to the Arc or Gem and hello to the PlayStation Move. Sony has revealed the official name for its motion controller, coming this fall in three forms - alone, with the PlayStation Eye, or bundled with a PS3.
Add one more name to the pile of potential monikers for Sony's soon to be detailed PlayStation Motion Controller, the PlayStation Move.
In the dark, distant future, when people write about the history of video games and get to the part labelled "2000-2010", they'll note one thing: 2009 was the beginning of the end for the control pad.
Following up on reports that EA chief John Riccitiello let slip the name of Sony's upcoming PlayStation 3 motion controller, a Sony spokesperson told Kotaku that "Gem" isn't necessarily the device's real name.
Project Natal has a name. Well, at least, a working title. But Sony's motion controller does not have a name. Or a working title. It's just...the motion controller. But does EA boss John Riccitiello know something we don't?
