Illustration for article titled Is Sonys Motion Controller Now Named Arc?

Sony's stab at motion control for the PlayStation 3 is currently known only as the PlayStation 3 Motion Controller, a name that likely won't stick. But is the glowing magic wand ultimately going to be known as Arc?


That's what VG247 says, citing an unnamed but "concrete source" who outs the PlayStation Eye powered wand as Arc. It was at one point known as Gem, at least during the prototype stage and to the best of EA CEO John Riccitiello's knowledge.


With the PS3's motion controller due sometime this spring, the reveal of that final name can't be far behind. Neither sounds quite "right" to me personally, but stranger things have happened. What do you think?

Oh, and if you have any informative but similarly anonymous tips, you know where to find us!
