- Sony's upcoming PlayStation Motion Controller may be codenamed 'sphere' according to JoyStiq (linked above).
Currently both Microsoft and Sony don't have official names for their motion projects, although Microsoft has dubbed their technology as 'Project Natal'.
To quote: "One name Sony may be using with developers is "Sphere," a word that highlights the glowing, colored orb central to the motion controller's technology.
Sega producer Yasuhito Baba
and his translator both referred to the controller as "Sphere" during an interview at Tokyo Game Show last month.
Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi
also talked about the PlayStation Motion Controller when we asked him if Gran Turismo would support the "Sphere" peripheral."
Will the PS3 Motion Controller be known as 'sphere' or is it simply a developmental name? Time will tell...
