Rumor: Sony's PS3 Motion Controller Named PlayStation Arc

Sponsored Links
271w ago - Update: Despite THQ CEO Brian Farrell recently calling it Arc, according to Geoff Keighley's Tweet, to quote: "FYI I'm hearing Arc is NOT the name of the Sony Motion Controller, but a code name." However, Sony has registered the Arc trademark in Japan.

Today VG247.com (linked above) reports that according to a concrete source speaking under conditions of strict anonymity Sony's PS3 Motion Controller will be named PlayStation Arc, of which a domain has also been registered in the same name at PlayStationArc.com.

This news comes just over a month after the previous rumor that the PlayStation 3 Motion Controller was dubbed Gem, which ended up being an early code name for the product.

To quote: "The company is now saying its Motion Controller - the official name thus far - will release "this year": global boss Kaz Hirai had previously claimed it would be out this March.

The Motion Controller consists of one or two wand devices, each topped with a trackable ball. It works with PSEye.

We've contacted Sony for comment."

SCEE replied as expected: "We don't comment on rumor or speculation."

LAME! I can think of a few titles that would benefit from motion control more than some of them...

- super stardust HD (motion control AND 3d would be awesome!)
- red alert 3
- savage moon

Hopefully they wouldnt think of using a motion controler for a 3rd person zombie survival game

I would call it the PS3 Mote ... Nah... does not really make much sense what its name is... anything worse then Nathal (for 360) will be hardly impossible.

how did you expect the ps3 to track the Arc's movement?

haha my first thought was of KZ2 as well! And i prefer Arc over "gem", "wand" or "sphere" !!

I'm more interested in the line up of games that they wil have though...

The name does seem a bit unimaginative, but Arc for some reason sounds better than Gem. I actually think of Killzone 2 with Arc. But at least they didn't call it The Rod.

"Arc" does lack a little something doesn't it?
