    Rumor: Sony's PS3 Motion Controller Named PlayStation Gem

    Sponsored Links
    Update: Despite a "Gem" of a slip-up reported on GameInformer.com by Disney president Steve Wadsworth during a keynote address, according to Kotaku, the term "Gem" was "an early code name for the product," per Sony Computer Entertainment of America director of communications Patrick Seybold. "We haven't announced final name at this point."

    Recently a patent surfaced on Sony's PS3 Motion Controller, however, excluding previous rumors the peripheral has yet to be officially named.

    Today, MCVUK.com (linked above) may have found a clue... Sony's upcoming PS3 Motion Controller could be named simply PlayStation Gem.

    To quote: John Riccitiello refers to new tech as the PlayStation Gem at UBS Media Conference.

    Maybe he mis-spoke, maybe it was a slip of the tongue - or maybe, just maybe, EA boss John Riccitiello has accidentally leaked the name of Sony's upcoming WiiMote contender, which until now has simply been referred to as the PlayStation Motion Controller.

    "In the coming year, both Sony and Microsoft have announced new controllers," he stated. "Motion sensor controls, Natal and Gem, these are likely to bring new consumers into the marketplace."

    LOL... it makes sense with that glowing orb on the top of the sensor. It looks kind of like a gem

    I remember people called it "wand" too.

    Gem sounds cooler though...

    "gem" doesn't sound cool... at all.

    I think so neither. But cooler than "wand"!

    Maybe they call it something fancy like "MotionShock".
    So the "DualShock" would have it's descendant.

    Agreed... although it's not spelled the same, it reminds me of the 80's cartoon Jem (see pic below).

    Thats what I was thinking too, something functional and somehow related to what sony has out already. They could even work around the sixaxis name since its, in a way, an extension of that controllers function. "Gem" says nothing, but if thats what they call it, it will catch on I guess. Unless ppl just completely ignore that name and call it whatever they want. lol

    lol. I think sony needs some help with PR really. They should have a survey on names ppl like.

    Thumbs Up

    I updated the first post... as Sony Computer Entertainment of America director of communications Patrick Seybold stated now that "Gem" was just a prototype name and not the final name.

    Guess it was accurate to think it wasn't appropriate. Prototype names seem to always be weird.

    edit: just thought its probably because its the engineers and not the PR ppl that come up with those prototype names.
