PlayStation Move confirmed as PS3 Motion Controller name

Thursday, 11th March 2010 00:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Finally, after nearly ten months of waiting, Sony has announced a name for the PS3 Motion Controller in a GDC event tonight. And it is, as was rather blatantly leaked via a European trademark filing earlier today, PlayStation Move.

SCEA has just announced the name at a press conference in San Francisco, which is ongoing.

SCEA’s Peter Dille described the controller as “fast, precise and accurate,” saying the transition for players from Wii to Move is a “natural” one.

High levels of “precision” and “challenge” will keep the core happy, Dille promised.

Fighting, table tennis, golf games and more were shown in action. You can get a full breakdown on the games demoed here.

    Not a good name at all imho but at least it’s better than “arc”. But then, that didn’t take much.

    Seems like Move would be a better name for Natal as it uses whole body Movement

    Indeed. Sony’s solution looks like more of a ‘Wave’. Or ‘Poke’.
