PlayStation Move sub-controller is named “Navigation Controller”

Move 4

According to a FCC filing, the once known sub-controller that comes with PlayStation Move is known as the “Navigation Controller”.The listing for it on the US PlayStation website has also been quietly edited to reflect the change in name.

The Navigation Controller was revealed alongside its bigger brother Move at GDC last month at a special off-site press conference in San Francisco.

Both controllers are due by fall of this year.

Thanks, Engadget.

    I very much doubt anyone outside of Sony is going to call it anything other than nunchuk.

    I’m for Navcon. Makes it sound like some sort of military mission/device. :)

    I’m for Navicon, too. No doubt N4G will disintegrate into a war between those who favour Navcon and those who favour Navicon.

    Navcon or Navicon? that isn’t important, what is important is…

    Will it blend? thats the question!

    I was ready to come in here, cursing the stupidity of these controller names. Until I saw Navicon/Navcon, that is. Much better. Personally, I’m for Navcon; Less syllables, so it rolls off the tongue better (I still hate the Move name, though).

    Thank you, VG247, for showing me the light ^.^b
