VG247 has it on good authority that Sony has named its PS3 Motion Controller “Arc”.

John Riccitiello has apparently called Sony’s upcoming motion controller Gem, speaking at the UBS 37th Annual Global Media Conference yesterday.
“In the coming year, both Sony and Microsoft have announced new controllers. Motion sensor controls, Natal and Gem, these are likely to bring new consumers into the marketplace,” he said, according to IGN.
Sony’s already blanked it: “No official name for the PlayStation motion controller has been announced,” said a rep.
Gem. Gem. Nice turn to it. It’s out next spring.

Basically, if you can imagine something that you can stick on the end of a stick, Sony’s probably just patented it. The patent itself is for an “Expandable Control Device Via Hardware Attachment”.
It’s all bollocks, obviously. The motion controller itself is planned for a spring release.

Sega’s gearing up to announce Natal and PS3 motion tech games, Sega West boss Mike Hayes has told IndustryGamers.
“We’d like to think that in early 2010 we’ll be making announcements about both of those platforms,” he said.
Hayes added that the projects right now are basically in an R&D phase.
“We have our ideas and we know what we want to do, but the technology is pretty new, particularly with Natal, so we’ve got to get to grips with the technology and see if it can do what we want it do,” he said, adding about the experimentation, “I kind of think of it as the land of bunsen burners and test tubes.”
More through there. Thanks, Destructoid.

We must have missed this during our livetext last night. Apologies.
SCEE president Andrew House confirmed during SCEE’s GamesCom presser that the PS3 motion controller will be at the Tokyo Games Show next month.
We assume this’ll be part of Kaz Hirai’s keynote speech during the event in September. Expect the name for it to be announced there too.
Instead, all guests were just treated to a developer’s update for the controller.
Read back what happened at the conference here.

SCEE’s vice president of research and development, Paul Holman, has said that he believes that Sony’s motion control peripheral is a “couple of generations” ahead of of the current competition.
“Oh, totally. It’s another generation forward, or even a couple of generations,” said Holman to EG when asked how Sony’s motion tech stood up against the Wii-mote.
“I know in certain games or applications which are out there, people had to sort of fluff it to make it real for consumers. But this stuff is super-accurate and the impact of that is incredible.
“I think you have to play with it to realise what it will do to games.”
Holman goes on to say that the 2010 release date was given to let consumers know that “it’s real, how it’s real.
“Game developers want to know, if they’re working on a title for next year, whether they should consider it or not.
“We have to send some sort of message,” explain Holman. “At the end of the day, we know the track we’re taking for our technology, we know when we’re going to manufacture, but we have to make sure there’s a good catalogue of games to back it up.”

SCEE will show its Sony motion tech at Develop in Brighton this morning, and we’re liveblogging the session after the link.
The firm promises to show “a lot more about the new PS3 controller shown at E3,” giving “several real-world examples of such techniques as used in recent and soon to be released PS3 and PSP titles from both Sony Computer Entertainment first party and external developers.”
Missable? Not really. We’ll be filming it as well, so we’ll aim to get video live as soon as we can after it’s over.
The session runs from 11.00am-12.00pm BST.
