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.
