Sony: There are several candidates for Motion Controller name


Sony head Shuhei Yoshida said during TGS that for now, the motion controller debuted at E3 is being dubbed the Wand Controller.

Until Sony can come up with a proper name, that is.

"There are several candidates for the name of the controller," said Yoshida. "The SIXAXIS and the DualShock 3 — while great product names — are based on the actual tech. The name we pick for the Wand Controller maybe won't be so techy."

Sony is hoping to appeal to both the casual and core market with the controller, therefore Sony is eager to convey the image instead of the tech.

Rumors that Sony already has a Nunchuk peripheral in the design phase are floating about, but Yoshida refused to comment on it. Instead, he said that using the DualShock 3 as a Nunchuk was "the cheapest solution".
