Sony’s Motion Controller to be Called PlayStation “Arc”?

Whether you’ve called it the Gem, Sphere, or Sony’s sex toy of doom, it looks like you’ll have to throw away those old monikers because Sony’s motion controller is rumored to have an official name: PlayStation Arc. According to VG247:

VG247 has it on good authority that Sony has named its PS3 Motion Controller “Arc”. The information comes from a concrete source speaking under conditions of strict anonymity.

Personally, I don’t care what it’s called. I just want the frickin’ thing to come out! Several of my developer friends have used it and they’re extremely impressed by its fidelity. I’m certain the tech will be impressive, but I want to see how developers translate that into fun.

A lot of you hate the Wii and its motion controls, but are you willing to give PlayStation Arc a shot?

  1. I'll happily give it a shot….as soon as it has some reason for me to buy it. It has so much potential…

    I don't mind the Wiimote. I've just not seen them make good use of it yet.

    Thus far, Arc & Sphere > Gem at least.

    I just wish they'd officially settle on something.

  2. If Sony really wanted to push this new hardware, they should take a page out of Nintendo's playbook and package the "Arc-mote" with a free game or fun tech demo or something.

    If it worked for Wii-Play, I'm sure it will work for the PS3 equivalent. "PS3-Play?"


  3. I am looking forward to PS3 version of BoomBlocks. lol

    I hope this goes over well for Sony. I mean with the Demos they gave there is a lot of Mainstream potential like the Wii, but I hope they implement it with the core games.

  4. yeah, Natal and this thing will have to be packaged with something as well as creating a shortage of the thing.

    let's call it "I'm not going to buy it"

  5. If you think that just because Sony's calling it something official now I'm gonna stop calling it "Sony's Sex Toy of Doom," you've got another thing coming.

  6. Now that I think about it, "Sony's Sex Toy of Doom" is actually brilliant! While Nintendo is off trying to secure the little kids and grandma demographic, Sony decides to target the horny women and porn addict audience… which is pretty much everybody else.

    Kudos to you, Sony. Maybe now we'll see what Brazzers can do with interactive software. Imagine Heavy Rain without all the acting and plot and gameplay.

    Kind of creepy, actually. Thanks a lot, uncanny valley.


  7. Meh, I'd give it a shot, if I didn't have to buy it. I wanna see what kind of games are coming out for it first.
