Early last month, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello suggested (at the UBS 37th Annual Global Media Conference) that Sony's forthcoming PS3 motion controller would hit store shelves as "Gem."
The name, while strange, seemed fitting considering the colorful ball that sits atop the controller. I'm guessing that in the end it was a bit too "girly" for Sony's head honchos.
What moniker are they kicking around now? According to the folks at engadget.com (via vg247.com), the controller's current code name is "Arc."
I'm not feelin' it, to tell you the truth, but I'm sure it'll grow on me. What do you guys and gals think of the name--and the controller itself?
