Playstation Move Gets New Controller Name

35 second read


Remember how the Playstation Move’s nunchuck supplementary controller was saddled with the rather interminable, and terribly uncreative name of the “move sub-controller?”

Well it’s now been given a new name – and surprise surprise – it’s rather interminable and terribly uncreative.

According to an FCC filing, the peripheral peripheral that comes with PlayStation Move will henceforth be known as the “Navigation Controller”. The listing for it on the US PlayStation website has also been edited to reflect the change in name.

“Nav-con” eh? Kind of has a nice, military ring to it. Still, a nunchuck by any other name…

    This should have been called the LubeBottle, to go with the other controller

    Well S***. I think Sony missed something big time. Look at the Nav-Con. now imagine a second one next to it with the standard X O Square and Triangle buttons. put the shoulder buttons on the tip and shove in some good old Six Axe trickery in it and there you go. a innovative control system that will work with your current standard games and leave room for next gen *Cough* motion sensing gimmick that they can think of to put in games. well what do you guys think? :wassat:
