Playstation Move Gets New Controller Name

1 min 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…

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
