Rumour : PS3 Motion control Named “Arc”

46 second read


Gem? No, that sounds stupid. Sphere? Better, but it doesn’t quite have much impact behind it. Love Wand? Perfect, but probably not suitable for mass market…*ahem* penetration.

According to VG247, a sneaky ninja source  – speaking under conditions of anonymity (or DEATH!) – the newfangled wagglerods will be marketed under the moniker of “Arc”.

Sony’s motion controller, a system that utilises Wiimote-like wands adorned with trackable balls, used in conjunction with the PS3 Eye is scheduled for release sometime “this year,” but has yet to receive an official name. Asked about the rumour, Sony have of course have responded saying “We don’t comment on rumour or speculation.”

What do you fine folks think? Is the name real? Is it stupid? Would you rather be holding “Arc” in your hand, or “The Love Wand?”

    Love Wand FTW… but seriously I wonder if we are going to have to buy the Arc and the EyeToy or if the Arc will work by itself…

    I still want Sphere to win

    I’d gladly put my money down for a controller named the Love Wand.

      Aren’t you supposed to have one in your pants already? Unless you’re a girl of course.

    This thing looks even worse than the Wiimote, I’d prefer not to be seen buying it 🙂

    I’ll be hiding this controller from all females that are in my life. The name makes me think of Noah’s arc, and laugh a naughty lough due to the implication.
