how did you expect the ps3 to track the Arc's movement?

haha my first thought was of KZ2 as well! And i prefer Arc over "gem", "wand" or "sphere" !!

The name does seem a bit unimaginative, but Arc for some reason sounds better than Gem. I actually think of Killzone 2 with Arc. But at least they didn't call it The Rod.
