: Despite a "Gem" of a slip-up reported on GameInformer.com
by Disney president Steve Wadsworth
during a keynote address, according to Kotaku
, the term "Gem" was "an early code name for the product," per Sony Computer Entertainment of America director of communications Patrick Seybold
. "We haven't announced final name at this point."
Recently a patent
surfaced on Sony's PS3 Motion Controller, however, excluding previous rumors
the peripheral has yet to be officially named.
Today, MCVUK.com (linked above) may have found a clue... Sony's upcoming PS3 Motion Controller could be named simply PlayStation Gem.
To quote: John Riccitiello
refers to new tech as the PlayStation Gem at UBS Media Conference.
Maybe he mis-spoke, maybe it was a slip of the tongue ‚‚ā¨" or maybe, just maybe, EA boss John Riccitiello has accidentally leaked the name of Sony‚‚ā¨ôs upcoming WiiMote contender, which until now has simply been referred to as the PlayStation Motion Controller.
‚‚ā¨úIn the coming year, both Sony and Microsoft have announced new controllers,‚‚ā¨Ě he stated. ‚‚ā¨úMotion sensor controls, Natal and Gem, these are likely to bring new consumers into the marketplace.‚‚ā¨Ě
