58w ago - Following up on the previous release and confirming the rumor, today wololo has officially named the next exploitable game that Teck4 is porting TN's eCFW to is indeed Gravity Crash Portable.
Below are the details from his blog, to quote: If you missed both the Ubanix and the Mad blocker alpha exploits, today might be your lucky day. Japanese Developer Teck4 has ported TN’s eCFW to a new game exploit. The game is, as I type this, still available on most stores.
A few weeks ago, developer frostegater announced he was working on a new game exploit in order to bring Total_Noob’s eCFW to even more Vita owner. Sadly, he discovered while working on international versions of the game, that porting his exploits to all locales would not be as easy as expected. Luckily for us, Teck4 also had his own exploit in the work, and was nice enough to share it with the world. Frostegater eventually contributed to this exploit as well, by porting it to the US and EU versions of the game.
203w ago - Update: Despite THQ CEO Brian Farrellrecently calling it Arc, according to Geoff Keighley's Tweet, to quote: "FYI I'm hearing Arc is NOT the name of the Sony Motion Controller, but a code name." However, Sony has registered the Arc trademark in Japan.
Today VG247.com (linked above) reports that according to a concrete source speaking under conditions of strict anonymity Sony's PS3 Motion Controller will be named PlayStation Arc, of which a domain has also been registered in the same name at PlayStationArc.com.
This news comes just over a month after the previous rumor that the PlayStation 3 Motion Controller was dubbed Gem, which ended up being an early code name for the product.
To quote: "The company is now saying its Motion Controller - the official name thus far - will release "this year": global boss Kaz Hirai had previously claimed it would be out this March.
209w ago - Update: 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 - or maybe, just maybe, EA boss John Riccitiello has accidentally...

We are now proud to announce that the name of the game has been picked! It will be called PixelJunk Shooter. Andy, the artist behind the style of the game, has knocked up a stunning logo that emphasizes the liquid element really well, as you can see below!

The other runner-up names were:
• PixelJunk Depths - Thomas Ella
