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...

264w ago - Sony's upcoming PlayStation Motion Controller may be codenamed 'sphere' according to JoyStiq (linked above).

Currently both Microsoft and Sony don't have official names for their motion projects, although Microsoft has dubbed their technology as 'Project Natal'.

New FragFX v2 FPS Controller Coming to PlayStation 3

295w ago - Digital Battle claims that a new controller dubbed the [Register or Login to view links] is coming to the PlayStation 3, one which better emulates the mouse-and-keyboard combination which PC users have long touted as superior to console controls when it comes to first-person shooters.

And as an aside, I'm not claiming them right or wrong, as it's really not my genre, so I can't really vouch either way.

To quote: A new peripheral for the PS3 is being released in ninety days that'll allow console gamers to achieve a slice of that pinpoint accuracy.

It's actually two controllers, and unfortunately for any lefties it's obviously designed only for right handed gamers as the buttons on the mouse are located on the left side for easy thumb access. The other controller is a bit like a Wiimote, with its own analog stick and d-pad.

I would definitely take this one with a grain of salt - the article claims it will be out in 90 days. Sure, we may very well see something in that time, but given the multiple delays I wouldn't hold my breath.

310w ago - A PSP clone known as the 2PG console comes with cartridges that allows you to play retro NES games. Moreover, the system has an A/V out and is supplied with a PlayStation clone controller in order to play the games on TV.

To quote: Sure, this portable gaming system might LOOK just a little bit like the Sony PSP, but don't expect it to play any games made in the last 15 years.

Another in a long line of cheap Chinese knock-off systems, the 2PG TC8281 handheld plays a mish-mash of questionable 8-bit and 16-bit retro games that come only on special multi-game cartridges.

The 2PG console comes with five built-in games, as well as an additional "112 in 1″ game cartridge, for a total of 117 games for under $50. Hundreds of additional games can be played if you know where to look for the proper cartridges. The system also has an AV out and comes with a cheezy-looking Playstation clone controller so you can play games on your TV.

If you're willing to take a gamble on one of these somewhat suspect systems, you can get your hands on one over at DealExtreme for $48.80 USD.
