March 10, 2010 Written by Anthony Severino

Since it’s debut at E3 2009, the PS3 motion controller has been known by the boring working title ‘Motion Controller’. Just a few weeks ago it rumored to be named ‘Arc’, a trademark and a domain name registration backed up those claims. However, a recent finding of a trademark for the name “Move” threw us for a curveball. Finally all the speculation can end, as the real name for the PS3 motion controller has officially been revealed.

Tonight during Sony’s GDC press conference, the PS3 motion controller has been detailed. Among the new information was a confirmation of the name Move. It will launch with 20 games, and support from 36 publishers.

More details are coming in, we’ll update you  further when all information has been revealed.
