What's Sony's upcoming motion controller called? According to Stephen Wadsworth, the president of Disney's Interactive Media Group (aka Disney's games division), it's "Gem."
Wadsworth mentioned "Gem" during his keynote presentation at DICE 2010. He was discussing the expansion of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 through Project Natal and (apparently) "Gem."
Patrick Seybold, Sony's senior director of corporate communications and social media, dismissed the mention as non-news over Twitter. "Same code name from earlier," he said.
Apparently Mr. Wadsworth is just a little behind the times in the code name world.
The still "officially" unnamed motion controller has also been called Arc. It's rumored Arc is the most recent codename, while Gem was an earlier name attached to the controller.
