PlayStation Move sub-controller may be renamed "Navigator"

One intrepid poster at the popular Internet message board 4chan claims to have overheard Richard Marks, creator of much of the Move technology, at a Sony event in New York City today say that the "higher-ups" at Sony aren't happy with the name "sub-controller." The name being purportedly being tossed around by Sony is "Navigator."

If this is what the 'hardcore gamers' are gonna use with Move then it should probably have 'extreme' or 'pro' in the title lol.

Really though the "Navigator" is a step up from sub controller but I think it needs to be shorter i.e 'Navi' (Avatar comes to mind lol)

I dunno, I'm not payed to think of interesting names but since everyone hates the sub-controller moniker they should definitely re-think the name.

glad they're changing it. "sub-controller" kinda sucks

It will probably have the regular Six axis motion control for some motion usefulness(like throwing a grenade). Should be easy and inexpensive to implement!

I think the more important thing about the sub-controller right now is not the name, the "navigator" needs the same motion-sensing/tech used in the "move" cuz It'll suck to buy another "move" for games like "motion-fighters" and such games that needs two motion-devices...

It may also get a light for motion tracking too.

They should call it PS Express... I searched synonyms for precise and came up with Express as the best name and it could also mean to express yourself. I think it's got a nice ring to it. What do you guys think?

Nicaragua3182d ago

Express dosnt mean "precise", it means "fast" or "direct".


Pizza Express
Express Package Delivery

So its not a good alternative, in fact its pretty crap.

@ ^^^^

You're pretty crap!! lol j/k man. There's more than one definition for words you know...

Express as an adjective, the definition is precise or certain

Express is a synonym of precise

Navigator sounds kinda stupid too, they need something short, maybe with an X or Z in it lol.
