They can't call it Dual Shock 3 now that they've removed the rumble feature, can they? Could it possibly be SIXAXIS, to note the six-axis detecting system? I feel another PR blunder coming up.
"Silly Name, Serious Sandwich."
why do they even need a name for a controller anyway?
call it the "wiimote + 1", but in spiderman font
The whole axis part reminds me of the Nayzi regime back in ww2. Hahaha. It’s soooo wrong to think like that. :( But it’s true! Why not call it, Degree6? Or SixX? Heh. SixAxis just sounds awfully suspicious!
Hahaha, SIXAXIS is a terrible name, why name the pad, cant it just be the official Playstation (I aint writing it in capitals!) 3 control pad. Rubbish third party pads get names, official pads just need to say official!
It sounds like some really lame rap artist. :)
The word is a palindrome meaning that it can be spelt the same forwards as backwards. From a marketing point of view that means its possible to create some graphics that flip and rotate and the word will still look the same.
In otherwords, the graphics would imitate what you can actually do with the controller itself. From that point of view, it's a really good name.
u never know, maybe it even rumbles now.until then the name stays as it is.Nothing has change on their original site and its still very well called dualshock 3
What happened to Dualshock 3? Well technically Why would shock be in the name when it doesn't even rumble anymore. Maybe the fact it could survive drops on hardwood floors or something.
how about they call it a "controller"? Simple to the point and oh yeah that's what it is
YOUR CRAZY, how can you call that a controller
The article was just full of speculation about the name of the controller. No solid evidence for this. A waste of my time.
