I’m Not Moved

not moved
Old and beat: Sub-controller; New hotness: Navigation Controller

Really:

Wondering what Sony’s going to call that PlayStation Move sub-controller — you know, since “nunchuk” is already taken? Wonder no more. Sony part number CECH-ZCS1U just hit the FCC’s database, and “Navigation Controller” is written in nice bold letters right there on the label. It’s looking like this is official, as the Sony US website has been quietly updated with the change, and we think it makes a certain amount of sense, as most 3D games let you aim the camera with your dominant hand and relegate navigation to the other.

Once upon a time, you could have made the argument that Sony could sell sh*t to gamers and they’d lap it up (and you’d be right!) but nowadays, I’m seriously beginning still questioning if their heart is in it anymore.

Yes, I realize that if they give it a snappy name, the Xbots and Nintendorks will throw a fantrum (because, you see, they’d be ‘ripping off’ the nunchuck…somehow), but couldn’t they at least try and offer up something fun like PlayStation1 or Walkman?

Some suggestions:

*The Nonchuck
*(Analog) Nubbed for Her (and his…I guess) Pleasure
*Makes Heavy Rain Fun Controller2

(And yes, KoG, I appreciate the irony of this post.)


1 I always (seriously) thought this was an inspired name.
2 Impossible: even Miyamoto couldn’t manage that feat.

    I’m just really digging the word ‘fantrum’. Putting it on the use list.

    You know I pore over every word you write. You are my new hero. Hey were those Apple Jacks I saw in your kitchen window this morning?
