PlayStation Arc now PlayStation Move?

March 10, 2010

Seems Sony’s motion controller naming situation is still as enigmatic as ever.

With a trademark recently filed in Japan for a “PlayStation Arc,” it seemed all but certain the name would be for Wii Remote-esque device. That is, until Sony Computer Entertainment filed a trademark in Europe that breaks out the name PlayStation Move along with a logo (seen above).

The description of the trademarks says the name is for “Game controllers for consumer video game consoles for use with an external display screen or monitor and attachment devices therefor.”

However, the trademark for the logo, filed under the same classification as the name, seems to resemble the letter A, giving obvious backing to the Arc name. Is Europe possibly getting a different name for the device?

The Gamer Gazette will keep you posted as this strange naming dance continues.
