Gem "was codename" for PS3 wand

Official title yet to be announced.

Sony has dismissed reports claiming the new PS3 motion-sensing controller will be called Gem.

"The term "Gem" was "an early code name for the product," a spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment America told Kotaku."We haven't announced a final name at this point."

Silver-haired Electronic Arts boss John Riccitiello referred to the motion controller as Gem in a recent conference call. Looks like an official title has yet to be announced yet though.

What would you call the new PS3 motion controller, readers? We vote for The Electromagical Torch of Joy.
