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.
